    Posted: Oct/26/2006 at 12:38am
Donald Says: I ride these from last season and I like them. They are some of the most durable bindings I have ever ridden, and they also have some pretty cool options on them. With a convertible toe strap to keep your foot comfy, magnesium buckles to drop some weight, a strong ratchet and a wide heel cup to fit some bigger-shelled boots easily, who can complain? I compare these bindings to the famous Burton Cartel Bindings.

the forces may be the best binding ever created.  they are 10 time better than any burton binding or any others.  the king of binders, union force.

I was hoping for a more in depth review of these bindings since they're rated #1.

Great that it's comparable to the Cartels of BURTON
but i don't know how those ride.

The above are thinking the same thing?

theyre a medium stiff binding.  not STIFF and not soft.  the baseplate is fairly stiff and the highbacks are nice and supportive.  they rate them at a 7 and i tend to mostly agree with that.  6 or 7 probably, in general.

solid damp baseplate.  feels solid under foot, and damp with the multi layers of padding, both on the top and between the baseplate layers.  i prefer these to any burton baseplate, personally.

medium flex highback when twisting, but pretty stiff straight back for great response.  stock forward lean is pretty mellow but you can also crank them up pretty far, so it covers whatever forward lean you like to use.

comfortable leather straps.  best yet.

strong magnesium buckles.

adjustable bombproof heelcup.  center your boot over your boards waist independent of adjusting the baseplate position, so you can center your boot and also micro-adjust your stance width/setback with the mounting disk.

dupont plastics pretty much dont snap.  ive tested this many times.

value.... for 199 you get a bombproof super solid binding.  compared to a lot of other brands this is a better bang for your buck.

resale value.... forces are hot.  people want them.  you dont have to offload them for super cheap just to get rid of them when youre done.

Yes thats a solid setup.  I rode some Lashed last season and they were great boots.  I have Forces now and i love them.  As long as the boots/bindings fit you well, its a good combo.

UNION - Best Bindings Ever
I ride with 2008-2009 model and they are just great - strong , responsive, solid ...
If someone remember this year UNION FORCE was most selling bindings. So no need to talk more - over 100 reviews in this site .The next year was almost same
I have friend ho ride Union Contact with 32 boot and there is no problem with that. Union as very adjustable and comfortable .
... and like i say in the begining >>
