Opinion of 2011/12 Rome Arsenal, please!

Hey, i just ordered a pair of Arsenals from Rome, and was wondering what people thought about them.

If you have tried them, how do you like them?

I couldnt find any reviews online.


Im kinda new to snowboarding, this'll be my 2nd season, only went about, 6 times last season.

I kinda went on a whim and bought them. The description was so convincing.

Was this a good buy?


Thanks.

From my expierence you cant go wrong with anything from Rome. I have two pairs of 390's and never see myself using any other brand. And their customer service is unmatched. Great choice!

I bought the Arsenals. Stuck them on my Skate Banana (probably a mental decision as they're pretty stiff) and they seem fine. No bindings have ever made me go WOW (except for flux for how comfortable they are) I've tried the Targas and 390's and own Burton Cartels too. The Cartels are probably my favourite.... maybe thats just cause I'm used to them - and none are as comfy as The Flux TT30s I tried! But for response and comfort The Arsenals seem more than fine!

If it's a real goose, is it propaganda?

Why risk trying something new, when you know what you like?

It can go both ways



Thanks, for all the positive feedback, really anxiously waiting for them to be sent out, as they are 2012s and wont be shipped until the 14th

Arsenal is a very good binding. It's on the stiff side of things with lots of support - so it's great for freeriding.
