Default Flux TT30 or Union Force

Hey guys, so my Flow flite 3's broke and im thinking about getting new bindings all together, mainly because my Flow's sucked and they were a real hassle. I've narrowed my choices down to the Flux TT30 and the Union Force. Both are around the price range im looking at. I'm a beginning rider and have gone out about 8~ times(broke my wrist first time last season) yet have progressed pretty quick and do intermediate and advanced runs with relative ease. I want to do all-mountain but with a bit of freestyle here and there, like rails and jumps, eventually.
My board is a DC Devun Walsh Pro HKD 2010 158cm. (bought on sale last year).
Boot: Burton Moto 2012 10.5
I know i wrote a lot there but let me get to the point:
Which binding would work best and which binding would i have a better chance of nabbing at a end of season sale.(I live in the U.P so we have good snow until mid-March, then it gets sloshy) So by end of the season i mean in the February sale period so i can get a little bit of riding in.
Please give suggestions on other bindings. price range: no more than 200 MSRP. Unless you think they'll be a crazy discount on it.(online)
Thanks

Force hands down. I've been riding flux on my park board this year, and committed myself to them because I bought them. I can honestly say I'm not impressed with the ankle strap and response. The toe strap is the best part. My Force fit like a glove. I'll be going back to Union for sure.

THe toe strap is the best part on the Union's?
I thought the toe strap on union's was an issue?

He probably means the toe strap of the Flux's.

I also hear Union's cap straps are poorly designed. Could be a lot better.

That is on the older models and even those work almost all of the time when set up properly.

Can't speak for the Unions, as I haven't tried them. But I demoed the TT30s this weekend, and am considering them in my own binding hunt along with the Forces too (my K2 Sonics need replacing). They were my 5th option for bindings, but I'm glad I tried em out. I'm an intermediate rider and can't relate specifics as a proper reviewer would, but I thought they were responsive, comfortable, and sucked up the chop for a smooth ride. These are like day and night compared to my sonics. I was going faster than I had before as the speed chatter wasn't there. I had no problems with ratchets on or off. Did take half the morning to get em adjusted properly to my boots, and super easy to adjust.

I'm going to demo the Force's in couple weeks as well.

Flux TT30. Easy answer. Take the advice. If not, you still get a good binding. Just not the better option. Don't ask why. Just have faith.

I switched to TT30's from Rome 390's this season, and will never look back. The best damn bindings I've ever ridden with so far.

I've had the Flux Titan RK and the SF45.

The first time I tried them there were no pressure points whatsoever. I was so amazed. Very comfy bindings.
Easy to use, responsive for turns.

The only thing I don't like about Flux's are the low quality of strap materials used. Could be much improved.
The other issue is paint chipping off the base early on.

Otherwise, the baseplate and highbacks are excellently put together in terms of performance and fit.
