New Bindings?

I'm in the market for new bindings this year. I ride an 09 skate banana and take it all over the mountain. I want somthing comfortable, responsive, and light. I also plan on doing a little more park riding this year. I was thinking union forces. Can anyone persuade me to get somthing else?

Nothing wrong with Union forces...

I do all mountain riding and venture into the park every once and a while and I love my Ride NRc bindings. Feels like your floating on a cloud with these bindings. The toe strap is made of some sort of gel which makes it super sticky and you don't have to tighten it a ton for it to be tight. They also upgraded ratchet straps on this binding as of last season and they work flawlessly unless you tighten yourself to much into the binding.

The Ride NRc's are slightly heavy though

I got a pair of Forces this year and have put 2 days on them. I like them, they are nice. They were not "amazing" to me. The staps are comfy and the response is good as well as flex. I do not like the janky toe straps though! Went back to my Republics last weekend and today and liked the toe cap much better!

For those criteria I'd go Union Force or Burton GMP Cartel. The Cartels are lighter and more responsive, but the Unions are a little softer for a lot of jibbing. Both are in the same price range $200-230. I hear Rome 390s are very nice for park, street and pipe riding, but can't say from personal experience.
