The Rome Strut binding is a good binding at a good price. It’s also the stiffest binding in their line. This is a great choice for women who like good edge to edge transitioning without much effort or need to bend a stiff snowboard. The one thing we like about the Strut is the ankle strap is solid and thick except for the very middle. This minimizes pressure points and helps improve response.
The 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 &2014 Rome Struts have not changed much. The design and ride is practically the same so look for a deal. It’s definitely time for an overhaul like many of the men’s bindings received. The ride is very similar. If you like to ride an aggressive/stiff board the Rome Strut should be considered along with Burton and Union as a great freeride to all mountain binding for stiff to mid flexing boards. They do a good job.
