Question New bindings...

I'm looking at bindings and have been reading a Ton and have seen a lot about a few bindings.

I'm stuck between:
Burton prophecy
Union Force/ls
Rome targa or 390 boss

I basically ride everything from powder when there is some to park with jumps and rails boxes ect. Everything under the sun for the most part. I'm not sure what ones to get. I ride a jp walker forum. It's fairly stiff. 8 on a scale of 1-10. So which ones? They all seem like good solid bindings.

I would say forces or 390s i believe forces are a bit stiffer then 390s so better at bombing blacks and such, but 390s are better for rails and park..

Ok. Hmm I think the forces might be the way to go. What is the difference between the targa,390 boss, and the 390? Either looks good I read the targa is the same as the 390s but a bit more padding making them comfy. Not change in response. What about the 390 boss?

I'm running Flux SF45's on my Forum Conflict (John Jackson's model). I believe it's the stiffest board in Forum's line this year. The SF45's are stiffer than the Force's I previously had, and I absolutely love this combo. I ride everything from double black powder runs to park sessions minus the rails. I ran 2 pairs of Force's before I realized that the toe straps just weren't for me. I would add the SF45's to your list...

I think im going to go with the rome targa or boss 390's. Which is better for all around riding? And is the only reason you gave up the forces was because of the tow strap?

I really like the idea of the cant system in the rome's which the forces do not have.

Yeah. That was my only negative with the Force's. They are still a great binding, and the go-to binding for a ton of riders. The Targa's are going to be stiffer than the 390's, and will probably be better if you spend a lot of time shredding the steeps...

im still up in the air either burton prophecys im hearing some really good stuff about them or the 390 boss. I also hear the burton Cartel Reflex is a nice binding. But the prophecys are similar.

Im going to go take a look at these bindings in person and decide at that point. Basically if I want forces though I have to decide tonight and order them tomorrow. Im not too keep on the Yellow ones which is all they have.

Anyone know if there is any real difference between the Union Force SL or Union Force? Only thing I saw was a different strap. Flex appears to be the same but with an asymetrical high back.

Oh they're different. The Sl highback is stiffer front back and softer side to side. The base is a little stiffer and ligter too.

That said if you want SL's, get Flux SF45's, if you want Forces, Get TT30's. Flux just make a better binding I'm finding.

Nitranes for an inbetweener. They can be a pain in the ass if they don't match your boot well, or if you wanna use them to demo other boards on a cold day (footpads hate coming off), but other than that I really liked mine. If they match the boots I get next year I'll be picking up another set.

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