Default How much to bindings change from season to season?

I recently got new boots, and my old bindings are too large. I was hunting around the store and tried my boots in some Rome 390s, and they fit great, and I've never really heard anything bad about the 390s. They have a pair from last season for $114, or the new ones are $210. My question is how much do bindings really change from season to season? Is it worth it to just go for the new model since I'll probably be using them for 3-4 years?

Also, I ride an 06/07 Burton Air 153, and Ride Orion boots. I ride mostly mountain, with some park runs thrown in there but nothing too crazy, and i thoroughly enjoy goofing around and buttering.


Thanks,
Anthony

I think it depends... On my Rome Targa's, the only difference I think (besides the graphics) is that added the autostrap to the toe strap as well. So you get 2 autostraps vs one...

It depends on the year. Sometimes it's just colors, while other times it's small things like ratchets or padding, while other times it's major changes like baseplates, highbacks, etc...

I bought last season's 390 this year, and it seems to be almost identical to this season's. The only thing I see missing is the little rubber/elastic strap that pulls the anklestrap back when you unstrap.

They made the 390 ankles strap ridiculously soft. It feels like a huge gummy worm.

Thanks everybody, I haven't decided on which yet because I'm not all that syked about the white/bronze color on the ones from last season. I did notice the extra padding, but I doubt they're different enough for me to notice

I know the ones you're talking about. They look ok online, but pretty ugly in real life. I got the black with lime green accents. Wouldn't be my top choice, but for the sale price I couldn't complain.
