Been rocking 390's for two seasons now and my only complaint is that the paintjob does get pretty chipped, grant you I also use these bindings a lot and I honestly wouldn't expect them not to be chipped. Overall I've been super happy with mine, speed-wise they're great getting in and out for a traditional strap design. Getting off the lift I'm usually strapped in faster than my friends with Flows.

targas are kinda stiff for a proto. 390 boss might be a better choice from rome. although ride's customer service isn't as good as rome's, not many are, but just because one person had problems with ride capos doesn't mean you will. i've heard they are excellent.

thats one of the things I like better about burton - their ratchet release levers don't stick out like rome's, so they don't get caught on your pant and release.

If targas had better ratchets, a decent forward lean adjuster and didn't weigh so much, I'd still be riding them

I have Targas, paired with Proto and have a little story to tell:

I've got my setup a couple of weeks earlier, than I entered the forum. There were lots of posts, saying that targas are too stiff for proto, so I've decided to remove all pads from ankle strap to do it as soft as posible and detune highbacks by a couple degrees to reduce presure on the back of my boot.
With this settings i've hitted the slope on my new setup...and i hated it ankle strap was too soft for me. I didn't get enough control of the board and only after the inserts were back in ankle strap and the highbacks were on the places i was happy!

160 lbs
Proto 154
Burton Ruler 11.5!

The ankle ladder on my 2011 Targas broke this weekend. I contacted Rome warranty this morning, and they have already shipped out a replacement part. I probably stepped on the ankle ladder while in the lift line, and broke it. Excellent customer service!

Never had a problem with ratchets or the forward lean - but they are heavy as hell. They definitely aren't bindings for jumpers or parkstars.

Alright guys, so I tried something with my Bosses. I have a L/XL with size 9.5 Burton Hails which have shrinkage. I had an issue with the toe straps falling off every now and then. I was able to largely fix this problem.

I set the toe strap ladders in the back position. If you look under the base where the ladders are, there are two settings. Put it into the back position and try it out this way. You will have lengthen the toe straps though and the fit is a little different.

Worked like a charm. Only had the toe strap issue once after changing to this setting. That could have been from me not slapping the ratchet down though

Did they change something since the 09/10 model? I'm working on my third season with my Targas and have never had the hint of an issue. My wife is on 390s from the same year and she hasn't had an issue either.
