All Mountain/Park Jump Bindings

I've narrowed down my choices and will be buying today or tomorrow. I'm looking for something for an all-mountain setup and for jumps (not big on jibbing, so I don't need a really soft park binding). Budget $200-250

I guess my old bindings are stiff - 2007 Rome Arsenal.

So I'm thinking I don't want something too soft, but I would like something comfortable/shock absorbent while still really responsive:
  • Union Force
  • Salomon Chief
  • Rome 390 Boss
  • K2 Company

I'm thinking the Union Contact Pro may be too soft for me. I've found I like a more aggressive board vs. the surfy/playful ones, so I don't think I want a soft binding. But I really haven't had a chance to try out any new bindings in years. I'm also about to get a new board (possibly K2 Happy Hour or Lib Tech Hot Knife).

I rode the 390 Bosses for 2 seasons and I highly recommend those bindings. Two of my friends have purchased 390 bosses under my recommendation. The level of adjustability is insane, and they have enough flex to be fun, while still being stiff enough to handle jumps and steep. The canted foot beds are awesome too, taking pressure off the inside of your knees to keep you comfortable for the whole day. Rome also has an excellent customer service program, and the auto-strap feature is really neat too.

I currently ride the Union Datas and Union Atlases, and enjoy them because of their high quality of build and simplicity. I would recommend the Contacts or Chargers over the Forces, however.

I would not recommend Salomon or K2 bindings, as I feel that they are sub par on a variety of levels to the Rome and Union brands.
