Union vs Rome?

I just picked up a lib tech attack banana for a park dominate board, and now I need some bindings. I was wondering what any of you thought of the Union Asadachi vs the Rome 390 Boss, those have caught my eye so far. Or maybe any other suggestions?

Both quality bindings so you can go wrong either way. The differences of feel and components come down to personal preference.

If you're going to get the 390 Boss I'd wait till next year's model.

Between the Union Asadachi and the Rome 390 Boss, I would go with the Romes - I did as well (although was more attracted by the Union Atlas than the Asadachi). Asadachi has premium pricing because of the looks (which are admittedly cool) but is older tech, so I think the Romes (and other bindings mentioned like the Union Force) are much better value for money.

Agreed about the pricing, but I'm lookin on a site that has discounted gear cuz someone simply returned them a month later or was used for a couple months. I'm not anal about having pretty, out of the box brand new gear

Any details regarding this? I picked up a pair of 2011's last season and my only gripe is that the toe strap will slip on me once in a while.
