Union SL vs force??
 
found a good deal on SL's...how do they compare to the forces?

Force is stiffer, heavier, stage 2 baseplate, stiffer highback.
SLs, lighter, stage 3, carbon injected baseplate, softer highback.

paging shralp.

SL has a flatter highback, similar to the contact pro. Also has an assym ankle strap. Is there something you wanted to know specifically?

It's an Asymmetrical-Symmetrical highback easy to roll in hard to roll out.
Forgot about the asym straps.

youtube search has a good overview of both. Internet, all-around, nice guy spenser says the force is the most responsive binding in the lineup, that's under $250

Due to the baseplate the SL is probably between the atlas and the force as far as response goes.

SL's. Forces have zero heel dampening.

what does Asymmetrical-Symmetrical mean? Isn't that contradicting?

The overall shape of the highback is symmetrical. The flex is not.

I thought forces have EVA padding in the heel?

They do. You can see it in the photo. But it sits below the plastic rails which go all the way to the board. You stand on the rails, not the foam.

I owned Data's that had the Force baseplate. Rode em a whole year. Dampening what complete shit.

phony_stark 11-09-2012 01:24 AM

Maybe I don't hit epic jumps or something, but I feel most of my dampening comes from my boots and flexing my ankles/knees when stomping.

Nivek, I'm noticing a lot of typos, are you using a telephone, you out on the town playboy you?
