Hi Punky,
Right now Prior's bought only completes from us, but if you asked them to get some baseplates only we could ship them with their next order. The Rome binders are nice, it will be difficult to get their parts on our baseplates, the attachment points are pretty different, you can see our hole pattern here. I'm not about to drop a new binding model right now.

I actually put 390 ankle straps on my Ignitions - found out I liked the pressure distribution a bit better - plus the fact that I´ve been xxx days on Rome binders, and am used to their software.. The hardware, though, might be trickier. Heelhoops on Rome binders aren´t really beefy at the bottom of your heels, but distribute pressure more over the whole binding via an aluminum hoop and the nylon baseplates. If you do, however, mock something up, post pictures. I have shitloads of spare Rome parts, so I could play around a bit with some inspiration.

In other news: Have put a few days on my splitter and Ignitions inbounds the past weeks, alongside my all mountain solid, mostly to just get used to the feel of the board before I put her through serious terrain. Sick response. Tried the same with the slider plates and Ride binders just for comparison, and that was "a bit" more iffy. Too much lateral flex, made my knees shake!

No need to hesitate, you hesitating hesitators! Buy Sparks!

Alright thanks for the response Will. Doesnt seem like my plan will work out, but my other idea was to do exactly as what Arlid has said he has done

I would buy some if they didn't cost almost as much as a new solid board.

any chance of a "spring sale"?

You can buy just the baseblate and try and find the missing parts from your existing bindings... you could even try and find Bent Metal bindings online at some discount outlet or something...

If you ask most of us, you'll get the answer that they are worth every penny! I would never go back to voile plates for sure!

I don't doubt that they are worth it, I just took out my split with my burton triads on the voile plates, and it was very sluggish. No way I would go into tight trees or anything like that with the response I was getting. Of course, the hard pack, sun cooked snow we had in Breck this weekend may have contributed.

I think I will look into just getting the base plates.

Was someone able to make their Rome 390s work? I've got a pair of those sitting in a closet...
