Good bindings, but quality is fading

This is my third pair of Rome bindings, second pair of 390's. I had 390's from a couple of years back, and also Targas from a couple of years back. The Targas are still bomber, the older 390's have been retired after ~120 days. They were still ridable, but for safety reasons, I decided sending them to the big mountain in the sky was a good idea.

On to the new ones. Out of the box, I had to trim one of the "nubs" on the foam pad because it was not properly installed into the base plate. The second problem was with one of the assembly's for high-back rotation. It was already stripped when I unscrewed it to rotate the high-back, so the screw wouldn't stay in place after re-assembly. This part was replaced by Rome in a couple of weeks.

They are still very very good bindings, but Rome needs to step up on their quality control before things get worse, and get on it to fix these issues that are starting to crop up.

I've got 20-25 days on them now, and they have performed flawlessly so far but I'll be keeping a close eye on what happens with the quality of going forward before buying another pair.

I've got them on a Rome Postermania right now, and this is a great combo in the park and when just playing around.
