Default Looking for some guidance

Hello fellow snowboarders!

I have a question for you I hope you can help me with.

I have just bought a new DC PBJ 157 '10/'11 and I need some bindings.

The ones i have currently been looking at is the Union Contacts or the Union forces.

I will mainly be riding park and backcountry and I would prefer some bindings which are pretty comfortable. Is the Forces a bad idea?

Not a "bad" idea, just not the best idea. I think you'll be happier with Raiden Battery's or Zeros, Flux TT30's, or Flow M9's.

Seen a video with the raiden phantoms, where the ratchets look smooth as butter. I may be targeting raiden's this year

Of the four boards I'm looking at for 2012, Signal Park Flat, Signal Omni, Arbor Westmark, or Bataleon Whatever, I will more than likely be putting Raiden Zero's on whatever I end up on. And as long as the rep comes through I will also own Flow M9se's. So we'll see how that plays out with their new urethane topped modular highback.

Def keep us posted since those are two of the bindings I've been looking at. You can sell me whichever you don't like to keep

Specifically how pressing is on the Flows.

For now I have K2 uprises, I got them cheap, we'll see how I progress with them on an Evo

Uprises are a good binding I think you'll like them and you'll really like Harshmellow. I rode Quattro's for most of last year, Flows have a slightly better edge to edge benefit over 2 strap bindings but other than that they perform the same but do so in greater comfort.

the forces are good but you should take a look at the Rome 390 bindings their really light, really customizable and extremely comfortable the forces are really good though but I'd get the 390s
