Default Malavitas or Union Forces?

Some I've decided to get an Ultrafear for this season. I was wondering which bindings you guys would recommend to pair with this board? I have Cartels on my Horrorscope. I have tried Union Contact Pros, but I want to try some new bindings.

My vote is the vitas. I'm biased though, as I can't see the justification for the price and hassels of Union products.

Malavitas are $60 more than Forces. For that extra $60 you get no heel loop adjustment and a wing. Yea, great choice. Forces all the way. But then again, I'm biased.

The wing is only on the restricted. Don't forget you also get canting, a toe strap that works, ratchets that aren't made of rice crispies, reflex tech, and they are pretty damn light.

Vitas from someone that has owned bindings from both Burton and Union.

This is my biggest problem with Forces. You stand right on those rails in the heel section and they go all the way to the board. All of your dampening has to come from your boots alone.

hmm this is a tough one. i have cartels and c02's. i dont know if i would get another burton binding. their quality isn't the greatest. specially for the amount you pay. before the season starts im gonna have to lock tight every single screw on my binding. burton bindings have very nice straps tho i love the straps they are very comfortable. toe strap how ever meeehh. but the vita may outperform the contact this time
