Union Binding's

Sup guys..I'm in the lookout for some new binding's and I'm thinking about Union's. Not sure which style yet, but I read good reviews on them. Im trying not to break the Bank, so im looking into maybe the Cadets,Force's of Conatacts. Anybody ride any of these? And are they Highback adjustible? Rotating I mean. Thanks

They all have rotating high backs. The forces are the best of the group. They have the better baseplate and straps by far. The contacts are still decent but a little softer and without the cush straps. Stay away from the cadets, they're an entry level binding.

See for me I have 2 boards one for park(which I rearly ride) with Technine(coulter) bindings which are semi stiff. On my other board which I use for all round riding I have Cartel's( which are softer than the T9's). So I wanna get stiffer Binders for the all mountain board. Thats why I was asking about Union's. By the way my park board is a 09 Kink, the all mountain is a 09 GNU Vertighoul.

If your looking for something stiff than cartel don't go for the forces. They're deffenatly softer than cartels

How old are they? I demo'd some at the end of last season and they seemed pretty stiff
