You do realize you can order them off the internet, get free shipping and no tax....

Would you recommend getting them off the internet? And I don't think I could. I bought the two pairs, can get a full refund on one of the bindings I believe, and if I choose to return the other, get store credit

Practically all the big snowboard retailer websites have CRAZYFISH return policies. Like as in you can take both bindings out of the box, ride them, sort of thrash them, then put one back in the box and send it back for a full refund minus shipping.

The only thing you typically shouldn't buy off the internet is boots, because they have a very specific fit and size that can vary. Bindings however, are relatively universal.

Anyways, it's a solid option if you want to choose it. I've bought 2010 Rome 390's and Rome Targas of the internet for huge savings off MSRP, and have been really happy with both.

I will most Likely have to pay the border tax. I live in Canada. But like I said, the store won't give me a full refund. I will know for next time. I've heard Rome has great customer service

Ah sorry, didn't know you lived in Canada. I know shipping anything over the border can be a pain in the ass with all the customs, taxes, and whatnot.

Unfortunately. Again, I apologize for annoying you guys with all these questions, but I have many mixed feelings. With my old boots, the 390s feel much better. If I could find the canted foot beds for the 390s, that would be pretty sweet. The contrabands already have them, and are slightly bigger, which fit my new boots better. Would the Lashed have good compatibility with the 390s? Have you guys heard anything?

the contrabands are nice bindings i dont know why everyone is telling you to get rid of what you already have. while the contrabands are tough to set up i recommend setting them up yourself because the shop (well the one i went to) can mess them up and that just means doing it yourself anyways (i only had them set them up because it was free with a bindings purchase) i asked for 12 duck footed and the give me 9 and mess up the v strap so it wasnt tight to the boot. but now that it is all set up to my liking they are great couldnt ask for much better. and with your concerns of fit all bindings are completely adjustable to length and stuff like that straps are adjustable too. if your boots arent fitting in the bindings then the bindings are the wrong size for your boot assuming that your bindings are fully pushed to their limits in size
