Dude trust me, my head was spinning with all this new shit going into bindings. The last time I bought bindings half of these companies didn't even exist. I did TONS of research before I ended up making a decision on the SL's and from my understanding the Metafuse is their stiffest top of the line binding, then comes the SL's then comes the force.
Those are the only ones that I know because none of the other products in their line can up a lot in discussion in my search to get a grip with all that goes into bindings now.
Like I said I ride the SL's and can tell you I can shred the shit out of any trail as fast as my board can take me and feel like I'm in complete control, yet the other day I spent 80% of my time in the park and the torsional flex and the shock absorption allowed me to kill it there as well.
Sounds like your enjoying your new set-up!
Yeah, I just pulled the trigger on malavitas that were on sale for $156. I was on the fence with these, hence the inquiries about union. But for that price, I said what the hell!
