Hi,

just wanted to ask if anyone knows if the Burton Ruler boots suit the Rome 390 bindings.

I've been told a size 9 boot fits the L/XL size better, rather than the S/M.

Is anyone riding with this boot or any other burton boot with the rome 390 binding? and what do you think of them?

Your question really comes down to preference.  Some people will pair up a softer boot with a stiff binding, others will pair a soft binding with a stiff boot, and some will go soft and soft or stiff and stiff.  What really matters is whether or not you will like the pairing.  I would go with Rome's size guide to make that determination...you definitely do not want the binding to be too big and size 9 is in the medium range to me.

size 9 is medium binding range, you can adjust the bindings to fit your boot.
 
but if you get a size l/xl binding and adjust the binding to go as small as possible, it still may not be tight enough for your boot.

Aloha, Bro. I wear a 32 TM-Two boot in size 8 and have the Rome Arsenals in S/M. The Arsenal shares the same chassis as the 390 and for me the fit in the heel cup is pretty snug and the straps just barely fit my boots and I have all the adjustments maxed out. If I had to do it over again I'd probably get the L/XL, but Alkasquawlik brings up a good point about L/XL being too big. Best to take your boots and try on a pair of L/XL 390's.
Nothing to it but to do it.

32's have a huge outer shell, and the Rulers have Shrinkage tech........ so definitely get the S/M.

I've compared fitting my old Burton Boxers (size 9) on both the 390 boss s/m and the l/xl. I prefer the L/XL (although there is some adjustment required to bring the binding to its smaller setting). The s/m also has the capability to increase its size to fit boots on the higher end of the recommended size chart. I think ultimately, it depends on how high you want the highbacks. The s/m highbacks were noticably shorter than the l/xl (note, the highbacks are relatively short to begin with). Oh yeah, initially, the width of my boot was a better fit with the s/m, whereas the l/xl had a gap. This issue significantly reduced after adjusting the l/xl bindings to fit boots from the lower end of the size chart.

I have ruler boots in a size 11 and run the 390 BOSS bindings in a L/XL and they fit great.  The rulers aren't as soft as I would have liked, in hindsight I should have gone with the Ozones but they are still good boots.
