Rome 390's, fer sure... very adjustable, comfortable and flexible.

My cartels have quite a bit of forward lean too (as they come), which I imagine isn't good for freestyle... but it helps you ride your edges more, so breat for carving & pipe riding.

I would choose Targas over Cartel's anyday. However, If strictly for freestyle then neither of those you mentioned. The 390s would work better however (as much as I love Rome) I think there are better freestyle oriented bindings (again if freestyle is your only business)

My opinion:

80-90% Freeride and 10-20% freestyle = Targas
50% freeride and 50% freestyle = 390's
100% freestyle = Neither

i would go with targas out of the 2. I own a pair and i love them. The stiffness is fairly adjustable.

I use the softer of the two strap inserts but I haven't tried running without inserts (softest).

The targas are definately nice, I'm trying to decide between 390's and Union Forces for a freestyle binding.

Can you get different inserts for 390s? Or is it just for the Targas?
