union force rocks, that is all.

Last I checked, getting the placement centered and correct width is part of setting up your bindings as it has to be set to the board. You fail again!

In short, I would put more weight on the opinion of someone who uses a product regularly, over someone who tried and didn't like it. Especially one who writes a couple of sentences and just says "sucks" . That's not even constructive.
Bro, I've had enough instances of Union being weak.

1. The set I rode. Yeah, used them once (8 hours), but that was enough to realize I wasn't about to deal with the issues. (last year 2012)
2. Walked into bs Zumiez out of curiousity and had to hear the sales guy preach about Union quality and no toe strap issues. Pulled one off the shelf and it locked up (last month)
3. Complaints from multiple people on the forum and other online reviews

Again, I'm not knocking you because you should ride what you like and works for you.
