Basti Don't overcomplicate it with more suggestions. All the ones that were made here are very legit.

If you don't need canting and not too much dampening, go with Flux DMCC light or TT30s. They are extremely light, comfortable and super solid.

If you want the most customization options, got with the 390 Boss. A bit heavier but still great bindings with canting.

If you want an overall very solid binding which is a bit lighter than the average go with Malavitas, Cartels or Phantoms.

That's all you need.

biocmp I went to the local shop and saw the Burton Cartels and Malavitas but they didn't have the 390 Boss's or the Flux DMCC lights.

Given my riding profile above, anyone else have suggestions?

Thanks for all of the replies so far. Everyone says the Romes are really heavy, do they make that much of a difference? I'm still new.

Snowklinger, since I'm staying with the Proto, do you think I should size down? I rode a 153 pickle last year and I wasn't a huge fan. I assumed it was too small for my weight.
The proto at 54 handled my weight just fine at speed, obviously not the way a heritage will, and I expect my Evo to flap more, but as I have stated repeatedly, the more I ride, the less of a hurry I am to bomb it to the bottom. Way more fun to be had at 15-20mph than 55, and I'm trying to die less. The '57 will be fine for you also, its just an inch.

a bag of it I loved using flux's dmcc lights last year

abqmike37 I'm going to go with last year's Union Contact Pro with this year's Proto. I think it will be a very light and responsive setup.

snowklinger I liked my K2 Uprises on my Proto last year, albeit they practically disintegrated in about 45 days. I'd still use them, but I'd skip the auto and go with the Company.

Also I believe the Cartel and Malavita are both great pairups for the Proto. I'm a plastic - unibody base kinda guy hence these choices.

I'll be putting Malavitas on an Evo this year.

I'm the same size as you are (175lbs, size 9), but ride a '54. There is alot of range on this board imho, so there's really not a wrong answer. The '54 was perfect for me, and my Evo will be a '54 as well.

biocmp I've really been looking at the Burton Malavita and the 390 Bosses, because they have such great reviews.

I was hoping to get some people to reply who've used these bindings either with the Kaiju or with the proto or the Evo. Just to hear another perspective.

Thanks for reply.
