Default Better All Mountain- Ride Double Agent or Union Force SL?

Hi everyone. I've lurked in the forum for a while, but just recently joined and seldom post.

I'm looking to get new bindings for next season and I think I've narrowed it down to the Ride Double Agents or Union Force SLs. I've searched, but can't find any reviews comparing the two. Is this because they're not comparable? They both at about the same price point ($260 vs. $279) and they're both all-mountain, stiff bindings.

Does anybody have experience with both? I'm leaning toward the Union's because they seem to be lighter from the CNC, but I'm just wondering if I'm missing some pros about the Double Agents that give them an advantage.

Just to give a little background, I ride all-mountain. I prefer to carve but have been venturing to the park recently. I would say 80/20 mountain. I'm 6'0 205 lbs. and I ride an 08/09 NS Heritage (163) with Burton Customs, which seem to work just fine, but I have not basis for comparison, since they're all I've ever owned. The plastic ratchets slip often though, which is annoying. I'm sure either one of these will be an upgrade, but will probably keep them for years, so I want to make the right decision.

try some co2.. Force SL would be my choice over the double agents just due to the fact that all my boots are salomon and the ride bindings will not let my boot sit all the way down.

I put people in Salomons and Rides all the time. They're our best selling boots and bindings respectively.

Force SL's are not that stiff. They're more comparable to EX or maybe Revolts in performance. The MC's might match up the the SPi's, but the Double Agents are just stiffer than anything Union makes.

On a Heritage I would be looking at Deltas, SPi's, K2 Formulas, Flow NXT-AT's, Raiden Phantoms, or Flux SF45's.
