What store?

Starter the contrabands are nice bindings i dont know why everyone is telling you to get rid of what you already have. while the contrabands are tough to set up i recommend setting them up yourself because the shop (well the one i went to) can mess them up and that just means doing it yourself anyways (i only had them set them up because it was free with a bindings purchase) i asked for 12 duck footed and the give me 9 and mess up the v strap so it wasnt tight to the boot. but now that it is all set up to my liking they are great couldnt ask for much better. and with your concerns of fit all bindings are completely adjustable to length and stuff like that straps are adjustable too. if your boots arent fitting in the bindings then the bindings are the wrong size for your boot assuming that your bindings are fully pushed to their limits in size

Unfortunately. Again, I apologize for annoying you guys with all these questions, but I have many mixed feelings. With my old boots, the 390s feel much better. If I could find the canted foot beds for the 390s, that would be pretty sweet. The contrabands already have them, and are slightly bigger, which fit my new boots better. Would the Lashed have good compatibility with the 390s? Have you guys heard anything?

The only thing you typically shouldn't buy off the internet is boots, because they have a very specific fit and size that can vary. Bindings however, are relatively universal.

Anyways, it's a solid option if you want to choose it. I've bought 2010 Rome 390's and Rome Targas of the internet for huge savings off MSRP, and have been really happy with both.

Would you recommend getting them off the internet? And I don't think I could. I bought the two pairs, can get a full refund on one of the bindings I believe, and if I choose to return the other, get store credit

Alban I saw the video, but my boots toe is pretty tall, making it tough to center the strap. With my old pair of boots (Ride Haze), the 390s feel much much better. With my new ones, they are pretty darn big, and are not as padded, which makes it tough to notice much of a difference. Contrabands have more space for my foot, therefore making the binding seem to fit slightly better. Is there any way I can make the 390s slightly wider/ slightly more room width wise?
