I'm sorry if this is a repeat question, but I've searched and can't find a good comparison of the two. I am a free rider i like back country, trees and going fast. These will be going on my new premier fl-r. I want the most durable binding i can find. These are both very good bindings from what i have read and I'm sure i will be happy with either one. What I'm looking for is what the advantages/ disadvantages of them are. I have Burton Shawn white boots from last year in size 11 if that makes any difference. Thanks for the help in advance Ross
I own both but haven't ridden the sl's(just played in the yard). My targas are definitely stiffer plastic. The sl's feel lighter than air. I'll let my son ride the targas next trip(he gets his first board for x-mas, no more rentals).
i have the targas and love them. they are by far the most durable feeling bindings i have ever ridden. like someone else said they are so customizable, not only for your preference and riding style, but also for your individual foot and boot. i really cant say this enough. you can do things like actually adjusting for different flexes on different sides of your foot. while i havent riden the other binders your lookin at, i can tell you that i have been nothing but happy with my targas. and as for stiffness, i was riding these when i was 270lbs and they were still plenty stiff for my free riding (they also didnt break haha).
