Default union force or rome arsenal

i'm looking for a beginner-intermediate level binding for all-mountain. majority of the reviews lead to the union force .. but i was wondering about the rome arsenal as well. between the two which is the way to go? are there any other bindings that i've overlooked in that price range?

Arsenal is stiffer. I'd go with that one over the Forces, if that's the way you're going with it. Also look into the Ride SPi for something in that price range.

I decided to jump on the union force band wagon this season and super happy i did. I have always had problems experiencing pressure points in the past with my bindings. These are a different story. No pressure points at all...still trying to get use to not having to crank them down so tight like i have with previous bindings. I also love the toe straps.

Get the Forces. I would not consider the Arsenals as an all-mtn binding.

The Force toe-strap is the best i've had over my boot (from a total of around 10).

Agreed! I don't understand how others have problems with them slipping off of their toes.
