Technine Yucky Charms Vs. Union Data. which one?
alright im stumped right now as to whether i should buy the technine yucky charms bindings or the union data bindings. the technine seem to have more support with the scrub hooks on the highback, but the union seems to be the comfier one.
anyone have any experience with these bindings or any opinions?
please help me decide yo.

From what I have read Technine bindings have a tendency to fall apart quickly. I have heard nothing but great reviews on Union bindings. I would definilty go with the Union Data, especially if they are more comfortable.

true. but i hear the scrub hooks are very useful.

I have to say Union make very good quality bindings and the Data are no exception. However, I have not heard much about the latest Technine bindings, but over the past couple of years Technine's quality has defenitly gone down. I'd say it's safer to go with the Datas

once again: trueee.
thanks guys

but yo i also hear the datas have problems with the toe caps..

It's like Fisher Price bindings with Wal Mart store brand they both suck.

I disagree with BA on this one... I love my Data's. Yes the toe cap issue pissed me off with my last set of boots but even with that they were the most comfortable bindings i've used. I haven't had a set of tech-nines in years and the last time I did I regretted buying them.

Any reason it's just between those two? Are they the only options or are you willing to look at other models/brands?

I personally like Ride, and I'm trying some k2's out next season.

What about next years Cobrasharks, Malavitas, or this years Infidels? (They all have "scrubhooks")
