tekniq33 I made my decision for the 390 Boss by picking up some use Ride CAD's for cheap. Now I don't need a stiff binding so 390 Boss will be on my Agent Rocker and possibly the Evo as well

Customer service just told me that the Targa highbacks are wayyyy stiffer than the boss. lol if that means much

The only differences I see are the straps and highbacks. But BurtonAvenger also said the 390 Boss strap and highback seem stiffer than the regular 390. So the Boss might be a good in between. Also heard the 390 ankle strap is a bit more comfy than the Targa. Might be a nice mix of the Targa and regular 390.

It seems that if you take the ankle pad out of the targa you basiclly have the 390 (with a diff highback)
So you can hit up the park with the flex of the 390 and still get more stiffness with an insert if you need it..

look at your foot when strapped into your bindings...is it straight?
