Boss 390 has the cant foot bed.  I'd go with the bosses over the 390s.

"Three canting options—0°, 2° and 3.5°—for wide-stance comfort and added pressure over nose and tail"

Canting causes your feet to be placed on the board at a small angle, which benefits the rider by creating a more natural stance and allowing wider stance variations. I definitely recommend going for the canted Boss 390s, the canting makes me so much more comfortable while riding.

The boss 390s has interchangeable footbeds you can swap out for different angles.  They are not sold separately so I think the $10 increase is worth it. 

The idea is that it gives a better, more natural stance which helps lower stress on joints.

There is a picture of a ride bindings with a pretty aggressive cant footbed in this thread.

hmmm isnt flat the natural angle? haha but anwyays since you guys say its worth it and its only 10$ difference, l guess thats the way l'll go. Thanks!!

oh but l last question, l went to store to look at k2 bindings and burton. The rachet feels fine but when you strap into the boots, the k2 binding keeps getting choked up. Does ti happen to these also?

Try it out for yourself.  Stand up and spread your legs apart like you are snowboarding.  Bend your knees and you can see/feel that the outside of your feet lifts up slightly.

I've never had any problems with the ratchets on my 390s.  I love Rome's toe/cap strap.   I'll probably pick a pair of Bosses up later in the season.

So far, IMO, K2 have poorly made ratchets, they're not smooth at all and gets jammed.  Burton's ratchets are smooth though.
Sessions sucks hairy monkey balls, the end.

He races to the top of the dune and looks down onto the strand. There is water and wet sand and dry sand and small pokes of sharp grass dotted along Mabinogi Gold the beach. He stands on the lip of the concrete defence; looks east, to the line of groynes, then west, to the lighthouse in the distance. There's no one he can see, no one he Mabinogi Gold can call to for help. Below him, the drop onto the beach is fifteen, maybe twenty, feet. He jumps because he has to, jumps out into the air, and sees as he falls one more thing; a cloud of white birds hanging on the skyline. There is a hot taste filling his mouth, like molten iron, and a black pain, and the knowledge that his teeth are through his lip.
It's always this same dream that Lewis has, and he does the same thing when he wakes; he reaches up to feel the place where his bottom lip was opened, running a finger over his chin. He has a scar there still, almost imperceptible to the casual eye, like a ghost mouth that never opens, like a horizon. It has been fifteen years since Mabinogi Gold he jumped and fell, and he has never been back to the beach. He has spent his adult life in the heart of England, at the very core of the city, as if putting himself in the dense centre of a world would protect him from another fall off the edge of it. But now he has returned to his mother's house, and the dream is more vivid here, in colour, with sound effects and rising panic, as if it too has finally come home.

Bustone, and his homosexual partner Kikki Rodriguez, had MapleStory Mesos been admitted for emergency treatment after a felching session had gone seriously wrong. "I pushed the cardboard tube up his rectum and slippedFaggot, our gerbil, in," he explained. "As usual, Kikki shouted"Armageddon," my cue that he'd had enough. I tried MapleStory Mesos to retrieve homosexual but he wouldn't come out again, so I peered into the tube and struck a match, thinking the light might attract him." At a hushed press conference, a hospital spokesman described what had happened next. "The flame ignited a pocket of intestinal gas and a flame shot up the tube igniting Mr. Bustone's moustache and severely burning his face. It also set fire to the gerbil's fur and whiskers MapleStory Mesos which, in turn, ignited a larger pocket of gas further up the intestine propelling the rodent out like a cannonball."

Depends when your boyfriends birthday is and when they restock. I only hear good things about the cartels and forces thou. One of the best people to ask on this site would be spencer, he knows his shiz. 

Personally i'd try get Rome bosses from another site or something. Super comfy bindings.

The crazy spam bot train is at full throttle this morning.  How did they dig up an ancient thread.

Also, did his stupid little stories remind anyone else of Kevin Nealand's "Subliminal Man?"
 
"oh yeah, this is totally going to work..."
