I love it when brands continue to advance and refine their products. Rome has made 4 notable refinements this year to their top shelf bindings.

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.

Those new Rome buckles are actually what I was sent for replacements last year. I stated they were better than the stock ones. Glad Rome made that standard.

The new forward lean adjust looks solid. Looks like Rome has been listening and fixed the major complaints about their bindings.

Hopefully, the only thing left to complain about is the paint haha.

I might have to hop back on some Romes now.

Btw, that orange/black colorway for the boss looks badass.

Wiredsport, what are your thoughts on the highback flex and the stiffness/softness of the ankle straps?

Whoops, I forgot to mention that the ankle strap has been beefed up and recontoured. It looks and feels AMAZING (and I liked the old one). The highbacks are largely unchanged.

For summer shredding Landyachtz has introduced a longboard called the Rotor specifically set up for duck stance.

Wow really diggin the new 390's. They seemed to have fixed all the old issues: ratchets and highback lean adjustors. Oh well my 390s are brand new so I'll just soldier up for a few years.
