    Posted: Jan/01/2011 at 4:53pm
Hey all,
So I've been riding on my 06 (not sure if they're really 06 cuz I got them used, but I'm just guessing) Cartels for about 2 seasons now, and every time I board, for the first few runs or so, my feet kill me. I think they're just too stiff, or don't have enough padding or something, but it's pretty painful, to the point where I have to stop. The ankle strap is also pretty stiff, and cuts off my circulation pretty bad. I get used to it after a few runs though, so it's all good. But last weekend, I tried my friend's Rome 390 Boss's on his signal rocker, and everything was gone - foot pain, ankle pain. It was pretty plush...

Anyways, I've been thinking about getting some new binders as a result, and I've been considering the Sierra s90's. Anyone know how they compare to the comfort of the Rome 390 boss's?

390 boss is the new 390, S90 is the old 390 highback with arsenal baseplates i think.  should be real similar though, but if you like his bindings then i would just go for the same thing.

Did you use his bindings on your board or his bindings on his board?  It might not be the bindings and just how he has set them up.  If I don't set my bindings to the angles I like no matter how good the bindings are my feet will kill.

I have the same problem as you.  The first hour or so is killer on my feet.  Is it my bindings or boots???

I also have the 06 cartels. Try moving the highback down or unscrewing the ankle strap and moving it forward.

Yeah I'll try moving the ankle strap - but the highback is completely down.

I don't think it's a boot problem, b/c I didn't have any problems with the same boots, on his board and bindings.

But yeah, it was on his board too, but I'm pretty sure it's my bindings. I can feel some pain even when I'm just standing on the board. And our stances are the same.

The S90s are a collaboration between Rome and TruSnow. I believe the ankle strap is from the 390, not sure about the other parts, but I have heard good things about them. I just picked up a set of the 390s and should have them tomorrow. Hopefully I will be able to get out on them soon and have a chance to review them. As for the 390 boss, they are the same as the 390s except with the addition of degreed cantbeds, you get 3 choices, and color options are of course different.

From what I hear, you can't go wrong with Rome or Union, etc.

i've actually heard the straps on the rome/sierra collab aren't that great.  i think people were complaining about the ratchets a lot. although, they do look like a great pair to nab.  
i'm riding on union forces, and they feel like a dream. i've never had discomfort because of them. =]
