Will the 390s be too flexible for me?

I just went to the shop to check out bindings for this season. I was pretty much set on buying this years 390 Boss bindings but after talking to one of the workers he suggested the Arsenals instead. He thinks the 390s will be too soft for me. I'm about 220 pounds and these bindings will be going on my park board. I've used the Burton Customs on this board for a couple years which are pretty flexible and they worked pretty well for me. I'm not sure if the 390s are more flexible than the Customs or not. But based on the fact that I liked the Customs and they worked well, does it seem like the 390s will be just as good if not better? Just trying to flex the Arsenals with my hands made me think they are on the overly stiff side but it's hard for me to tell without riding them.

Any advice is appreciated.
