New bindings, Union's but which one?

Hey, just bought me a Lib tech dark series 164W and now I'm looking for new bindings.
The bindings that I now have are union data bindings and I liked them very much but it's time for new one's.
Normally I would take the same one's but the problem is that they aren't looking very well (in my opinion).
So I'm doubting between: union force, union force sl, union contact pro, union asadachi, union contacts and union flite's.

Any advice is welcome

Thanks

Union force. I love mine on my lib tech skunk ape. I am going to get the asadachi's this weekend for my arbor wasteland.
I think the black or yellow forces would look so sick on your board. What year dark series is it?

You don't want the Contact or Flite on that board. Go with the Data, Asadachi, or Force.

@ snowboardr77: It's brand new, 2011

So force and those asadachi's are looking fine. What about those force sl or aren't they worth the extra money?

I went to east coast board company yesterday and seen the asadachi and they are very nice looking.
Very well made. I am going to pick them up on Saturday.

Why not just ride your Data's? I still have a 5 year old pair of Forces that are solid...just had to upgrade the toe strap last year. But if you're going on looks and new-ness then I like the Force SL

X2 on that my friend I love all the union bindings. I am trying out a pair of burton c60's this year on my 2010 wasteland and I hope I like them.

I'd go with the Yellow Force



Yea, the yellow Force would look the best, and ride insane too.

The Contact Pro would be even sicker given that they are lighter. I'm a bigger guy who has ridden them and they were solid.

Datas are my top pick from Union for that kind of board. But if you want a little changet the Forces are goto for most Union buyers. SL's have a softer highback

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
