Battle of the bindings: 2008 Union Forces vs. 2005 Burton C-60s

I wanted to get an opinon from all y'all concerning two pairs of bindings; a friend of mine recently gave me his barely used (less than 10 days) 2005 Burtons C-60s, and everything I've read has said that the C-60s are the cream of the crop for bindings. Last year i picked up a new pair of Union Forces, which got a lot of use but were nonetheless a solid binding that i really can't complain about. i wondering which binding is a better fit for my style, etc.

About my riding; I consider myself an intermediate-advanced all mountain rider, although I use a twin tip most of the time so i can hit the park at the end of the day. I'm a little guy too (5'9" 145), so i'm not too worried about busting the polymer bindings, which I've heard is a drawback to the C-60s. I get 10-20 days a season here in Norcal, mostly at Tahoe.

Thanks for the input!

Well, since you have both, it should be easy for you determine which YOU prefer. No one is going to be able to answer that question for you except, well... you. Try them both out and go with the ones you prefer for your style, your board, and your boots.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!! If you go with the Burton you should kill yourself now. The Forces are superior on all fronts and will last you longer then the Burton's!!!! I have ridden both in my time, (P1's, C60, Force, and Now the Danny Kass Pro Models) and when it comes to response, Union KILLS IT. Just because the C60 is worth more at the local shop, doesn't mean it is better.
