Those are both great bindings, personally I would go 2013 TT30 when it hits the shops. The new baseplate and highback drop weight while also improving the overall feel of the binding. There is no canting from Flux, however, so if you want a canted baseplate go with Rome.

I've never used a canting system, and I don't have a wide stance. I know the Rome 390 (Boss) have more customization when it comes to the degree of the highback and the TT30's come leaned forward with no option to change it. But like I said, I've only used bindings my brother or a friend have given me that are old, so I have no idea what I'd like considering the degree of leaning in the highback or the base plate if I get the 390 Boss bindings.

Now I'm leaning towards the Evo over the Proto. Does that change the type of bindings I should get? I'm thinking not...

After having a proto last season, I'm hoping to pick up an Evo or something similar for park lap days with shit snow.

Ride Rodeo

Rome 390
The bottom two are forum favorites. I never rode Rodeo but did not like Ride ratchets

I ran my proto with flux dmcc lights last year and it was a perfect matchup. Sold my Rome 390s to get the dmcc lights so I can't compare the two on the board but I can say that the proto is a light board and Rome bindings are heavy. The 390s are awesome though so they should match up well.

Go flux or Rome and you won't be disappointed. I didn't take the advice of ppl here and I bought some cartels. Huge mistake, went on a trip and the ratchet on the front cap couldn't stay locked after 7 days of riding. Burton replaced it but still i was disappointed in the durability of the supposed pro's 1st choice. I bought some flux binds and I use them on park, pow and steeps on my 10-11 EVO and Heritage. Despite having a lower highback I found them to be more responsive, they are also noticeably lighter.

Are the Boss' that much heavier than the TT30's to even notice a difference?

EDIT: I went ahead and bought the 390 Boss'. It was hard to pass them up for only $115 with free shipping and two weeks to return them.

Thing about Fluxx is they lack dampening, at least mine did. My old knees finally needed them this year

Got in on the deal with the DMCC Lights but got rid of them. Found Malavitas much more comfy and might jump on the Cartels this year.
