hmm it's not that i like rome products cause i never owned one visually rome stuff looks great, but i dont care about it, all i want is equipment that will work for me and last long. im just reading a lot while im waiting for cash to buy stuff and changing my mind often about what should i buy, first i was 100 % sure about cartels, then i wanted unions, now its rome.. :P

so i can't say what i like more, rome bindings look sick for me, and one thing why i want rome over union is that according to what i read canting option is good for people with wider stance, so its me. im 193 cm tall and i like to have wide stance, like most of tall people i guess?

anyway someone in other thread said that any of those bindings will work for me, so that's most important

but why would you recommend 390 boss over targas? they are softer so they will work better for all mountain riding?

Thats fine, like I said, try them out and get a feel for them, not trying to undermine or hate. Everyone's different, and likes different things. I love my new Targas, but personally, I think the Targa's are too stiff (even with the ankle inserts removed) for 50% park/fs riding, and I think the 390 boss are a better all round binding for a bit of everything. Just because they are softer, doesn't mean they are not as good, I just think they are better suited for all-round use. I use, and will predominantly be using my Targas for shredding, but occasionally may lap the park. If they work well for you then great, but I don't feel that they are the best all-rounders, which by the sounds of it, is what you want??

yeah, exactly.

i'm not pro anyway, i can handle powder etc, but in park im newcommer. got some experience from 7 years of skateboarding but that's totally different..

let's say it short, i'm just having pure fun on snowboard and i want setup that will work in the forest, where i want to ride and jump, and in the park - means setup which i can use wherever i want

anyway i hear you about 390 boss vs targas and i think that will be better idea to take 390's actually. i just hope that 390 boss will be not to soft for powder

I can also add, my buddy got a Slayblade last year along with K2 Company bindings, and raves about how much he loves the combo. Seems to go well together...responsive without being too stiff, super light, and well-priced.
