I emailed Rome about this last week, but still no response, so I'm gonna share it here (Also, I know theres an SDS rep that visits the site now and again )
These are my binding plates from the white/gold 390's I bought exactly a year ago (or maybe it was two years ago? )
Anyway, onto the pics:
See the hair-line cracks? They haven't reached the edges yet, but if experience has taught me anything, it's only a matter of time. This is NOT a warning not to buy 390's: they've been the most fun, most responsive and easy to control bindings I've ever used... just make sure you have 'em nice in -finger- tight before each day on the hill.
That being said; where to go for replacements?!
I want Rome boots too... Folsom I think is my choice, and experience(s) with those would be appreciated.
