Union Data or Union force

Well I need a good park binding for next year's season and I was thinking about trying out union because I've heard some pretty good stuff about them, but now I'm hung up on the Forces or the Datas. I also ride a bit of Powder and just cruse sometimes.
So what are the differences? Pros Cons of either of them?

The only difference is the color, the highback (insignificant), and the force comes with nylon straps and the data comes with leather. It doesn't matter what one you buy they're essentially the exact same thing. Both solid, and comfortable.

The straps are also more padded than the Forces. These bindings are super plush, but still give awesome response. You'll love them, I know I do.

The Datas may be the most comfortable binding on the planet, period. I love mine. If anything ever happens to them, I'd replace them with another pair of Datas. I'm spoiled. When I ride a friends' board I think "How the heck can my buddy stand these things?"

Not a fan of the Pinstripes? I like them myself, and thought I was picky. I almost got a set of POW's, though, but the highback seemed softer. Have you seen those ones?
