Bindings for Capita BSOD (Union Force vs. Rome 390 vs. Salomon District)

Hi!

So I just bought myself a new board, the Capita Black Snowboard of Death, now I'm looking for some bindings for it.

The ones I'm currently chosing between, which is within my price range (on sale) is:

Union Force
Rome 390
Salomon District

Which ones do you think will fit me? Or any other options?

9.5US
94kgs

Will mostly do groomers, some pow (not knee deep), trees. No park and limited amount of jumping.


Appreciate the help,

Cheers

What is your budget? You probably want a stiffer binding to complement that board and your riding style.

I'd go with some Burton Cartels if you can find last year's for a good price.

The Force aren't regarded as stiff. I can't comment on the other two you have listed.

Pretty much any of the medium to mid-stiff bindings on the market would work.

My faves are Ride Rodeos, K2 Lien AT, Rome Katanas, and Flux DS.

any of those you mentioned would be excellent.
you don't necessarily need stiff bindings for a stiff board.

the only ones I can recommend based on experience from those are the Forces, but everything I've heard would say the 390's are fairly comparable.

Id have to say the Rome 390's just because i love my 390 bosses. I've never owned or ridden Unions but I've seen a lot of them have small issues and IMO they feel cheaper to me. Again thats only what I've noticed and someone could have the complete opposite opinion on it.

You're gonna want something stiffer for that beast of a board. I'd checkout the Now Drive, Burton Cartel, Rome Targa or Salomon Defender if you really must have shadowfit.

15 Now Drive . 14 Burton Genesis

Not that beastly of a board anymore. Similar to like a Yes Optimistic or Ride Berserker. It's not the monster it once was. The Mercury is the beef deck now.

Are you saying this from experience Matty? Everything I've read makes them sound like they are on the stiff side of medium and Union rates them 6/10 for whatever thats worth. Based on my experience with the old atlas, which I believe has the same base plate as the new force, I'd venture to guess the force may actually be slightly more responsive. I just picked up the 2015 Forces and can say the highback definitely feels stiffer than my old cartels.
