If you want to try the binders before you buy them then demo them from a shop. Many shops offer demo programs for binders as well as boards. Typically with binders the first day's demo charge will be taken off the retail cost of a binder should you decide to buy.
What other forum are you talking about? EL? Yeah they have a giant hard on for anything Burton or Union.
For the time being I will stick to the facts I know and try to curb some of my stronger opinions on the product. And I know that Unions toe straps and ratchets are sub par. Literally everyone else's straps fit more boots and their ratchets release easier.
