NWBoarder I can't directly compare the weight of the Targas and the Factory for you since I have not had a chance to play with them in a side by side comparison. That being said, I'd imagine it's fairly negligible. The Targa might be a little heavier since Rome is still using Aluminium heel cups that wrap down into the baseplate. I still don't think it's going to be that much heavier though. I mean, I went from Cartels, to Union Flites, to 390 Boss. The Flites were crazy light, but when actually riding, I didn't notice the weight difference between any of them. I only noticed it when carrying the board, and even then, it was only barely noticeable. As for the quality of them, I have had no issue at all. People who have issues with loose screws usually have loosened them at some point, and then not re-tightened then properly. Not always, but usually.

kaipirinha81 And regarding the Weight are the Targas too much heavier than the Factory?
I prefer the design of the targas but I have read some problems regarding his reliability and screws getting loose even at the first day on the snow.
However I know it's too much easier to find bad reviews on the web than good reviews, because people had tendency to expose the problems when they appear and when everything is normal sometimes they forget to review.
I would like to continue reading your opinions/experience on this subject.
Best regards and thanks for your help.

NWBoarder The Targas will pair up wonderfully on your on your Heritage. I ride mine with 390 Bosses right now, but I'm going to be picking up some Targas for it this season.

Manicmouse Union are good with customer support and sending out replacement parts. I haven't heard anything about Rome but maybe someone else can comment?

kaipirinha81 ALready choose the Heritage, now I am looking for a pari of bindings and I am undecided between the Rome Targas 2013/2014 and Union Factory 2013/2014
weight: From what I read the The Targas are very heavy.
Reliability: From what I read the Targas had someSo problems in previous models
Configuration options: From what I read The Targas also win these feature
Design: Targas wins again.
To conclude we Have 2 cons ans 2 pros for each binding, And I don't know what to choose.
Best regards

Neither the Legacy nor the Heritage are true twins. They're both directional twins with a little setback.

Stony Rice I went with Union Atlas due to the stiffness and damper.

Haven't tried them out this year though so I don't have an opinion yet.

kaipirinha81 Hello again I already took my decision it will be the Heritage . The doubt is if I choose the Heritage X 159 or the Heritage 160 I am limited to this sizes.
My Height is 1.82meter, weight 74kg and Boots K2 Thraxis size 11.5 US.
I also would like to hear some opinions for a good pair of bindings for this setup can I talk about bindings here or should I open another topic on the Bindings section.
Best regards

Stony Rice I rode both on a demo day last year and chose the heritage over the Legacy.

The Legacy felt a bit squirrelly and wasn't as stable on the carves as the heritage was.

The ride on the heritage was just much smoother and stable.

I did like the Premier F1 also but the true twin was the kicker.
