They are complete junk, you should just let me buy them.
Honestly, the 2008 390's, in my opinion, we're some of the best bindings ever made. I've actually been looking for them for quite some time. They are flexible, but you can still lay down some nice carves. Essentially perfect for all mountain riding, they don't come with any of the bullshit "technology" that's out all the newer bindings. All these fancy foams, highbacks, straps, ratchets, etc are a joke. I hate to sound like an old timer, but the older stuff is a lot better than the new equipment lately. Companies try to fix what isn't broken.
