Choosing 2013 bindings
 
Hey guys,

I'm stuck between,

- Union Atlas bindings 2013
- Burton Mission bindings 2013
- Union Contact 2013
- Union Forces 2013

It's going on a flow shifty. Size 11 boots, what would you recommend?

Thanks
Dan

If you're talking 12/13 season, I'd suggest the Atlas out of the Union choices.

If you're talking 13/14 season, my personal preference is the Force. It's hard to say, because we don't know what kind of shred you do, or your preference with flex and etc...

Sorry dude,

I'm on about 12/13 season as they're cheaper at the moment. Would you not recommend the Burton Mission then? The Canted footbeds looked good.

And I'm worried about the union toe strap not being the best on the 12/13 version? Do the unions dampen the ride well on the 12/13 season?

I'm a rider looking to progress switch riding and all mountain freestyle, with park involved.

Sorry hopefully a little more information:D

Those are all pretty comparable, I would focus more on what sort of stiffness you want. I'd be leaning for more mid flex if you plan to ride park a lot or are gonna make the whole mountain your park. And also if you can try them on with your boots to see which one fits the best would be ideal.
But honestly I think you'd be happy with any of those you listed.

Maybe also check out the NOW ipo's if you want something that brings something else to the table.

The thing is, I'm buying them 2013 so they're online cheap, not in the shop unfortunately:(

I'm riding thirty two lashed, but you think any of them would be ok?

Which would you choose?

Hard for me to pick for you because I like stiffer high performance bindings, and I no nothing about those bindings and can't be bothered to research them. Nor have I ever ridden Burton or Union bindings let alone those models for that year.
But I guess I'll just say Atlas based on nothing at all.
