Union Force bindings are hard to find?

Why is it that I'm having a hard time finding Union Force bindings in a size L? I wear a size 10 Nike Zoom Force boot and am thinking I need a L. Would I be correct in assuming that? Are Union Forces always this hard to find or did I just pick a bad time of the season to look?

BTW, I ride a GNU Carbon Credit and am a pretty new rider. Would these bindings go well with this board?

Take your $200 and get Flux TT30's or Raiden Zeros. Both better bindings than the Forces.

Thanks for your response. In the following thread, you say that the Forces are equal to, or possibly even greater than the TT30's. Your opinion has apparently changed?

I feel like they are hard to find. I have yet to come across a brick and mortar store that carries Union. Or Flux for that matter.

This is why it's been so hard for me to make a decision on bindings. I have seen the Rome Targa bindings in person though. Very quality.

I personally prefer the Force over the TT30. They're more responsive and easier to get in and out of. And yeah they're hard to find this time of year in local shops but you'll prob find quite a few online. You'll need a M/L for a size 10.

A M/L or a L/XL? From the sizing charts, size 10 boot is the limit for the M/L size.

Also, how do you guys think the Burton Cartels compare to the bindings mentioned previously in this thread? I'm about to say screw it and buy some of those. At least I can find them in the size/color combination I want.

They are easy to find early to mid season. The Forces are usually the first to go.

A shop near where I live (Milwaukee) has Union Force and Force SL in stock, so it may just be the area you're in. Another shop has the MC's so... yah, not much help I know, but they're still available.

Most stores are probably out now. Im not sure if they continue production this late into the season, but you could look into the buy and sell forums here and probably find some newer pairs for sale.
