Hey guys i want to buy a new pair of bindings but i'm not too sure what i want yet. It's either the force SLs or the 390 bosses..

Im mostly a park rider but i tend to ride other trails when im bored. They're both sick park bindings but i figured i'd ask some experts because they're only $20 different in pricing. (both will be 2013 models)

They're gonna go on my arbor blacklist

Edit: They're replacing my Union Forces. I like the forces so that's why im thinking of upgrading to the SLs

We literally already have a Union SL vs Rome thread that I did. It's right above this thread. Check it out:thumbsup::

Long story short, Rome wins over Union.

Thanks for the reply brotha. I looked through your thread before. 390s are sick bindings but I love my forces. I just wanted to know if it's worth upgrading to the SLs or completely changing companies/bindings
From what I learned throughout the ordeal, and from seeing other Union comparison threads, that the 390 Bosses are more flexible than the SLs. I see the SLs being recommended a lot to freeriders because of the stiffness reliability in the pow. The Bosses are pretty flexible, so if you're wanting a more park oriented binding, maybe go with the Bosses. just my two cents

i have the 2013 blacklist with 2012 390 bosses and its a sick setup, i would go with the 390s just because of the comfort, they feel like nothing when you strap in compared to my union forces

I was thinking of going the same route as you. Do you think the bosses do well all mountain?

From the Union Sales Manager, the SL is softer than the Force.

i haven't rode them yet but i believe theyll do just fine if your a park guy riding the occasional trail, they are stiffer than my forces and i could charge any trail on my forces, so theoretically they will be great
