Default New bindings? Rome 390's?

Okay I am going into my 3rd season of snowboarding and I am looking to possibly get some new bindings. I am mainly a freestyle/park/all-mountain rider and I ride a 09 DC PBJ with size 12 32 Prospect 2011 boots. I currently have 09 Burton Mission bindings and have been looking at some Rome 390 Boss bindings but not sure if I want to drop $150 on new bindings right now (although that is a steal of a price). If I do decide to purchase them, what difference will it make? Is it worth buying new bindings? Also, advantage to getting the bosses or not?

Boss' come with canting. an angled peice of foam in your bindings that helps line up your legs with your hips. I think that is the only diff between the two. A lot of people love canting. i am mixed on it. The boss comes with a flat footbed as well, good to buy if you are unsure of canting as you can just have it normal as well. some bindings come only with canting.

Also adding onto what Justin said the 390's have a different front strap that has a x grip thing that pulls around your boot toe. I don't own any, but I have been thinking about getting a pair to.

Shorelineoftahoe has a few. If you cant find your color/size then Solsticesupply has a better selection for $125. Skirack has the Red at $138, the cheapest I've seen for that color.

Google Shopping, sort by lowest to highest $.
