Default buy 08 or 09

my old bindings are starting to fall apart, so i've been looking to buy a new pair. i do a good amount of mountain riding and park depending on who i'm out there with (probably a tad more mountain), and i want to get to rome 390's. There is an enormous price drop from 2008 to 2009. so i was wondering if anyone knows if there are any drastic changes from the previous gen bindings. and if there is, is it worth the 100 dollars jump in price. thank you for you time.

I always buy last-season gear. 1 season isn't enough to warrant a 25% price difference.

The technology doesn't usually change. Companies just give new names to the same old stuff so they can market it as "new".

No major changes, get the older model.

I do have a little gripe about mine though, the inside part of the ankle strap isn't long enough so I have to make a bit of an effort to strap in my ankles.

I heard that the highback is softened up some on the 09 model, so if that's actually the case (I'm not certain), then the 08 might be slightly better suited for you anyway since you do more all-mountain riding.

I'd go with the '08s. There really aren't any major differences between the two models like everyone else said. You could get some great deals and certain places. I got 08 bindings for 50% off
