Don't be too leary of the Union toe strap. They've refined the shape for this season (similar to last season's, but with better hold), and Unions are BOMBER. No tooless adjustment doo-dads to break. No auto tech that saves you a few seconds when strapping in, but is just one more thing waiting to break. True, they don't have canting, but I recommend trying cnted bindings before you buy. They can definitely be a love it/hate it thing.
Why aren't you looking at Burtons? Malavitas, Cartels, or Missions might all work well for you.
