Default Unheard of Union limited edition bindings

Anyone have any experience with these Unions?

The highback looks SUPER high!

Wow, these look like any other pair of unions that I've seen, but in black. Are these the 07,08,09,10 or 11 model? I never can tell.

2012 Model.

Stage II from the Force Baseplate , Asym straps, Team Highback.

Best Guess is, they'll probably ride most similar to the force or data because of the baseplate, the straps should be MEGA comfy, and I have no idea about the highback.

So they're probably like a souped up Union Force....

Those ones are the Union Holden collaboration. Union dropped four collaboration bindings this year: Danny Kass (peace binding - based off the flight base), Capita (Ultrafear - based on the contact base), Holden (based on the force base), and the Pabst Blue Ribbon (based on the contact). All have the same team highback and gigi strap.

I actually just received my PBR bindings today. Just a beautiful binding to hold. There were just 168 PBR bindings made this year. Nothing much to say about them, they look and feel like Union bindings. I really do like the new gigi strap this year (feels solid).

Also the new Union Atlas look amazing. I checked them out in the store and the purple ones are some of the nicest bindings I have ever seen. They are so solid. However, it doesn't beat having one of only 168 PBR bindings.

Hopefully it by the end of the season I can pick one up on sale. But then again, if I do buy it; im most likely going to end up mounting my board in bindings to my wall (like art).
