I'm currently riding the Rome Artifact...
I'm currently riding the Rome Artifact 1985 reverse cam. I can't decide if I want to go with the Union Forces or Union Contacts... Most of my riding will be east (ice) coast parks...
Both seem like really sick bindings..
Well the Contacts will allow your board to flex more naturally seeing as only 33% of the binding is actually touching the board, especially with a reverse camered deck. But if you are riding the ice coast then maybe you wanna get something a lil more solid on your feet, ie the Forces or even Data's. The Contacts are nice and flexy, but still give you a good solid hold. The highback on the Force's are stiffer than the Contacts, and the straps are aswell. I have last years Contacts and I love them, but I mainly ride park. I would say get the Forces, just to have a lil more stability and control. But really you will be stoked on either one. Hope this helps
with what ur lookin for,, go with the Forces bro,, this binding is super friendly and durable wherever you go on the mountain,, Go Get IT!!..//
