Not sure what to do

So I just got my rome 390 boss bindings in the mail today. I have size 9.5 thirtytwo binary boa boots and with the recommendation of some people on here i went with the medium size bindings. Well I adjusted the toe strap to be as lose and it can go and the ratchet is still on the side of my toe to where it digs in. So what I am wondering if I should go up to the large bindings or just deal with the medium? Also I have a rome reverb rocker 151, so if i did exchange my my medium bindings for large then would they be to big for my board?

I had this same problem with my Rome 390 BOSS bindings as well, except I have size 8 boots (size medium binding). I think it has more to do with the shape of your boot. Didn't happen to my older pair of Rome 390's.

So did you move up to the large? or just stay with the medium and it didn't end up being to much of a problem?

I rode them for a year and it wasn't a HUGE problem... but it was annoying and slightly uncomfortable (and occasionally the toestrap would slip off) and I ended up selling off the bindings sadly. With only size 8 boots, I don't think moving up to a large would have worked (similarly I'm not sure moving up to a large will solve your problem).

I'm not sure if I should keep the medium or move up to the large or just return them and get different bindings.

Yea I don't know... maybe email photos to Rome and see what they think? I just wanted you to know that you are not alone with this problem.

Good luck!

What bindings did you end up getting to replace the 390 boss, I'm asking because I figure you went for a similar style of binding which is what I want.

I picked up a pair of Burton CO2 that were on sale, but I wouldn't quite call that the same style of bindings (I like them though). I currently reading up about Flux bindings but I don't really know much about them firsthand yet (except all the hype about the DMCC lights).

I am looking at the flux bindings but am not sure which to get. I am pretty sure I will be returning the 390 boss unless the website I purchased from won't let me.

DMCC Light>390>C02

I have all three of these bindings. The C02 are too stiff for my liking, I used them for my boardercross board. The 390's and DMCC Light's are both really comfortable, but the DMCC light offers a bit more support without being too stiff and obviously they are much lighter.
