Union Force SL vs Rome 390 Boss

Hey guys i want to buy a new pair of bindings but i'm not too sure what i want yet. It's either the force SLs or the 390 bosses..

Im mostly a park rider but i tend to ride other trails when im bored. They're both sick park bindings but i figured i'd ask some experts because they're only $20 different in pricing. (both will be 2013 models)

They're gonna go on my arbor blacklist

Edit: They're replacing my Union Forces. I like the forces so that's why im thinking of upgrading to the SLs

We literally already have a Union SL vs Rome thread that I did. It's right above this thread. Check it out:

http://www.snowboardingforum.com/bin...n-vs-rome.html

Long story short, Rome wins over Union.

Thanks for the reply brotha. I looked through your thread before. 390s are sick bindings but I love my forces. I just wanted to know if it's worth upgrading to the SLs or completely changing companies/bindings

From what I learned throughout the ordeal, and from seeing other Union comparison threads, that the 390 Bosses are more flexible than the SLs. I see the SLs being recommended a lot to freeriders because of the stiffness reliability in the pow. The Bosses are pretty flexible, so if you're wanting a more park oriented binding, maybe go with the Bosses. just my two cents

i have the 2013 blacklist with 2012 390 bosses and its a sick setup, i would go with the 390s just because of the comfort, they feel like nothing when you strap in compared to my union forces

I was thinking of going the same route as you. Do you think the bosses do well all mountain?

From the Union Sales Manager, the SL is softer than the Force.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

i haven't rode them yet but i believe theyll do just fine if your a park guy riding the occasional trail, they are stiffer than my forces and i could charge any trail on my forces, so theoretically they will be great
