How to tell Rome Targa inserts apart?

So I recently bought a new set of '12 Rome Targas. The inserts that were in the bindings and the second set that were in the box all have the same # on them 402072.

How do you tell the medium inserts from the stiff? They look the same and feel the same.

Figured I'd ask here before sending Rome an email.

Pretty sure they say it on them in bubbled out lettering.

Nope... other than 2 being marked with L and 2 being marked R they look the same.

Doesn't say anything on the back.

No pad for soft. Medium inserts for Medium and Stiff inserts for more response.

PF Adjust Ankle Strap
3 flex options in one strap via removable 45D and 65D EVA pads: soft, medium and supportive

I just sent an email to Rome.

Hope these things ride like butter...cause I'm less than impressed so far. They are sending me new highbacks as the bindings came with paint chipping on the highbacks new out of the box

I heard that chipped binding paint gives you +2 on rails. You should just keep those ones. It appears that fault is quite common on the romes at the moment, shame that such a nice binding has such a simple fault, that they must know about (due to the number of warranty issues they must have had over it) and haven't managed to rectify.

Ya I too can't tell the difference between the inserts.

I have some paint chipping where you'd expect it(where the highback rotates) and I can tell if you ding 'em the paint is gonna start flaking off.

Other than the paint though everything feels solid while handling them and all the adjustments the bindings allow is very nice. I wish it would snow already so I can get out there and try them.

When I reached out to them about it they said they hadn't seen it in their testing of this years models and were surprised. Too their credit they have been really good to deal with.

While not a performance impacting issue... its a shame they cant figure out something as simple as paint.
