it's interesting you post this because I just pulled the trigger on these bindings from dogfunk as they were 20% off and I was looking at the -$200 range.
I was going to get the 390 bosses for $183 but tactics had it mis-stocked on the site...then I was thinking about the regular 390's for around $170...but I already have some 07/08 390's and had been hearing a few bad things about the newer 390s...I knew they were probably legit but I've always been curious about technine bindings and especially now that they have that scrub hook
I've searched everywhere and the only review I could find is prob one that you've seen too from dogfunk:
these bindings are pretty solid. i had an older pair of team bindings and these ones never had any of the minor problems i've had with previous technines. the adjustable straps have not come loose once and seem pretty durable. i've had little more than 15 days with these and all is going great. i love the scrub hook, my presses and butters have improved immediately. i really like the simple look too, nothing flashy or bright. the only reason they don't get 5 stars is because they took a little while longer to break in then i would have liked. that aside super good buy.
I've heard a lot of bad things about technine bindings (heavy, fall apart, etc) and I've definitely seen some live competitions where technine team rider's bindings just break on them and they have to ghetto-rig them to make it through the comp....so yeah I'm a little sketched, but that guy's review seemed to suggest these will be better
I'll post a review when I get mine...but I opted for the free shipping so I probably won't get them for another 10 days or so
