PowderManDan I just bought the FUSE AT and I must say they are extraordinary bindings.

The rear entry is amazing with the pivot system that lowers or lifts your foot in to place.

Also the uni strap means it's easy to pull it all up over your boot in one go before locking in.

At one point I was in to deep snow for the rear entry so I undid the straps, locked up the rear then entered via the straps. Brilliant.

Also the feel is amazing like I can feel my feet locked to the board but with not particular pressure points in one place to the fastening pressure is even across by boot (Burton Moto's).

drstone yeah I know all about that, 2nd month riding on them( probably the 25th day using them though) the toe straps started to pop open randomly.

going with union factory's next season. I need something that can stand up to 220 lbs moving at speed haha

next bindings still wont be rome though lol. i switched back to some older ride spi's and i actually like them more
I had some 390s that had such light springs on the ratchets that they came open on their own. Now I have the Targas that I just don't like for various reasons (mentioned in my blog). I'm sure there are people who swear by them, but for me two strikes is enough.

Donutz I've added this thread to my faves, since I'm intending to replace my Targas this post-season.

New set will not be Rome anything.

snowman55 Another vote for Cartels and Vitas. I love them. I just wish they had little more canting than what the Autocant provides.

That's good to hear. I won't count that against them in the future.

SnowDogWax Forward lean is getting old. Might say they are better but not $70 better. You always pay to much when buying the wrong equipment.

The Factory definitely isn't $70 better. Plus it gave me calf bite with the stock forward lean.

Mine did the same thing. The ankle straps slowly wore down to the point where they are not as lively, but they still work great. The toe ones on the other hand got worse and worse until they eventually didn't do squat.
