The MC (Machine Coring)is built to be Unions lightest binding, not to be stiffest. Carbon, machined coring, aluminum hard wear, metafuse and magnesium are all used to build a pair of bindings that weigh less than 3lbs.

Charger has a solid carbon highback and carbon injected base. It is stiff. This binding was built as a no frills carbon highbacked binding thats real responsive.

SL's (Super Light) are MC's built with normal Union materials and aren't $400.

The Force is built on our original baseplate, which is a little beefier than what the above are built on, the Atlas baseplate. When we built the Atlas, goal was to update the Force with increased mobility and to lighten it up. By taking away some of the weight out of the Atlas, it loosed it up a tad and the Force baseplate is still our most responsive.

Hoped that helped Kevin.
your bindings suck. spend some $ on R&D and less on sourcing swag colors for little kids.
