Having owned Forces & Datas and 390's & Targas, I prefer Rome for durability, comfort, and better toestraps.

I just noticed you are putting these on a stairmaster. I had the original contacts on a scaremaster and that's been one of my favorite setups in a while.

Standard contacts will be great on that board. Or for a little less money id bet the flites will be fun on it too.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Just gonna do a little high jack of thread here. I'm looking at this same question currently basically between to sets of binders.

Union Contact Pro & Rome 390 Boss, I am currently riding last years 390's and my only complaint is that they're pretty heavy with a bit of annoyance coming from the forward lean adjustment always snapping back to zero forward lean.

Are the 390 Bosses lighter than previous iterations of 390's and what are they like compared to the weight of any Unions? (The Contact Pro's look very light)

Rome 390 Boss Or Nothing!

I'm even considering slapping those bindings on a stiff-ass T-Rice board lol.

I have been trying to find out the weight also. I emailed Rome to get a weight comparison btw the 390 boss and targa... I am deciding which to thrwo on my evo-r. I have an old pair of targas (08 or -09 cant remeber) but they are heavy as hell.. i love the targas bc i can still rip them in the park,, but i want to keep the weight down at the same time.
when i hear backk from rome ill post their reply

I checked both out, and the Rome were noticeably heavier. I picked up a capita just recently and was favoring the rome's, until now. union bindings are pretty solid since they make minor changes year to year. They feel a lot cheaper than romes, but many ppl get 100+ days on them no problem. The 2 colors on the rome 390 boss' bothers me. The assymetrical highback and nice ankle straps on the rome's are really making it hard.

They will have solid black in most stores October 3rd. I don't like the split color much either

Get the Unions... then end up demoing your buddy's Rome 390 bosses... Let the buyer's remorse follow.
