bseracka Yeah you're probably SOL on the Rome. When I ordered they still had both sizes.

I'm that dreaded size 9.5 boot which is between the S/M and L/XL that Rome puts out. They only have the S/M left and I'm hesitant to pull the trigger on that. I do NOT ride a reduced footprint boot. The color combo, though, would be sweet with a Cobra.

Anyone ride the Tagras in a S/M w/ a 9.5 boot?

Heritage is up for sale as it no longer fits in my quiver.

If your only going to have one board go with the cobra.

Chef Jer....what is the Cobra going to do for you that your J. Lynn Phoenix can't? I was looking at the Lando/J. Lynn Phoenix but can't tell the difference other than artwork and slightly more setback on the Lando. I'll only have one board, and have had a hard time deciding between the Cobra, Heritage, the 2 Lib boards and the Jones Mountain Twin.

No park, no tricks, no switch. 95% of my riding is in Washington state/Whistler, so heavy, chunky snow most of the time.

Sounds like I'm going to need a moderate to stiff flexing binding. I handled some in the shop and can really see what people mean about the Union toe strap not being as "smooth" as the others.

It seems like decent options would be:
Burton Cartels
Burton Malavitas
Burton Genesis
Rome Targa
Ride Capo
Flux SF45

Thoughts? Advice?
Cartel or Targas (only two bindings on your list I've had experience with). My 390's, while a fun solid binding, were a little too soft for pure freeriding.

phony_stark You can't go wrong with anything listed above, I would say if cost is a factor.

Union Force/Burton Cartel.

Incredible value for the money.

@Chef' I'm, most likely gonna buy some SL's for my great dudes board this year. I love the highback.
