Amazing what happens when a brand fixes their product issues and people representing them show some tact isn't it? The new Union guy here has been civil, I'm being civil in return. AND they DID in fact change every functional issue I had with the Force: heel dampening, toe ratchet, toe strap. Toe strap still isn't tool less, but that's more nit picky. Still doesn't make sense though.
One thing I'm surprised no Force users have pointed out is the change in highback. The old Force had severe calf bite because the top of the highback was so round and stiff. They've added the flat blunted highback design from the Atlas line. IMO that change alone was the best they could make.
