Union Force-DLX, Rome Targa Binding, or Ride Beta UL MVMT

Looking for something to replace my Ride Spi bindings, getting tired of the stiff hard to release ratchets and not exactly cushy feeling, but still want a responsive binding similar to the Spi. From my research, these are the closest to meeting these specs, with the beta mvmt being the least compatible but with Ride's new ratchets that are alot smoother. This will be mounted on a ride concept tms and I do 70-80% freeride, 20-30% park(jumps)

the force dlxs are more designed for freeride, but may be hard to find. the targas it hink are more designed for freestyle, so they may not be the best for you. and the rides i have no idea about, but i have heard good reviews of them.

I thought the targas were for freeride, while the 390's were for freestyle

ya the targas are for freeride and would prolly be perfect for you
my friend has the forces, and while i have heard a lot of good stuff about them, they are causing him quite a bit of problems (ratchets keep malfunctioning, strap covering ripping, etc)

does he have the forces or the dlxs? because the dlx are just about their top of the line binding. about the targas: they are freeride, but i have heard that they are pretty soft for freeride.
