They said that Rome handled the warranties directly and pointed me towards the warrant registration page. I live on a small island, so dont have a local store and the resort I was in didn't have a Rome stockist. So on my first morning I was faced with a choice of buy whatever binding I could get my hands on or not snowboard.

Yeah I appreciate the offer, though I'm based in Europe not the US (which I'm sure is a factor). And I'm already $320(235eur) out of pocket so the moment has kinda passed anyway

Unless you happen to need a set of Cartels with 5 days on them..? Haha

Did you get a chance to handle the bindings? Is there a noticeable difference in weight?

The size adjust is now an infinite position slider rather than the older 3 position holes. This is awesome for fine tuning size. The Yes I Cant canted footbeds are now all one piece. The base has been milled out for weight savings and allows the footbed to contact the board for better shock absorbtion and contact feel. The relaease on the ratchets is reduced in size and length so accidental actuations will be lessened. The forward lean on the 390 series has been improved for easier use and lighter weight. All of the bindings are ~20% lighter and all still carry Rome's 2 year warranty.

It is immediately noticable. There was a lot of material removed from the base.

When will these start showing up for purchase? Just bought an Arbor Coda and was gonna grab some 2013 Rome's for it but depending on price maybe I'll just hold out a while.

Would you mind PM'ing me what you think the price might be? I won't hold you to it but it will allow me to decide if I order some 2013's now or wait for the new batch. Thanks!
