What are important differences between the Phantom and the Blackhawk? Price wise there only $10 apart, to me it seems like the Phantom is a little more All Mountain oriented and the Blackhawk is a little more Freeride oriented. Also, about Raiden's sizing, I wear '07 K2 T1 size 10 or 28 and the medium goes to 28.5 according to Raiden. Not sure if I should go with medium or large.

What do you guys think? There aren't many reviews of the Raiden bindings so anyone with experience with them I'd appreciate your opinions.

Nolefan2011 You're right, I'm thinking of the Force SLs. The upgrade from the Force. Good for freeriding. Always confuse the Force and Contact by name.

I have Ride Delta's, but would go stiffer. A Rome Targa or Union Contact Pro would be sick for this board.

You can find last years Cartels or Deltas for 150 if you look hard.
Contact Pro's are softer than your Delta's.

For that board I would look at Raiden Phantoms, Flow NXT's, Flux SF45's, or K2 The Company.

Milo303 Targa or K2 Auto Uprise

My Auto Uprise just showed up, and I'm super impressed. I had checked them out in a store but never got to rip them, and was so impressed I had to buy them.

Super soft foot bed, squishy ankle strap and the most adjustable toe cap that I know of in the biz

Bindings for my new Optimistic

I just picked up a new Yes Optimistic and want to get some advice on which bindings would work well with it. I want something that has some stiffness as I'm more freeride oriented. My budget is $250 and so far I've come up with the following:

Rome Targa
Burton Cartel
Flux SF45
Ride Capo
K2 Company

Any opinions on these or are there better options out there?
