Ya there's tons of info on the force...

In short they're a mid flex binding that're good at everything, excellent at nothing except longevity, and bad at nothing.

That's the force in a nutshell

They are a mid-flex binder that gets the job done around the mountain. I had a pair in 60/07 and lived them. I sold them and got some 08/09 Forces and did not like them as much.
I now have Drake Super Sports which are very similar to the Forces but I think they have a better feel and better straps! Just my Opinion

I've got 10/11 Forces. I love mine. A lot of people gripe about the old toe straps (if you buy used). I've never had a problem with mine and I spent ~20 days on the snow. I love the support and feel of them. Out of the 5 bindings I've tried, they're my favorite hands down. I can't wait to get this year's model.

yes sorry toe cap, I did not know that the materials were new. I was just stating that I liked the original toe straps not the ones that had the hard piece of plastic on the bottom. I haven't used the newest toe caps but I was also just stating that I Like my drakes which have a lot of similarities to union. I just like the starts better then the two forces that I used.

Good solid all-around bindings. No canted footbeds but I've never owned canted bindings so it's not that big of a deal. The new toe strap seems to hold just fine and you can use it as either a cap or a traditional strap. And to keep up the tradition, they can take a beating.
