Super comfortable, overly configurable, pretty durable and hella stylish.

Sorry, but I'm not going to be following any of your advice in the near future.

Anyone else have opinions on the current year 390 vs next year's 390 Boss? Worth the additional costs?

I'm not too sure anyone in North America will have a pair of 390 Boss's as these are 2011 model bindings. However, based on Rome's catalog, the only differences will be stiffer highbacks, canted footbeds and something about their baseplates. Again, IMO, if you can get the current year 390s for a steal, I wouldn't spend the extra money on the 2011 model.

I've ridden the 390 bosses on both the Agent Rocker and Artifact Rocker for next year. The current 390's don't even hold a candle to these things. Hands down the best binding I've been on in years. I rode 390's for the first few years they came out then Rome decided to go all retarded and make them softer and cheaper. The new 390 bosses strap has different gel in it making them a little more stiffer and suited to all mountain riding, the highback is different and not as soft, and the canted bed is what everyone should be riding in my opinion.

That should sum up what you need to know. I'm getting 2 pairs of these in a few months.

Wider stance it aligns the knees to be in correct position with the hips. For myself since I don't ride gangster wide stances it gives more lift on the outside of my feet allowing for better power transition to my nose and tail for pop.

When I switched to reverse camber my knee issues decreased a lot. I do know that canting the bed will help out a bit with alignment and fix things a bit.

Ya know, I hadn't thought about that until you mentioned it, but I have noticed that I don't have nearly as many knee issues when riding my Evo-R as when I'm riding my Heritage.

I want to say like 220ish is what I was told.

Yeah I started noticing after I fully switched to riding reverse that my knees didn't swell up after a typical day in the park and I could extend my riding a few more hours if I wanted to.
