Never used the Romes, but my friend has the NXT FS bindings and I thought they were kinda clunky weight wise.

Union Bindings are the lightest on the market.


That looks like next years Force MC.

I have last years NXT AT bindngs and this years 390s and the weight difference is negligable. The new FLOW bindings are now very comparable in weight to strap-ins especially if the FLOW has the cut-away power strap like the NXT AT and FS.

does a small difference in binding weight really matter?

Considering weight now. What are the lightest bindings for $150 and under? For use with freeriding.

i wouldnt really worry about weight. you should be able to get some union forces for around $100 and they are great freeride bindings.
