Default 2011 Rome Targa or Union Force SL

Hey guys,

I am looking for a new set of bindings since my 2006 cartels broke this year. I am riding a 2010 Rome Mod and am looking for an all mountain freestyle binding that will compliment my board well and will handle anything I throw at them. If you guys have any other opinions id love to hear them but as of right now I have it down to these two.

Thanks again for your help much appreciated

Take the Targas. Great adjustability and versatility. Plus, IMO, I don't know what everyone sees in Union bindings (again, IMO).

I have last years sl. Super lightweight and great responsiveness. I love them there simple and they do the job they need to do. They have enough adjustments to make a guy happy but not to many to piss him off. And I think mine are super comfy. Rome is the new thing it seems tho. So maybe you wanna jump on the bandwagon. Good luck

Default Gotta love them targas

I have targas and love em. if your looking for a flexible and sturdy binding go with the targa, im a big guy and i was wary of breaking of em cause a throw a lot of force into my turns but they didn't warp or bend a bit.

haha he says rome is "the new thing"

rome was the new thing about 4 years ago, lately its been all "yo, get unions, they're (the) shit" "my unions stand up to a mack truck" "my freestyle unions are perfect for that big mountain ish you want to ride, just get them"

wait a little bit longer and flux will be the new fad, except flux has been around a whilleeeee

Do u read anything on this forum. Like nobody at all suggest unions it's all about the 390. The only reason I bought my forces was because I go a wicked deal on them. What do u ride bro Rome?

For that board Targas or Datas. The SL's surprisingly enough are softer than Datas. I'd just get Targa's

If you scan through all the posts regarding 390s you'll actually notice that posts about how good these bindings are go years back before the first mention of Unions. These are just simply good bindings and thus they keep coming back as one of the top choices for people and not because it's a fad.

union's are a fad more than any binding on this forum. i couldn't find anything special about them that would make me feel comfortable dropping $200 on a set of forces.

Went to a local shop to check them both out... notice that the rome 390s looked kinda bulky, maybe it was just because they had that david bowie cover thing on them (I believe 2010's). I see mixed impressions everywhere some people say the Unions are lighter but then I see posts that say 390's and Targas are among the lightest bindings.

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
