Default Binding question history of a few Brands

Hi

I've been out of snowboarding for about 4-5 years and just finally got back into it,things have changed so much.

made it on the Hill last night and wow I have rust to shake off

I'm looking for some info on a few brands I keep seeing that I never remember when I was really into the sport when I was younger

I really need new bindings,my k2 bindings have the footbed molded into the bindings

Can someone explain when the switch came to make a footbed adjustable


unionWhen did this company come around-What's it's partner company(Burton-ride)

How's the quality of this brand

Rome-???

Technine ???

Nitro

Ltd

Any info on these brands would be great

union Started 6 years ago. Fairly good durability. Ride is ok, some rave, I think they're a little overrated. No partner, they're old Drake designers

Rome- 2001, Targas and 390's are very popular and built well.

Technine Started in Beaver Creek of all places. Been around a long time and invented the lifetime warranty on baseplates. Quality is on the up, not quite up to par yet, but close.

Nitro Raiden for bindings. I have no idea how long they have existed as bindings. They make a really good binding and are probably the most underrated binding manufacturer out there.

Ltd Don't even worry about them. Low end. Really low end.

Union is "meant" to be with Capita boards. Both brands are under the C3 umbrella.
