Default 2010 Union Forces worth it?

Is it really worth the extra 50 bucks for the 2010 Forces, over $150 for the 2010 Cadet-DLX's? I was checking out the Cadet-DLX's at the mall yesterday and they felt pretty solid for all mtn.(Which is the type i'm looking for)

i would go with the force, the straps/base are much improved, and the force model will perform better for all mountain riding.

Well i know that Forces have the stage II baseplate with the lifetime warranty, but i don't think i've ever heard of any union baseplate breaking anyways? And i really ment all mtn/freestyle. like powder, steeps, trees, and jumps.(weird mix i know)

There is a difference but I really doubt it's worth 50 bux.

That's exactly my point of view, but some people are telling me otherwise.

I'm not sure how flux's 2010 line up is going to be priced but their Titan and Titan RK's will have urethane highbacks and dampeners which are supposed to be ideal for tweaking out and gettin real durrty. They will probably be in the same price range as Force-SL's. Flux's might be a little heavier but they are tool free.

Honestly I'd rather ride the Cadet than the Force. It's a solid binding for the price, the force I always question.

Cadet DLX? How much different is the Cadet from the DLX?
