Really depends on you, but the Contact Pro's will be slightly softer so its your more popular park binding for sure.

I bought these bindings a few weeks ago and they are INSANE! I used to ride Burton Cartels which I thought were pretty solid but after riding a pair of Unions I wont ever go back. Super comfy fit, no pressure points, and really light weight. To be honest it's the sort of binding that you strap on and forget it's there. Locked my boots in and let my board flex true. The only little problem I had is the toe ratched was a little stiff to release the strap but it's not something that could stop anyone from loving this binding. I love you Union!
It really depends on your skill level/style and height/weight. This is a mid stiff binding so it wont be too easy to tweak anything unless you're a little heavier or just really aggressive. I personally use my SL's for everything on the mountain including park.

What an Amazingly Light & Responsive Binding!!! CNC Whaaaaaat! How can a binding be so extremely comfortable yet so responsive to all mountain riding. The Force Sl binding continues to blow my mind every time I strap in.
I love them so much I want another pair for my Charlie Slasher!!!!!!!
now i have burton missions, and im looking for a softer binding. are these flexible enough to tweak grabs easily?

I ordered the black and white Sl's. The binding appears to be an opaque almost clear material with white paint over it. Right out of the box I noticed a spot where the white paint was peeling off exposing the clear/opaque plastic. If the entire material was white this would not be a problem, but I expect after 10-20 days the bindings will look like something from a second hand store. If you don't want to look like the guy with new gear this year, get the Union Sl's.
Update: I replaced the white bindings with the black/red Sl's. They seem to be made of black base material. I have had no problems with any paint peeling or defects like the white pair had. They are light and responsive. Just be aware of the possible problem if choosing the white Sl's.
note: I ordered 4 board/binding/boot sets this Christmas. Dogfunk has been exceptional with handling any problems I had. They truly go above and beyond anyone out there. I will never buy boarding equipment from anyone else for now on!
Help! I'm trying to decide between the 390's and the Union Force-SL. I have a huge,wide foot (11.5W). I have Northwave Decade Boots. I really just want an All Mountain Binding that fits the Decades well. I have an older pair of Rome Targas and didn't really love them. But the 390's seem really different, especially the ankle strap, but I've hard nothing but great things about Union Force's. I hope I get alot of feedback. I'm torn. They both would look sick on my board. I just need to know comfort wise. Help! Rome 390's or Union Force SL's?!

You can't go wrong with either binding imo. The Union Force Sl's are very comfortable as are the Rome 390's. The Rome 390's toe buckle is easier to release and seems easier to get tight. The Union Force Sl's felt more responsive for me than the 390's. The toe strap ratchet is not as easy to release and when tightening it takes some finesse to get where I want it. The response of the force Sl's is what my deciding factor was, and I am very happy with them. I just wish Union used a toe buckle that was more like the ankle.
note: I am wearing a size 11 Burton Grail this season, which is not as stiff as your Northwaves. Your boots with the Sl's will be even more responsive. The Romes (less stiff) and your boots would be closer to what my grail/union combo is.
Enjoy the season!

I dont know if I would say 'better', but I would say lighter and made a lil different. With the original Force's they are a lil on the heavy end, but with the Force-SL you will not notice that weight. Def not as light as the Contact's, but very close. So really you're getting a lighter more free styled package out of this Force. But really, its all the same when you get Union. Meaning you cant buy a shitty product if they dont make a shitty product lol. If you ride a lot of park and you dont wanna get the Contacts, then get these. If you ride pretty much everything, then go for the reg Forces. Hope this helps bro
