IF anyone should take anything away from this thread, it is what a good fasioned trolling looks like.

thanks, thats almost everything i wanted to know.
well from unions i love atlas blue/white cause they will look not bad with volkl dice board, but those targas look sick as well..
Rome Targa 12/13 available online at the Blue Tomato Shop
i just have a feeling that they are like 5 kg each haha, muscle bindings
i will wait if someone can tell me something about targas bindings maybe, for now atlas are my favorites.
btw what boots do you ride with those bindings ? i read somewhere that not every boot fit perfect with them.
i guess you have some softer boots , but im just curious

It's perfect for my kind of riding, I'm in Northstar's park for most of the day, but I still will ride fast and jump off shit at Squaw on these.
The Contact Pro is going to be softer than the Atlas, but still an all mountain binding. It was designed by Gigi Ruf, who kills it in the backcountry, so although it is a softer binding than the Atlas and Force, it will still take care of you all over the mountain. A little more flex from side to side, but the response when you lean straight back into the highback is there.
The one great thing I like about Union bindings is their simplicity. They are bomb proof, solid binding that have everything you need/want in a binding, and nothing you don't need.
I personally do not have any first hand experience on the Rome bindings, but I have heard really good things about the 390/390 Bosses. The 390 is going to be a solid, all mountain binding, similar to the Atlas. I think the Bosses have a canted footbed (correct me if I am wrong someone), so if you're not a fan of cants, stay away from them. I think the Targas are a little stiffer than the 390s, but I'm not too familiar with Rome product, so someone may have something else to say.
Like I said, you can't really go wrong with any of the bindings you've listed. Pick the one that you visually like the best, or the one that fits within your price range. Once you begin riding, and rising different types of egar, you'll be able to differentiate beween your preferences and whatnot, and zero in on the type of products you really like riding.

well it will be my first good setup, dont have so big knowledge about tech.. it all seems to be good for me you know, everything seems to be perfect. in my case its like riding a bike and then changing for maybach good to hear to every of those bindings will be good for me, but still dont know which should i take :P what would you suggest?
about flex i know a bit but still dont have any real comparison

Any of those bindings will work for the riding you want to do.
What's going to make a difference is your personal choice/preference in flex and added tech featues on the bindings.

Hi there, cool conversation you had here ^^
well.. some time ago i wrote a thread about buying new setup, was 100 % sure about buying new cartels, but since im waiting for cash i started to check some other bindings and here i am..
i see some good opinions about atlas bindings here, but i like Sl's / Rome 390 boss/targas as well.
im intermediate rider, doing FR/FS + i want to try park, so i need all mountain stuff, if that matters im big boy, 14 boot size.
board im getting is Volkl Dice 62W 12/13 Völkl International | Snowboards | *Dice probably, as one helpfull guy from here recommended it, i dont know about boots but was thinking about ambush/rulers.. still dont know
so for my riding style, would atlas/SL bindings be good? how about other rome bindings that i mentioned? or maybe some other unions like contact pro?
hope you can help me some, thanks
