I'm leaning towards the targa's a lot but was curious how people feel about the union (non rotating high back but the asymmetrical flexible on one side style high back)

Thanks so much guys
hey when you piciked up the romes. were you able to notice a weight difference between the 390s and the targas?

The shop didn't have both sets of bindings only the 390's... Im gonna have to wait a couple weeks till our local shops get in all there new gear and let you guys know.

The review of the Force SL on the good ride is really talking the union bindings up big time...hmmm

Union Force SL Snowboard Binding Review
"If you want a board or binding that rips more for sometimes half the price buy Union and Capita! These bindings seem like the new Cartel for the industry. This year they have better ratchets and added EVA padding on the top of the base plate."

Because of this awesome review, I should go buy some?

1/2 the price? union and capita's pricing is inline with the industry. $370 for the jibstick horrorscope, $200 for basic force's that if they didn't say union on them, no one would pay them any attention.

how big is the difference between the two? I like Alphas, but I don't want to get something too stiff, and from what I have read on another thread the Delta is pretty much in the middle.

Sorry yater, but I can't believe that review at all. For a more unbiased review, check out the Angry Snowboarder website.

In the 2011 series, you shouldn't feel that much of a difference in stiffness between the two bindings.

Just read that this years SL have a stiffer highback than the standard force and than previous years. It will also have the base plate milled out (not sure if they had this last year as well).

Going to post my opinions when I see them in person should be next week. If anyone has seen the 2011 already (Targa's and SL's) Please post your feelings.

Thanks again guys

Personally prefer basic Forces to the Targas. Just as comfortable, they have the adjustments you need (without having too many things to adjust) and they're a touch cheaper. Solid bindings. Not that I have anything against the Targas.

Targas have the canted option which might be a deal maker for some.

Can't comment on the SL but they used to be softer than the Forces.
