The binding was made to be a little bit forgiving. While the highback may be on the stiffer side, the rest of the biding is on the more flexible end. Their made for hard charging the park, yet still capable when it comes to the all-mountain freestyle. They're not made to be big-mountain, burly-line destroying bindings, although, I'm sure they would hold up. Unions are generally pretty durable.

I'm going to see if I can buy just the straps and the re-flex disc and put them on last years model, then I can still get some targa's or atlas's

At least until the Chargers come out. The Targas would work well, and the 390's would work alright as well. The 390's are about the same as the Force for stiffness as I understand it.

If you need something really stiff, get the targas. There are deals on rome bindings on ebay.
I disagree. While it is true that the 390s are more playful/soft than, say, the Targas, they are completely suitable for all-mountain riding including backcountry. I have happily ridden the 390s down Mount Youtei a couple of times, which is all backcountry.

budderbear thanks for the replies, I think I might just hold out for now and see if any better deals or bindings come up before the next season starts

The 390's are softer than I would want on a Heritage. If you want a good do everything Rome binding I would go with Targas. I have Diodes on my Heritage (which I love) but they are not really a do a little of everything binding. YMMV.
