Rome/Flux new bindings

I'm looking for new bindings, currently on 08 Missions now. A little stiff and the toe strap isn't the greatest. Looking to graduate to a better binding. I do groomers and jumps, just want something with more flex and comfortable for all mountain.

Reviews are great for Rome 390 Boss, but i've read a few where the straps will randomly pop off. I'm sure the experience is different for everyone though. I've also been looking at the Flux, can't really tell from the videos though, they all say good for all mountain.

honestly, you wouldn't go wrong either way, but I'm into supporting new/small companies in hopes they become more popular. rome is pretty well known in my area.

I thought the Boss's were comparable to the rk30's, which are what I ride. Either way you go you will get a great pair of bindings.
Just keep in mind that these are softer bindings, and won't do too well in deep powder. I learned that one the hard way...

My new favorite bindings are 2012 Raiden Zeros.

Thegoodride seems to place them closer to the TT30's, but I've never specifically heard from anyone who has experience with all 3...

I have. They felt more like right in between TT30's and DS45's.

Sounds like right around the RK30's then, if thegoodride's rating system is anything to go by.

By That I would say no then.

RK 30's are softer than both of those...

They were stiffer in the base than TT30's with more of the TT30 highback feel. Not as stiff as SF45's though.
