Default Rome 390 or Burton co2?

I am stuck between these 2 bindings I dont know which one I should get. I am looking at the Rome 290 09 model and the Burton co2 08 model (08 because I can't afford the 09.)

Anyways the type of riding I do is mainly through woods, ungroomed trails, and I would like to start getting better at my rails, jumps, pipe, etc.

I have a Burton shaun white 152.

390's. Co2's are too responsive for anything other than boardercross, its rediculous.

or you can spend like $30 more and get the Rome Targas that have adjustable stiffness ankle straps and stiffer highback.. everything else on them is the same as the 390's

I love my CO2 for riding the trees. In the woods is when I want the super responsive. I dont really like the park but for the whole rest of the mountain my CO2s are great bindings.

well if you want to ride park you just take the inserts out of the ankle strap, and if you want a nice mid range, you put the soft insert in, and if you want stiff for in the trees put the stiff insert in.. not that you carry them with you or anything lol, but better than just being set with no choice.
when i ride 'out of bounds'/ trees i like stiff, we trees are tight together and sharp turns i sure as hell dont want loose feeling bindings

I personally would want a stiffer binding when riding woods because you need them to be super responsive. But a good med stiffness is good for the park (softer bindings feel sloppy to me). So go with the targas...it sounds like thats what you're looking for. Or check out the Union Data. That would be my choice.
