Thanks for the review, Leo. I was considering switching to Unions next season, but now I'll definitely think twice.

The whole line has the same toe strap design

dammit. I hope this is only a 1 year thing. I really liked their older (08 or so) toe straps which were pretty much just a piece of leather. I saw some pics of these new ones and they look awful.

Unfortunate news to hear. I thought the 2011 were a solid product , haven't had any problems with buckles/straps so far. Thanks for the other suggestions, looks like it is time to do some more research and demoing.

Too funny...I find the RK30 is garbage and love the Force. To each their own I guess.

I was looking at the Flux tt30s, SF45s, and the Union Force and Force SL. I've ridden Union for years and really liked em', but mine were made in Italy, much better quality than what they're getting in china, I know flux and Union are both made in China now. Where they're made aside, the tt30s don't have any urethane or dampening other than the foot bed. I got SF45s in the end and like them a lot, took a bit to get them dialed in, but really like the toe cap and the ankle strap. They're really cush and seem to get better each day. I would say the ds45 and sf45 are closer to what the Force is

Thing is, you are talking about different model years. Both the force and RK30 I demoed were 2012.

The toe straps of my 2011 forces fit well with my burton ruler. However the toe strap ratchets could be hard to release at times and make me miss my formulas.
