Default Rome 390s or Aresnals for a beginner w/ a slash

Hi

I just picked up a Rome 158 slash for a good price i think ($190 shipped) and now need a pair of bindings. I am thing either last years rome arsenals for $79 or last years 390s for $95. Not really much of difference in price and i know the 390 are supposed to be better in general but i think i remember someone suggesting the arsenals over the 390s for a beginner. So which one would be best for a beginner who is going to just ride the slopes and try to progress this season.(not any park this season probably. If you have any other suggestions on bindings let me know. Thanks

Get the 390's. They will be fine outside of the park, just make sure you get the l/xl which are hard to find.

390 is a soft freestyle binding. Arsenal is a stiff freeride binding.

I found my Arsenals about 1/2 the cost of the 390's. I was a noob so I figured I'd go with the cheaper ones. I'm not disappointed with Arsenals at all and I saved money toward my better board.

Differences between 09 390 and 09 Arsenal:

Toe Strap: 390 - Conformist.3 (Conformist.2 on 08 390), Arsenal - Conformist.1
Autostrap: 390 - yes (not on 08 390), Arsenal - no
Heel Hoop: 390 - Underwrap.2, Arsenal - Underwrap
Highback: 390 - soft, Arsenal - stiff, more aggressive forward lean
Ankle Strap: 390 - PF Contour (PF.2 on 08 390), Arsenal - PF.1
