Is the Rome 390 boss worth the weight?

I was gonna buy a pair I found on sale but have heard mixed feelings about the bindings. Any thoughts about the binding would help

It's worth it for me. I can't say if it is worth it for you or not. But honestly, they're not THAT heavy.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

They are not really that heavy.. I would say get the 2014 model over the previous models. They fixed/improved alot of things between 13 and 14.

Fixed the lean adjustor
Better toe strap - I ride a 2013 boss but have 2014 toe straps now night and day difference in durability
They are lighter
The can't bed is one piece instead of two with better more durable padding.
Paint no longer chips.
Better ankle strap although my 2013 is hella comfy

Bottom line 2014.. oh and their customer service is fantastic!

I thought my 13s were pretty light for an all mountain binding. Not one of the lightest, but on the lighter end.
