Very good company that supports their customers.
That's what I have come to understand about them. I have also heard that the same cannot be said for Salomon. Prolly reason enough to go with Rome.

It's going to be used for all mountain, but leaning more toward park side. However, i hear the chiefs kill it in the park as well.

dylanmcnamara I'm more or less looking for opinions from people who have some experience with these bindings. I've read pretty much every review for each i could find, including angry snowboarder, and both bindings get great reviews.

Gdog42 Check out The Good Ride's reviews of both bindings and see which suits your needs the most. For more detail on each go to "In Depth Review" on the pages.

If you still can't decide, go for whichever one looks better with your setup, or just whichever one you like the look of more!
You never know, you might just be able to pick up some nice ladies if you look good on that board!
It works for guys with flashy cars, why not for you?

freshy Then get the Romes since they are a snowboard company, not a skiing company making snowboard gear.

Or just flip a coin.

Right now I have a pair of Ride boots and a pair of Union DLX bindings, and although they do fit, they don't fit well together. One of the reasons I'm getting a pair of ThirtyTwo boots is to solve this problem.

If you can't decide between 2 or more certain bindings, you should consider which will fit best with your boots, if you haven't already. That's usually a good deciding factor.
They're nikes. I have tried both on with my boots and they both fit just fine, just trying to see if someone can sway me one way or another because from what i've been reading they're both solid bindings
