Default Union Factory vs Union Superforce 14/15

This question is for the union gurus around here.

My backround, I currently ride a Never summer SL with Union Forces both board and binding are 2010 models. I picked up a 14/15 NS Snow Trooper and I'm looking to get new bindings, something a bit stiffer than my current setup.

My options are between the Union Factory
https://www.unionbindingcompany.com/...factory#silver

Or the Union Superforce
UNION 2015 SUPERFORCE ASADACHI - Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer

My main questions are does the Super force come with canted foot beds and are they pretty much as stiff as the factories?

One thing I don't like about the super forces are the toe caps, I absolutely hate them and I would probably switch them out for a different ones from the factory bindings.

Any thoughts or insight would be greatly appreciated.

SuperForces are not canted.
They're real similar to the Factories. I doubt you'd be able to tell a difference unless you rode them back to back to back.

Im still being told the Force is the stiffest binding outside of maybe the FC in the Union line. If that matters.

If you havent used the new toe strap and are just assuming you wont like it based on its looks, dont be so quick to judge. It actually does a really great job wrapping the toe.

Thanks for the replies so far. I was hoping they had the canted foot beds on the Superforce but I guess they don't. As for the toe cap, I was at my local shop and they have the factory and the T.rice models in stock and the T.rice toe strap is the same as the Superforce and when I strapped a boot into them it doesn't look like it holds all that well when used as a toe cap (which is my preferred method) and in my opinion they look very cheap as well. When I strapped a boot into the Factory it look much more secured in my place.
