Rome 390 vs Burton Mission.

Hello,
Choosing some bindings for my new board, its a GNU Carbon Credit 162w. Looking at both the Rome 390 for $300aud and the Burton Mission $240aud. Have read good things about both bindings. Use will be all-mountain freeride and abit of park. Is it worth spending the extra money?

Thanks
Ben

Well call me biased, but I hate everything Burton. However if your going for mainly all mountain, I would suggest it because Rome's are better for park if I'm not mistaken.

Given those two options, I struggle for an answer. I would opt for the Romes. They are both 'middle of the flex meter' for there respective companies, and both very good bindings with a history of being fairly bullet proof.

Burton has flowed down a fair bit of tech to the missions and there lower level bindings in the last few years- you'd be basically riding the equivalent of a Cartel from a few years ago, but with slightly softer flex.

The Romes look good too though I gotta admit, are the third from top binding in the Rome stable and have a reputation for being a solid, take it all binding. They would more than likely be a better based on the fact that you've got a 162W board, so im picking that your a fairly sizable guy, and they might stand up to a bit more of a beating.

Still...ask yourself if you can do with out the extra $60 saved by buying the Missions in your wallet...

390's. Burton makes a good binding, but the 390 is just better.

Haven't used the newer versions of either, but the 390s from a few years ago are much better than the same year Missions IMO. That's all I got

Apparently I'm the only person has used both...


Missions are royal peices of shit and you will want to shoot your self. 390's feel very nice and are very smooth on the response.

Missions feel awkward around your ankle and wont get you on your heel edge without a fight. The 390's are very comfortable and very very natural when turning heel to toe. I'm completely dumbfounded why you even wanted to compare both of these bindings. I'm personally not even an advocate for the 390's either. Cobrasharks FTW

i have the 09 missions and i love them... people keep hating on the missions but i just started boarding last season and i love the missions so much that im finding it really hard to commit to buying some new bindings considering mine are old.... the only downside is that the latches would sometimes slip and loosen on their own but as long as u check em every time b4 u go down ull have no problem

I always loved my 390s but didn't like the feel of the missions. That's all personal opinion but if you can, ride them both. But my vote is 390s

life IS good.
