I'm on the fence about purchasing these bindings.

Why do people praise these bindings with all these issues? At least they have good customer service but I wouldnt feel too confident with these...

Decision decisions..

Because the vast majority of people don't have problems with them, taking 2 seconds to make sure you straps are locked in is pretty simple.

People enjoying non-defective products are not looking for threads like these. Consider how many are having problems vs how many they sell. All in all it does sound dangerous. My brother just got some 390 bosses but have yet to really test them out. Just a few blacks on some local hills. Mountains soon .

I just bought Targas. Anyone get problems with those?

I've had zero issues with mine. If you are concerned just wait a year. Next years model (2014) changes out the straps/ratchets, mills the base, and updates the highback adjustor. Which are a few of the complaints.

I've had a fairly bad experience with Rome's customer service/warranty also. The simplified version is: I put in a warranty ticket for a broken ankle strap in December and it basically took 35 days to get a replacement to me. In waiting for it to arrive I ended up having to to leave for my trip without ridable bindings, despite having made the enquiry a month before my trip and with no Rome retailer in the small resort, had to buy a whole new pair of bindings to be able to ride. Absolutely shafted by Rome

That wasn't one of the problems, unless you're suggesting stopping after every single jump or feature (ie 5-10 times a run) to check my bindings.

For example, with me, it was not the side that I locked down on, it was the static side that isn't suppose to open up unless you're adjusting the length of the strap. That side, being completely locked down, would still pop open upon landing. I never had a problem unless I was in the air for something, when I would land, occasionally that static side would pop open upon impact. A few times, one stands out the most, this could have put me in serious risk if I didn't notice/feel it before I went to hit another jump or feature.

I absolutely love the bindings otherwise. So far having had my straps replaced I've had 0 issues. I think they may have had a bad batch or batches where certain tolerances weren't met, thus making the latch not as secure as it should be upon impacts. I don't think the issue is widespread, but it certainly exists from the people on and off this thread who have said they've had the same problems. Also, may some people could have the same issues but they don't typically leave the ground while snowboarding? I don't know.

As for the high back issue or any other issue, I haven't had those.
