Default Which Union binding?

Alright so my shop has the Forces and the Flites and i'm not sure which one to get. I have a Rome Pusher and I do a lot of fast park riding, big jumps, rails, etc. I also like to rip around the whole mountain and i want the binding to be able to handle a sick pow day. any thoughts?

My vote goes to the force. The forces can pretty much handle anything you thrown at them. On the other hand, the flite is more of a park binding.

Nah, just stating my opinion

And giving a little bit of payback for all the Flow threads that were ruined by Union supporters around here

I couldn't say anything before because I never demoed a pair, but now I can

This.

I've never fallen for the whole Union hype. Every time I've ever handled a pair of Unions, I've never felt like I was handling a quality product compared to other brands. I've never ridden Unions so I can't speak at length about them, but I've just never been impressed. Everyone has their preferences though.

Why are you only limiting yourself to Unions?

Here is what Leo really wants to say.

(In my best online Leo impersonation.)
"Unions make a pretty good binding but for the most part not as incredible as people make them out to be. I would like for people to try on other bindings before praising Unions as the best in the world as there are many selections and lots of really good bindings out there. For $200 the Force is a good binding but I believe there are better options out there for the same price. If I were to recommend bindings from Union I would say either the 390s or Targas and try Flows before you bash them."

Haahaha was I pretty close?
