Are you a park rider? jibs, rails, kickers? Are you all mountain riding?

ive ridden both, so ill chime in.

they feel sort of similar to me. both have more of a medium flex, and are responsive. the straps on the unions are much more comfortable for me. burtons straps give me a weird pressure point. i personally like the idea of being able to adjust my heelcup instead of having a one piece baseplate/heelcup combo as well.

both are good for freeride or park. i prefer the unions over the cartels.

That was my choice between these to pick binding for this season. I got the Union Force, absolutely love them , great feel thru pow and jib. Even cool green color

I'm preparing my riot shield to duck for cover from all the Unioners that are about to riot in here against Burton

I have the 2010 Flow NXT-FSE bindings on my 07 Shaun White 158cm Board

That last comment was made to point out that we have a similar setup

I'm not a fan of pretty much anything Burton does but the Cartels have been my favourite freestyle binding for about 5 years now.

i have the est cartels and union forces. i like them both a lot. the forces are more cushy and the straps stay put. the cartels are lighter and easier to adjust and mount. both work really really good with the boards i use. capita, dwd, burton
