Default Sizing issue for Union force or burton cartels

I want to buy either some Union forces or Burton cartels.
I am currently using Chris Bradshaw 32 lashed boots in size 10.5
What size is going to work best in either binding and what are the pros and cons of moving up to large.
I'm currently using Rome 390 bosses in large/xl but at times find them unresponsive for quick turns and carves
I am in 3rd year of riding in New zealand

Ok thanks...reasons for large over medium... I have to buy online and online help at dogfunk reckoned I should go with medium for better response...I'm not disagreeing with you , just want some feedback on your argument for the large size ? At this stage union forces are my pick

how much do you weigh?

The l/xl are stiffer in the highback more fiberglass for unions.


I dont' like burton bindings, they are hard to center with a 10.5.

I wear the vans cirro and aura in 10.5 and they fit fine.

The union bindings are pretty adjustable.

Thirty two boots are high volume boots unless they changed them.

On the unionare usually have it set at "1" on the heal cup. it can be put in more for smaller sizes.

Yeah the guy from dogfunk said the 10.5s will fit in and the mediums will be a bit softer and forgiving.guess I could go try boots on unions in local store but they sooooo expensive here in nz. I've bought my boots last year and a new lib tech banana there this year so I could just be straight up with them and say just wana try em on

If you are going to use the cartels, it's better off that you stick to a Medium binding. The large will be too big for the 32 lashed 10.5 boot and you boot will moving around a lot.

I'm a 9.5 32 focus and I tried to center it on a Large cartel and it was not very good. The M cartels were a much better fit and still had more room for a bigger boot.

if you are using it for your fun board then look at the union contact bindings.
