Yep, some people just can't accept change. Even if it's a good thing.
Extremo, I honestly would have expected you to support Union's decision to do something about their toe strap ratchets if you like the brand so much.
Or maybe they should paint "PUSH HERE" on the back of the ratchets and "PULL HERE" ON THE FRONT... but then paint chips off.
So, that wouldn't be a solution.
Adding a release lever will make EVERYONE IN THE SNOWBOARDING WORLD happy, or at least ok, with Union bindings. That will also help people like us because we wouldn't have to waste our time on the forums explaining to everyone who complains the easiest way to release them.
Besides, it's Union- whatever they do is still going to be the same good indestructible shit, so there's nothing to worry about!
Except the paint.
