Do u read anything on this forum. Like nobody at all suggest unions it's all about the 390. The only reason I bought my forces was because I go a wicked deal on them. What do u ride bro Rome?
If you scan through all the posts regarding 390s you'll actually notice that posts about how good these bindings are go years back before the first mention of Unions. These are just simply good bindings and thus they keep coming back as one of the top choices for people and not because it's a fad.
