BadMojo I havn't bought either yet. If I went for the Targas I'd have them by now, but I think 390s are in my best interests. But its no biggie to just wait until next season for em.

lateral stiffness would refer to side-to-side stiffness whereas torsional stiffness would refer to uh, i guess the twisting stiffness. bleh that's a crappy explanation. listen to paolo and go google it

indoblazin They are crazy adjustable, but more in terms of fit and forward flex. You can adjust the highback angle up to like, 22 degrees or something, you can move the heelcup back/forth and there's like 9 positions and three stiffness options for the anklestrap. For park riding I like to have a soft lateral flex which is where the Targas are quite stiff (hence the great power and responsiveness for pow and freeriding). I like my soft, flexy and admittedly cheapish-feeling Customs for messing around in the park. My two cents.

Why is everyone saying that Targas are bad for park?

I don't own Targas, but I may soon. They are supposed to be crazy adjustable, and at their softest are softer than 390s, according to the Rome website. Also, I've had 3 different boardshop guys tell me that they'll work. Course that could just be sales pitch, so.. Why is everyone saying these won't work?
BTW I would get them to go on a Rome Machine.
