Or maybe Rome is the new Venice, which is the new Atlantis, and Atlantis has floated to the top of the sea because of global warming and the economy?

I don't think I've ever been this confused before.

ckang008 Seems like gear nowadays are nor made to last. Sure they are still functional and are great bindings currently. If no one complains about paint chipping off, Rome probably won't even know this is an existing issue.

I for one love Rome gear. Their targa bindings 2009 have serve me well unlike burton ripped straps after one day use

Wow that's a lot of wear. How many days is that after?

Your argument is void, you are wrong. Have a cupcake.

I don't really see how people can be upset and complain about a paintchipping defect. I mean half the time you're strapped in so your bindings are covered by your feet. The other half they're covered in snow. So the only time you see it is when you're not snowboarding. Just hide your bindings and don't look.
Oh I'm not concerned one bit. I bought them for the tech, not the paint. As long as they rock the casbah, I'll be happy. Plus the Evo's top graphic will steal all the focus anyways.

For the record I was waiting for 2012 Targas but found a deal on some 2011 390 Boss and will be buying those. Hell, I may still pick the Targas up next season. I'm glad I know about the paint issue but after all the research I've done I'm still going with Rome. Thanks.
can I have the site?? Looking for some boss' too. :S
