Reading through the arguments is time consuming haha. Although people say union has bad toe straps.. I again can't see why they won't fit over the hails considering they're overall profile is smaller. I'm most likely gonna pick up the atlases because they're at the store.. Much easier for me. 390s seem great but I
Think I'll have more trouble getting the boot to work the binding

Dude, you'll love your Atlases, my fave binding of all time, some others agree.
Regarding Rome, seriously, I rode 390 bosses and liked them, they're fine bindings, I just like my Atlases more.

Post pics when you get them set up!

edit: sorry about the shitstorm on your thread. Nivek knows a LOT about snowboards and is, often, constructive, and knowledgeable, but Union is an exception. H really really REALLY doesn't like Union for some reason or another....

Sounds good. You'd still recommend them
As a soft freestyle binding right?

Don't worry about it man, it gives me something to do when I'm bored as hell in class lol

The thing about the Atlas, no bullshit, is they, like the contact pro, will work on any board you put them on.

I've ridden them on something as soft as my arbor draft and as stiff as my charlie slasher and the response seems to be whatever you want it to be.

It seems weird, but it's true.

Sounds good. They should pair up nicely on my arbor blacklist. How do you think they compare to the forces?

I used to have the forces but sold them to pick something new up.

They'll be tits on the blacklist...in fact that's probably the perfect match as, I've heard the blacklist is on the softer side of medium, flex wise. The Atlas is the same.


Compared to the Force, lighter, a little softer, and more lateral flex but still responsive. I also prefer the on the fly forward lean adjuster, I think it's the best in the industry.
