Question Union sizing dilemma?!?

Hey every one, I'm contemplating getting some union bindings for my 159 park pickle. I've got 9.5 sized boots (vans hi standards) and I'm not sure to go the the L/XL or the M/L. Also what model unions would you guys recommend? I live in Australia and I will be riding mostly park but would like the option to go all mountain
also does anyone know where I can get an affordable pair with cheap shipping .
Thanks guys

Are you able to try on a pair at a local shop? You're right on the edge for needing a L/XL and the foot print of your boot is going to determine which one you will need.

I'm not familiar with the foot print of your boot but if it's not a large soled boot, you should get a M/L Union Force. But if money is no thing, get the Union Force MC

No unfortunatley I live on the west coast of Australia and we don't have snow, therefore we don't have snowboarding shops, so that's why I need to do my research . As I can't try any of the gear on and if I buy it over east than were talking $900 for a lib tech/ gnu board and around $500+ for bindIngs (super expensive). That's why Ive been trying to source my gear of the net.

Here's what you can try

Take a measurement of the sole on your boots, width being the most important, and either post it or call up Union. I have a pair of 2010 Union Force bindings but they're L/XL. I'm sure someone here has a M/L pair that could get you a measurement.

i have a pair of size 9 vans and they fit in all medium bindings i have tried on so far. i believe the only difference between a 9 and a 9.5 is the size in the liner and not the actual boot so if thats true you should fit perfectly in a medium.
