So I am reading the Unions are a stiffer binding, which Rome binding would be a better comparison of apples to apples in terms of stiffness?

Yikes. I heard nothing but good things about the 390 bosses so I picked one up (stupid cheap) and now I hear toe straps and ratchet problems

Oh well. Use them for a year and find something new anyway.

I ordered the Targas for my buddy. I have em sitting here, and they're notably stiffer. Very sturdy, and also one of the best bindings I've had the chance to look at

I haven't heard of these as "problems" but rather something they upgraded for this years model. Union on the other hand, Ive heard multiple times that they have those exact issues.

I don't think the toe-strap on the Union's is as bad as everyone makes it out to be, but it is definitely not as nice as my Cartels. The ratchet is fine, maybe a little difficult to release, but it never jams up or anything.

I've owned several pairs of 390's, Targas, and Forces. Rome > Union all day long.

+1 overall, I've had the best experience with the new Union toecap. Burton's is pretty tits, but I've had issues when it's dumping and snow gets in it, or the toebox of my boot is icy. Union's has a fucking deathgrip. The toeratchet is harder to release than any other ratchet but will release if you pull it just like any other toe ratchet. I also think it's not a bad thing since, if you're doing it right, you're spending more time riding and less time needing to adjust your bindings.

At Triple8...I've only owned one pair of Romes and (obviously) prefer Unions.
