Default bindings... targas vs customs

Hey

My friend is looking to buy his first setup...

he is trying to decide on his bindings but cant decide on either Rome Targa's ('07 for $114) or Burton Customs ('08 for $84)... hes gone snowboarding twice. He is mostly focused on freeriding but he hasnt tried the park yet so that might be a future possibility.

So what do you guys think? Targas or Customs?

(i'm really biased towards the targas cuz i have a pair myself and they are definitely the shit... but ive never tried customs)

customs, the targas are too performace oriented for a beginner. The customs are softer and more forgiving, but still repsonsive enough to HELP the rider.

though if you can find some, I think the union cadets are a better buy than customs

Targas all the way. Since he's a beginner and doesn't know his style, Targas are perfect. As an owner, I can say that they've got mad tweakability and can support any riding style... And if your Targas are shit, sit down w/ em for an hour and fit them to your boots.

Targa's its a binding he won't out grow as he progresses. Just have him put the softest c flex strap in the heel strap and he basically has the 390's.
