Nivek Targas cause they have customizability with a great toestrap, solid smooth ratchets, and canting. ATSE's cause Flows are the most comfortable bindings with that big strap and the toe-heel performance is great.

Reasoning? Thanks for the suggestions, I started reading some threads on here about the Flows...not so sure...wish I could try 'em out first. It seems like they might help with my ankle pain issue...?

Nivek If you don't need this till next year I would look at Raiden Phantoms. Super good, comfy, solid toe strap and comfy ankle strap.

If you need them now I would put either Rome Targas or NXT ATSE's on mine, if I was getting one.

Binding to go w/Slayblade & DC Judge Boots?

I've been doing a lot of research online (unfortunately I haven't had time to look at many bindings in person except K2 & Ride), I think I've narrowed my selection based on what I think would work well with my riding style and setup(http://www.snowboardingforum.com/sla...-bindings.html) based on reviews etc.(in no particular order):

1) Rome: Targa or 390 Boss.
Like: Adjustability, Auto Strap, Canting options, Adjustable flex on ankle strap.
Unknown: Toe and ankle strap comfort. Compatibility w/boots, board and riding style.

2) K2: Auto Ever, Auto Drone or Formula.
Like: Ankle strap hinge, funnel to feed ladder into ratchet, Auto, Forward lean adjustment, Harshmello.
Unknown: Toe and ankle strap comfort. Compatibility w/boots, board and riding style.

3) Ride: Double Agent or SPi.
Like: Customer service, Adjustable flex on ankle strap, toe cap strap seems like it would hold well and be comfortable.
Unknown: Toe and ankle strap comfort. Compatibility w/boots, board and riding style.

A few questions:

1) Does anyone have any firsthand knowledge of how any of these bindings might fit a pair of 09/10 DC Judge boots (sz 11)?
2) I prefer toe cap to over the toe. Which toe strap slips the least/is the most comfortable?
3) Canted footbeds seem to make a ton of sense, but I don't really have a wide stance or knee problems, would I still benefit from them?
4) BOTH zones of the BOA Focus have a cable that runs through and tightens the same area where the top of the ankle bends/where the ankle strap goes (I think I need triple boa focus, lower, upper and ankle lol) and I always experience mild discomfort in this area. Which bindings' ankle straps would be most comfortable?
5) My boots are quite stiff, would a stiffer binding (Targa, Double agent) be too much?

Any other things I should consider, suggestions, advice, feedback etc...would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks
