Wrong, last year's Super Pro/Team (same binding, different color) had the Atlas baseplate.
This year's Factory is pretty much the same binding as last year's Super Pro/Team, just with canted footbeds, non-pigmented nylon, and slightly different straps (and, of course, the upgraded buckles as on all Union bindings).

Correct. Last year's (2013) SuperPro/Team was built off an Atlas baseplate.
This year's SuperPro/Team (2014) are built off a Stage IV Force baseplate

You will literally be paying $130 more for a U on a highback. The Team and Force highback are indistinguishable in flex.

Yes, those are the new Team bindings.

Force Base + Factory Highback and Straps

The Super Pro binding is basically the same thing, with Force Straps.

Nice also some canted footbeds in the teams?

For jibbing, rails, kickers you recomend a board like the capita ultra fear? Or do you have other options?

No cant in the Teams. Only the Factory has cant this year.

The team bindings are primarily for our team riders. Only 2 people out of 100+ on the team actually want canted bindings. Seriously.

Personally I believe canting serves a purpose, but the consumer demand for it is the result of marketing. If we put canting on everything, we'd have a lot of pissed off pros. Also, guys like Torstein wouldn't be riding UNION for free.

In regards to boards, I'd suggest the Outdoor Living for what you're doing. It's an all around freestyle board. True twin, flat camber. I love that board.

What's the difference between the stage III Atlas base and the stage IV Force base?
