Default Beginners Bindings

Beginning boarder. I probably will not try the park for a good while, and even then, nothing serious. Mostly freeride/all mountain with my wife.

I was looking at getting some Rome Targa's.

Any reason I should stay away from these as a beginner?

My impression is that they are a higher end / higher performance binding, but are also customizable to a good degree.

I'd appreciate a little feedback.

Thanks y'all.

If you're progressing fairly quickly, I think you'll begin to appreciate the customizability (word??) of the bindings.
I'm riding Flow Amp9s right now, and am enjoying them, although still trying to find that sweet spot between control and ease of slipping them on.
Not sure about your size/weight, but if you're a bigger guy, you may wish for a stiffer binding anyways.

Overall, I think beginners (myself including) shouldn't be too afraid of a higher performance binding/board. Although learning or starting may be a bit tougher, overall, I think you'll progress quicker, and will learn the movements more accurately, as you have to overcompensate for the stiffness of the board/binding, to do what you wish.

Just thought of an example for what I mean above.
I ride a Forum Youngblood, and above bindings.
My friend wanted to try my board/bindings for a coupla runs, so I was stuck with his Arbor Roundhouse w/ Burton Cartels.
The board rode ME, because I was not used to the stiffness of both, the board and binding, and was used to much less power/effort that I have to put into my board/bindings.

Food for thought in my humble opinion.
