^^That's the very first time I've ever heard of anyone complanning about Rome's CS! I've dealt with John in their customer service department a couple times this year for my Targas and have had absolutely zero complaints. They even replaced a set of mounting disks and hardware that I lost FOR FREE!!!!
As for the binding quality, it's a lot better than most I've ridden in the past few years, and I beat the living HELL out of my bindings. I just bent the mounting tab on one of the toe ratchets on a bad landing and got the ratchet assembly replaced very quickly through John. The paint is chipping pretty bad on the right foot chassis and a bit on the highback, but I couldn't care less. It's purely visual, so who gives a crap?
Overall, HUGE props to Rome's CS so far this season. I'll definitely be riding Rome products in the future.
