Union Vs Rome Bindings
 
Looking for basically a freestyle based binding, but with the ability to ride trails comfortably too. I've heard great things about both companies, though Union seems to have much more of a selection..but that doesn't make it better in many cases.
So I'm asking you guys - which brand is better, and which specific binding would suit my needs?
Also what boots should i get to go along(looking for a mix of everything in the boot).

E; Got a 2010 Capita Stairmaster if that helps with anything

I personally use and recommend Union Forces but i cant knock on Rome bindings especially the 390s.Ive had my forces for three seasons and they havent given me any problems plus they are comfortable.they can handle just about anything.Ive heard nothing but great things about rome bindings.its all up to you.

Union goes well with capita, since they are under the same company. I also have a pair of force, which works great on all occasions. The only complaint I have is the toe strap its not the greatest. But other than that its a pair of great bindings at an excellent price. Plus the new yellow colorway look sick!!

Alright cool, basically everything im hearing from this post is others is that it's pretty much my preference so i guess ill start lookin myself lol

I also have an 2010 Stairmaster, Indoor Survival and I say Union for the win, both comfortable and clean looking. Also the 2011 Union's have grip on the toe strap to eliminate the issues they've had in the past.

Which binding do you hhave Laz? I heard some Union bindings are way softer than others, and i don't want to completely buy the wrong set for my board

I have both Forces and Contacts, the Contacts highbacks are very soft, for all Mountain I would go with the Forces.

Alright, are the contacts like BAD for all mountain or just not really good? I'm like 80% park 20% non-park so it doesnt matter too much.

For that breakdown they're fine. Maybe the Pro's though?

laz167 09-18-2010 05:16 PM

For mostly park the Contacts would be fine, but I personally like the Forces more they're a lil stiffer but not super stiff. The Pro's are suppose to be good also but I have no experience on them..Do note that the Contacts base runs a tad bit smaller than the forces.. So if you have size 10 boot union says to use M/L , I would get L/XL. I wear size 10 (32 lashed boots ) and have both Forces and contacts in M/L but found that the contacts are a lil smaller.
