Default Union Force sizing help

Hey guys, I've got size 11 Burton hail boots with shrinkage tech so its "supposed" to be around a size 10 boot girth. Would I be better off with a M/L or L/XL??
As always, thanks in advance

Go with the L/XL's.

Alright, and I've read HORRIBLE reviews on the 2012 models due to the new and "improved" toe strap. But I've read from you that they fixed it since the demo versions, would it be best to buy the 2011's or get the 2012's?

That depends. If you want more of a traditional over the top of the boot strap, then last years model will be fine. If your going to cap your straps, the new ones are your choice.
Yes, some people didn't like the sample/demo toe strap that was out. We rebuilt it before production, making two sizes of it. It came out real nice.

Did you happen to make the ankle strap wider than the 2011's?

Fatter ankle strap? That would require more thought from Union. All they do is release a new binding every couple years and poorly redesign a toe strap. 2012 Forces, apart from the toe strap, will look nearly if not completely identical to the first year they made them.

Nose Dradamous, my question still stands...is the ankle strap any wider/fatter for 2012?

Every 2012 model above the $200 Force (MC, SL, Asadachi, Atlas, Contact Pro) has NEW direct-connect ankle straps featuring a wider tapered 3D multi-layered strap core. The Force does not.

I have never put a pair of bindings through so much abuse and had them come out looking as good as my Force's. I don't think I'd change a thing on them, just a great set of bindings overall.
