Rome 390 Boss Paint Finish Sucks?

Hey guys,

I know this is superficial but I just got a pair of Rome 390 boss bindings in the white/blue color scheme and after 4 hours of easy shredding, they are all chipped up....wtf!? Has anyone had this issue?

I know this is bound to happen down the road, but this chipped up after 4 hours or easy riding?

No one is crying. They are amazing bindings and I would not use any other ...I was just curious as I read in another post that Rome was pulling some of their bindings from shops because of this issue of paint peeling and chippin off.

I am sorry my post brought back bad memories for you and your feelings got hurt.

Rome should probably pull their bindings for other reasons. Don't cry cause you got mocked for being superficial.

Mine has some minor chips and hell, I got a little tear in the right ankle strap's cushion. I can care less. They have an excellent warranty if I need to use it. Until then, I'm going to enjoy the heck out of my chipped, slightly torn, awesome pair of bindings.

Rome 390 Boss = super sick

Try putting your pants over the bindings. That might help with the paint chips a little
