Response is good.
Shock absorption is good.
Ratchets freeze up sometimes.

BUT MY GOD THESE THINGS ARE HEAVY.
Want to know why? Because a few of us criticized Union for the toe straps and ratchets and the "OMG UNION IS PERFECT" people like NWO go all ape shit with condescending remarks.

With that said, Unions are super light now. I'm speaking for 2012 models.
