Talking Union Force or Rome 390 Boss for my Skate Banana?

Hey guys,

I need to pick up some new bindings for Skate Banana and wanted to get your opinions.

Would you rather buy:

Union Force 2010/2011 - $70 (used - http://images.craigslist.org/00A0A_g...0E_600x450.jpg
http://images.craigslist.org/01010_8...aB_600x450.jpg)

or

Union Force 2013/14 - $130 (technically "used" but looks brand new)

or

Rome 390 Boss 2012/13 - $150 (brand new)

Thanks in advance for the input!

I haven't tried any of these bindings, but I will say that Rome customer service is excellent. I recently contacted them about buying some new straps for my 2008 Arsenal bindings and highback stops since mine were coming loose. They told me their bindings have a lifetime warranty and sent me all the parts for free. Nice service for 5 year old bindings.

i have both union forces and contacts, and recently bought a pair of 390s. my rome's lasted 3 days before the ankle strap broke in half and then i spent 2 hours waiting in line at the repair shop to have it fixed. not a fun day at all, go with union!

Thanks for the reply. Do you think it would be worth getting the new 2013/14 Union Force for $130 or getting the 2010/11 at $70. Is there a big difference between those models?
