Arrow Flow or Union bindings the way to go?

What would you choose if you had the chance to own Flow bindings v.s Union's?

I heard that union has better base plates and gets more stability, however Flow is fast and sporty.

Which is better for the wallet/purse and which is better?

(I have flow flite 3)

I've heard good things about both except that when it comes to Flows, it's a lot about getting used to them and personal preference of how they feel. But in my opinion, I would go with Union just because I've gotten the chance to try a pair from my friends and actually liked the way they felt and responded.

Unions will be the better value in the long run even if the Flows may be quicker or more sporty

well, with the flows, you have that single strap and lock the highback thing. Which i dont really approve of because it adds a lot of weight and they can undo themselves. Id say go for the unions because those things are preached to be rapage freestyle bindings. Id say unions...you might need to climb the price scale in the flows to find a quite qualaty binding because of their system

You are smoking crack. That shouldn't even be a question. Union all the way. Although I don't like the high backs on the RE-union binding I feel like I could snap it in half with one hand. check out the Forces they are made to be a bombproof ride anything binding.

PS This is in the wrong section and should be moved.

flows do not work if trying to get in or out of the bindings in deep pow...flows for groomers only.

I picked up a pair of unions when my Burtons broke last year. They really nice. I will probably get another pair this year.

Union makes some fantastic bindings, while Flow bindings blow. This is firsthand info. on both.

if you like your toe straps over the end of your boots, you'll be s.o.l. with flows. i'll be the first to say neither, rome.

Another worthless opinion: Union.

Flows one advantage? They are faster off of the lift. Until they break, and you miss half a day in a shop getting them repaired. IMHO, Unions are a superior product in both performance and durability. Leave the "sporty" things for the Spice Girls.
