They really aren't that bad. They took a while to set up and like Leo said, adjusting the ankle strap the first time is a bitch. I had my boot on with my foot in the binding, that really helped. As for comfort, it took me several trips to really dial in the binding, but now I couldn't be happier. This past weekend I rode all day without having to try and adjust something or having to stop cause my foot hurt. My biggest complaint now is that theres no more black paint on the damn things!

If your boots are the same size as mine, I would go with union forces. The only thing the bosses have over forces is canter footbeds, while the forces have a better fit and better ratchets.

I would be lying if I said one of the main attractions for me wasn't the cant system... I've got a BAD left knee.. and it gets a lot of work done to it on the daily when I'm ripping it up on the hill...

The cant bed makes a difference. Right now I have the 2 degree set up on my sierrascope with a 15/-15 duck stance and ~20in width. At the end of the day it feels better, but still sore from thrashing all day. Theres a noticeable difference when riding my other setup for a day (cartels on a nitro, same stance). I was thinking about trying 12/-12 to try to alleviate more pain.

Just bumping this thread up as I'm having a bit of a stress out at the moment.

I placed an online order for the 2012 Rome Boss bindings the other day. Based off Romes sizing chart on their website I went with the S/M size for my 2011 Burton Ruler size 9.5 (believe they have shrinkage tech)

I then started browsing these forums and see people having nightmares with sizing and the chart may not be all that accurate.

Am I going to be completely out of luck with the S/M?

I wouldn't worry too much man, it's the middle of July so I doubt you're gonna be riding on em soon anyway. I ordered some s/m 390s for my size 9 ride anthem boots and they ended up being too small.

Shipped em back for free and got the l/xl bindings two days later. They fit perfectly.

I have size 9.5 Burton Hails with shrinkage as well. And yes, your boots have shrinkage. I went with the L/XL Rome 390 bosses. I had issues initially, but have since solved them. If I could redo my sizing choice, I would have went with the S/M.

Burton's shrinkage tech really does what it's supposed to. Just max out your settings on the bindings. Make sure the ladders for your toe straps are set in the forward position. Move the heelcup to the correct position for 9.5.

I'm actually in Australia so it's currently part of our very short snow season.

It also makes the shipping/returning thing tricky as they are coming from the USA. It is possible if I get onto it before they leave the USA it will cost me a bit of money/time but I'd rather that than bindings that don't fit.

Hi Leo

Glad you noticed this post as it was some of your other posts that really got me thinking.

I have to say I'm surprised by your answer I was pretty sure you would recommend the L/XL from your previous posts. I appreciate your honesty on the matter though.

Could I ask you to expand why you would go S/M next time rather than the L/XL considering with adjustments you got the L/XL fitting well? What do you find lacking in the L/XL.

A point I read of yours in another post was what happens if my next pair of boots don't have shrinkage which I thought was a good point.

Did you have to switch any parts i.e shorter straps etc?

I actually just received a reply from Rome email support and interestingly they recommend the L/XL to play it safe.

My S/M are currently in transit but I can still do a last minute swap it will just cost me some time/money.

Thanks again.

I have a spare pair of new and unused Rome 390 Bosses in L/XL here in Asia. If things do not work out with the ones you ordered, I could be convinced to part with them if you are in a bind.

I'm interested in getting the 390 Boss over the Flux TT30 due to the more customization the Bosses offer. I have a 8.5 Kaiju boot so I assume to go with the S/M?
