Does the paint chip for all colourways of the 390s?....or just the baby blue ones?
My black targas dont seem to have this issue.

I have Burton Imperial's and Rome 390 Boss bindings as well.
One of my ratchets randomly stopped working last weekend. I'm guessing that the ice caused it to malfunction because it started working after my board/bindings were dry on the way home. I was extremely nervous about losing my board on the lift. Regardless, I am going to contact Rome and ask for new ratchets.

Thanks for the feedback. I ordered them last week so should receive them today. I found a killer deal for 2011 390's for 147 bucks or so new. That's too bad that they are having some quality control issues.
I guess I should have commented that I am looking to getting into park riding a bit more, so that's why I have strayed away from the Burton C Bindings. I did have some 2005 Cartels, but the crazy forward lean (or maybe it was the wings on the sky highback giving me this weird calf pressure point) just was a bit much for me, and I think the Size Small that I got just didn't fit my boot right.
I am a small guy with size 8 boots (Burton Imperials with shrinkage as well), so I went with the 390 S/M size.
I'll post my thoughts after I get them mounted in today. I was afraid they'd be too sloppy, but I'll never know till I try. I was planning on a new setup next year, and worst case, I'll just pickup some 2012 bindings.
Why does it always seem that after I buy something, the mixed reviews start showing up in my searches?

I just got a set of boss's and I'm still not sure I'm sold completely, but I have a lot more riding to do with these and make a final decision. I have zero issues with the ratchets, unlike jliu, I tried to get something similar by trying a lot of different things, but nothing. Seems like jliu got some bad ratchets. As everyone says, the paint chips, this is just something we have to live with, not a big deal, but kinda shitty. As for me I'm a size 9 and I went with the L/XL. My boot is almost too small I think. I adjusted the heel hoop, and found the screw and its female nut, were cross threaded Not a big deal, still worked, I'll call Rome about this soon. Then it came to dialing in the straps. They're centered and they feel good for the most part. I've only gotten three days on these things, so maybe I just need a little more fine tuning or some break in. Either way the toe straps have to be about 3/4 over the top with a little toe cap. If its not this way it will just fall off. Then on my left foot I get a pain in my ankle by the end of the day from having the ankle strap tight. I did have some pressure points on my toes, but I got rid of those. Anyway, maybe I just need to keep fine tuning these. The performance of the binding is pretty solid for what I'm doing. Lots of response, flexy, and the cant system is very very cool. Pressing is so easy.
My thing right now is that last year I rode some cartels, loved them, bought myself a pair and I never really had any comfort issues with them. Even this year, I rode the cartels this past weekend and they still feel great. I went with rome because I had other issues with the cartels and I wanted to try something new. Everyone that had cartels seemed to like rome 390, boss, and targa. So I went with boss for the cant system.
To answer your question again, no ratchet issues. Anyway, hope my long winded experience helps.

Look into the Ride Deltas if this post scares you away.
