Default Not sure on binding size

Ok first I am going to say this is my last thread for a while(hopefully). Well anyways I got my rome 390 boss bindings today and after trying them on with my boots for a bit I decided they are terribly uncomfortable and I need to return them. Well I have the medium size and size 9.5 thirtytwo binary boa boots and the front strap like digs into the side of the boot hurting my toes. I heard this was a common problem so decided not to just move to the large. Well now I decided I will either get the flux tt30 or flux dmcc light. Now I am unsure what size to get. Medium again because it might of just been the bindings? or large because 9.5 is really on the edge and needs a bigger binding? Also large will not be to big for my rome reverb rocker 151, correct?

Hey EatMyTracers,

Sorry to hear about the bindings being uncomfortable man. Just be sure, did you fully adjust them in terms of heel hoop sizing, strap length, and toe ladder location? From what we gather you picked up a pair of S/M bindings. They'll need to be maxed out for a pair of size 9.5 Thirtytwo boots for sure, since they tend to be a little bigger and bulkier from what we've heard.

You'd have an easier time with a pair of L/XL bindings, since you can adjust them down and there shouldn't be any sort of pressure points.

L/XL's will fit great on your Reverb as well.

Hope that helps a bit and maybe saves you from dealing with returning your binders. Any other questions let us know.

9.5 Boots is such a fucking bitch with 390s. I tried s/m, too small. l/xl fits but the heel loop has to be adjusted all the way in and the ladders on the toe strap adjusted all the way down, and I mean to the very last plastic rib thing on the strap. Ankle strap no issues.

Once adjusted the binding fits excellently, very comfortable, right amount of flex for what I want and I love it. But goddamn it some nagging OCD part of my brain is always thinking to itself "fuck, why do my ladders have to be adjusted down so far??" And I know it's trivial but all that unused ladder strap just flopping around pisses me off. Of course once riding I forget about all this shit and the bindings are awesome.

I wish rome would come out with a true medium binding. There's nothing wrong with the bindings I have. They fit fine and work fine and I understand what I am writing could be called rediculous, but you have to admit that a true medium or m/l size would eliminate a lot or even all of this size issue bullshit.

Do you have the toe strap in the forward or the back position?

I didn't know there were multiple positions. I don't have the bindings w/ me (at work) but I don't remember seeing a place to get at a bolt or anything on the front strap or ladder (2011-2012 model). I'll check again this evening though. If I can move the to strap mounting position back that would be awesome, thanks.

That makes more sense. 390's and Targas are so adjustable that S/M and L/XL seem like perfectly acceptable sizes.

As for the OP, 9.5 makes more sense to me in L/XL bindings, than S/M. If you don't mind sticking with Rome, definitely size up.

So do you guys think with any bindings I should move up to a large? And I would stay with the 390 boss but I heard other people having this issue even with smaller boots to a bigger binding. From what I have gathered I think it is just a boot problem. Well I am going to go for flux bindings I think, anyone know how the tt30 is? I am also considering the flux dmcc light but those cost a lot more and I already have heard how great they are so I don't need any opinions on these, only the tt30.

Anyone have any comments about the flux tt30? I am pretty sure I am going to be picking those up in a large.

I disagree with everyone here and I would go with mediums. I have 9.5 boots and I have to tighten everything down all the way on larges and still don't get a great fit. With mediums I have everything on the middle settings and it fits great. This has been my experience with Burton, Rome, and Flux.

Well I am going to get the flux tt30 from my local board shop and try both the medium and large with my boots and see what fits better. Also I don't know how you have your 9.5 boots in medium bindings with everything adjusted to a middle setting. With mine I had the straps maxed out and they barley fit.
