Personally, I'd try to find a pair of SL's if you want Unions. The Asadachi is pretty middle of the road for stiffness. It's compareable with the Force. The SL is stiffest Union you can get. At least until the Chargers come out. The Targas would work well, and the 390's would work alright as well. The 390's are about the same as the Force for stiffness as I understand it.

I'm confused how are the asadachi middle of the road stiffness yet have the sl highback which is the stiffest, is it because of the straps? Also I was looking at the atlas and they look pretty sweet but a bit on the pricier side, I may wait and see if they go down any more over the summer or see if there's a decent pair on ebay/craigslist before I make a final choice. Not like I'm going to be riding the new never summer up at st marys glacier haha
