Flux PR15 vs Union DLX vs Rome S90

Ok, here is my problem and I am really having a hard time choosing between sub $150 bindings.

What I am looking for are bindings that are good for all around, freestyle and doing nice clean runs down groomers when I have the need for some speed. I need them to be fairly durable (last a few years) and be light & comfy(they would last a few years and I don't want bricks on my boots.) Another thing is SMOOTH ratchets. I would like them not to freeze, and be easy to unstrap. Cracking down, I would like to become fast as if not faster than reclining highback users.

When you respond, can you give me not only your choice, but your experience with them and why you did/didn't like them?

Please do not recommend any others that are not on this list as these are the ones I am really torn on choosing. Please help!!

Yea, I know with the other thread, it is just the title was not fitting to what options are now chosen. I had dropped a few and added in a new one.

I suggested the unions. I have been riding my forces for 3 seasons and haven't had any problems. I think their ratchets are smoother than the ones on my 390 bosses too.

Out of the three choices that you mentioned, I would definitely pick the Flux bindings.

I've had quite a few Flux bindings in the past (Titans, SE, RK, Emblems) and they make solid hardware. The ratchets are butter smooth and I have never had a single issue with any of them. It's just a solid, well designed binding.

Union's bindings are good too (I've had the Forces and currently the Flites), but in my opinion, their ratchets aren't as solid as Flux's ratchets, but good none the less.

Alrighty, it seems the poll has come for it to be Flux's. That is why I came here, I was genuinely about to buy the s90's. Also, are you sure they will be good for all mountain and progress-able even though they are on the company's bottom line?

I still have a set of Flux Emblems on my old board (which I use as my baldy board) and they have held up to 4 years of abuse as my rental for friends or my backup (with about 30 days of riding on them each season). Even though my riding has progressed through the years and I've tried different setups, I always still enjoy riding this setup.

Flux makes good bomb proof bindings and they will do what you need them to do.

Flux has the best ratchets out of those 3 for sure. Super smooth, even at the lower end...

I found the jump from Burton freestyles ($120) to Union Forces ($200) was massive. The difference between the bindings was more than I could have imagined.

YOu can check out the buy/sell forum and pick up some mid-high tier bindings for half off. Thats what I would do if I were you. I got some Flux SF45s ($250) for like $140 shipped earlier this year.

I am REALLY looking to get new, just because I know how it was taken care of and things. I also get really personal with my board (Named Ashley) so I like to take care of her. :3 So the Flux PR15s it is. I will start saving now. lol. Also, how light are they from what you guys have felt/know.
