problems with my rome 390/bosses

Hey folks,

Forward lean adjustment knob is always loosening up for some reason...ive tightened it using an allen key...half way through my day, ill find either one of the forward lean knobs sideways....really annoying. I've tried tightening them really tight, tightening them not so tight...nothing seems to work.

I've already went through rome warranty for parts replacement (had an entire highback replaced), im not really sure what it is at this point...

same problem here.. I think its design failure imho. they should have made it simpler with less moving parts. its annoying as fuck when snow gets in there and cant lock it back.

ya that's another issue that ive been having problems with...half the time i cant even tighten them with an allen key when im on the mtn...

everything about the binding is great...comfy straps, adjustability...but for people who ride with forward lean, its a deal breaker, i could get rome to send me more highbacks, im not really sure if it will fix the problem though.

I had that problem with my 390's the last time out. The highback adjustment know kept coming loose for whatever reason and I had to start checking it after each chair ride to make sure it was in the right position. One time I forgot, and ice built up in the slot and it wouldn't close.

Ask Rome for the OLDER style hiback adjusters that were on the 2007 and older 390s and targas.... Much more reliable.

I don't own these and only looked at pics.
Is there a way to stick a plasitc piece or something to keep in the channel so that the allen head is a secondary retainer and the item blocking the channel is actually keeping the forward lean.
I hope I explained it correctly, just a thought...

It's terrible to hear about the design flaws now inherent in Rome's current production line. I've been riding, and still ride Rome Targas since 2009 and those bindings have been rock solid. I was looking to pick up a pair of 390s this year, but with the paint issues and the forward lean adjuster constantly coming loose, I may have to look elsewhere.

i think the 09s still have the same adjuster as the current bosses/targas

I have the 2011 Rome targas and have the same issue. One of them actually broke off cause I was riding with it side ways and didnt know. I used duct tape to keep them in place as a quick, ghetto fix
