Binding Decision

I just picked up on a 2008 Rome Agent (156). I am trying to decide on bindings, also would be 07/08 if possible. My choices are:

Rome 390
Burton Mission
Burton Cartels

I havent picked up the boots, but thinking im going to go with the thirtytwo - lashed boot.

What do you think?

Couple of my mates have burton missions and they've all broken or fallen apart.
I have cartels and they're starting to break in places.
Burton bindings just dont seem to have the durability needed.

Ive never tried Rome but have heard only good things about the 390's so I'd try that.

Though toe caps are mighty comfortable!

I have only had the chance to try the Burton Missions and LOVED them! But Im gonna buy a pair of Cartels this season. I would go with Burton only because I havent had a chance to try the others or even heard anything about them.

Rome toe straps can go on like the Burton toe caps, but work better, and are less bulky.

I would suggest the 390's .. you will love them. I have destroyed many a binding and so far the 390 is my favorite. got a new pair just yesterday.
