390s vs. TT30s

So im looking for some new bindings for this season.
Intermediate rider looking to have downrails and 30+ foot kickers on lock this season.

6' 190lbs
09 burton blunt
70% park
25% jumps
5% pow runs.... i ride at mt high here in so cal

Both being around the same price I am stumped. I like the padding I hear about on the 390s for when i case those jumps but also want a light comfortable binding to jib everything on in the tt30s....
Any advice or suggestions???? thank you

I was in the same dilemma myself for at least a week, and I finally bought the 390 Boss' because I found them online for only $115 with free shipping. I did go check out the TT30's in a local shop, but no one had the 390 Boss' to compare them to. The TT30's are definitely light with a low highback. I was leaning towards the 390 Boss' anyways because there is more customization and better dampening, which I wanted for jumping. And I'd go with the Boss' instead of just the normal 390's, might as well for a mere $10 or $15. I assume you know the Boss' have the Yes I Cant system, which it ever more customization.

yes ive read up on both, But to be honest im not too concerned on the canting system. No binding i have so far has had canting and so many bindings are still coming out without this... I just feel it cant be THAT big of a deal.. idk

And the only thing that is pulling me away from the flux is the padding. I dont wanna case a jump hard and have bolts through my legs and back...
then again if i case it hard enough it wont much matter which bindings i have

My personal choice would be the 390's. They're more comfortable, and the ratchets are smoother and quicker when tightening. The dampening on flux suck too, I always find mine are really hard on my feet.

They have very different feels but that comes down to personal preference. Best way to find out is to try them.

I love Flux. The TT30s are my favorite all-around binding. The damping isn't great, but then again, I primarily ride Never Summer boards so binding damping doesn't really matter to me.

As for jumps, don't worry too much you're in Socal, they don't actually get any bigger than 30ft. The flex pattern on the TT30's probably matches better with your Blunt. That's probably what I'd go with for that deck.

Worse I feel. I rode Contacts for a couple seasons. They aren't terrible on noodles but there are better for the money. Still go for TT30's.

Really? Hmm I've been hearing and reading good things about them... I like that they have more padding underfoot than the tt30s...

Also I found them on geartrade for like 70 bucks in really nice condition

Will I notice more padding with the contacts?

Yeah you'll notice the padding, and severely dimished performance too though.

If you're worried about dampening look into either Raiden Zero's or Pushers. Airbags are THE BEST thing on the market for shock.
