Union Force vs. Burton Missions

Trying to make a final decision on bindings for my Elan/Artec Cipher board (traditional cam)

Going to be doing a mix of freestyle riding and park. I have been leaning more towards the Union's, seems like they are highly rated and people have enjoyed them.

My boots are Burton btw.

Opinions would be appreciated between these two set ups!

I would definitely go with the unions over the burtons. After breaking a pair of burtons I'm not the biggest fan. My unions have been rock solid and I picked up a second pair this year. Hoping to ride them tomorrow night.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

Yeah, I'd go with the Forces over the Mission's every time. They will last longer & the heel & toe response is better (IMHO). I dumped my P1.1's for the Forces.

Neither. Go Rome 390 or Flux Titan. Both are way better than the 2 you listed.

I've owned 4 pairs of Union's over the years and have fallen in love. Owned a pair of cartels too but liked my forces more :P
