I may have been seen trashing Union bindings recently. I wouldn't consider myself a guru wizard or anything of the sort...just a long time snowboarder. I bought Union Contacts for my 9 yr old (now 10) son and in less than 30 days of use they are falling apart. To me they feel like cheap plastic department store bindings. Now Union is replacing several broken parts at no cost so good on them for their customer service but that's about all I will give them.
Also +1 on the Rome Targa. I run them on my Heritage having moved them over from a Lib Tech T.Rice. Great hard charging all mountain binding. I wish my local shop was still a dealer but they dropped them last year for some reason.
