Forces will be softer than 390s? Really? In what way?
pretty much my reaction. I thought 390s were much softer (well, for a "mid-stiff" binding), especially in the highback. Basetray might be a little stiffer, but not enough that I think it matters. I personally think toe straps on the 390s are far superior, but were a bit lacking in some of the adjustment options (highback rotation was a bit frustrating-- heel cup adjustment on the Forces is also nice)
