*Oh I'm also using 2012 Burton Imperials.
I'm 5'9" 155 lbs, size 8 boot, ride in Tahoe. I've ridden the 2009 390, 2011 390 Boss... The Bosses are stiffer than my older 390's (which were kind of soft in my opinion... although not quite as flexy as the Burton P1s) and are pretty good if you are a mix of freestyle and freeride.
For pure freeride, I wish the Bosses were a tad bit stiffer and would go for the Targas - which has straps that can be adjusted to be stiffer/softer. I now am riding Burton CO2 which are stiffer I prefer to my 390 BOSS.
Other bindings I have ridden are Burton C60, Burton P1, Ride CAD, Ride SPI, Forum Republic.
