Varsis I think im going for the romes. Do they have a lifetime on the base plate like most? Also is 280 a good deal on them? Or is that a bit high? Im looking at getting them locally but that doesn't matter to me. Is there an online store in canada that sells them, was looking at empire but they don't have any rome bindings. It will be about 305 with GST....

Oh they're different. The Sl highback is stiffer front back and softer side to side. The base is a little stiffer and ligter too.

That said if you want SL's, get Flux SF45's, if you want Forces, Get TT30's. Flux just make a better binding I'm finding.

Nitranes for an inbetweener. They can be a pain in the ass if they don't match your boot well, or if you wanna use them to demo other boards on a cold day (footpads hate coming off), but other than that I really liked mine. If they match the boots I get next year I'll be picking up another set.

Varsis Im going to go take a look at these bindings in person and decide at that point. Basically if I want forces though I have to decide tonight and order them tomorrow. Im not too keep on the Yellow ones which is all they have.

im still up in the air either burton prophecys im hearing some really good stuff about them or the 390 boss. I also hear the burton Cartel Reflex is a nice binding. But the prophecys are similar.

I really like the idea of the cant system in the rome's which the forces do not have.

)(ood I'm running Flux SF45's on my Forum Conflict (John Jackson's model). I believe it's the stiffest board in Forum's line this year. The SF45's are stiffer than the Force's I previously had, and I absolutely love this combo. I ride everything from double black powder runs to park sessions minus the rails. I ran 2 pairs of Force's before I realized that the toe straps just weren't for me. I would add the SF45's to your list...

Varsis Ok. Hmm I think the forces might be the way to go. What is the difference between the targa,390 boss, and the 390? Either looks good I read the targa is the same as the 390s but a bit more padding making them comfy. Not change in response. What about the 390 boss?
01-11-2011 03:23 PM
notter123 I would say forces or 390s i believe forces are a bit stiffer then 390s so better at bombing blacks and such, but 390s are better for rails and park..
