Stiffness of Targa vs Force

Looking for an all mountain binding, and was wondering how much stiffer the Targa is than the Force. Has anyone got experience with both the Force and Targa? Not talking about the SL, as the crux of the matter is whether its worth shelling out the extra dollars for the Targas.

I expect that the Targas to be a better all mountain binding, but the Force gets a pretty good wrap despite being seemingly park specific, so i thought i would try fish for some objective comparisons to see if the difference is worth forking out a few extra bucks.

Any info would be much appreciated.

I've owned both. Targa is better, by far, in every way except price. If you want Unions, the Data is a better option for AM use anyways, but Targa is still better. Also look into Flux Titans and Feedbacks.

Ya the targa's going to be stiffer than the force but for the price I'd go with the Union Data over the Targa just based on personal preference.

i like the forces over the targas. they are really comfortable and have a great medium flex. targas are heavy as shit.

Try this trick and spin it, yeah

You're right, totally personal preference. We just happen to be opposite on this one.
