I've had nothing but problems with my Raiden Pushers. The hardware just rattles itself loose and you either have to constantly tighten them or risk losing pieces. The insert hardware sucks and the discs will shit themselves quickly. If you do any jibbing or park riding, they will bake themselves. I tried two different pairs. They just can't stand up to the abuse of jibbing. Maybe I do more laps than others but I've never had a problem with Union or Tech Nine just falling apart.
Tech Nine has some shit feel to them even though they work alright. The mounting discs on my MFM's weren't quite perfectly circular which made mounting them a huge bitch. They also feel cheap, particularly the ratchets and ladders and the action of ratchets reflects this. The Baltimore Toe caps are sick, though. If you can figure out how to frankenstein them onto another binding go for it.
Union is good for durability but their features suck (bad toe caps, bad ratchet action, pretty vanilla response, no canting options). The best ones are definitely the Contact Pro although I have never tried the Flite. I have Rome Targas now, and they are a bitch to get set-up but once they are dialed in they are sweet.
I've heard good things about Ride, too and people really seem to like Flow and Flux. I'd steer clear of Raiden and TechNine and only take Union if you find a killer deal. I don't really care for Burton because they are overpriced but people seem to like them.
