Default Binding suggestions?

Hello all, wanted to ask your opinions on a set of bindings (end of season prices)

it's for a prior powstick with solly malamute boots. I know nothing about binding brands besides that the flux dmcc/sf45 are sold out everywhere =[
I need a size large, preferably a pretty stiff binding, cushioning doesn't matter, and preferably pretty durable too.

Anyone have some recommendations? If I can't find any stuff on sale I think I might just go with the dmcc next season.

oh and I'm in alberta, for shipping location reference lol.

Too bad on the Flux SF45's, from what I have heard people love the Union forces I personally have never tried them but they are Unions #1 binding for 7 years now so that must mean something. Im sure if you ask someone can easily feed you tons of great things about the forces. Im using the SF45's atm and they are dope im not surprised they are sold out.

Im quite satisfied with my El-Hefes performance in this season. Its too early to say sth about its durability but so far so good. I may also recommend CO2 for smooth responsive and solid freeriding.

Id strongly suggest you to demo the bindings before purchase if possible. Hope this helps

Union SL if you can get them in your size. I was trying to get those but I couldn't get them in my size. Ride Maestro is also said to be really good. I just ordered a pair of those. It's supposed to be a slightly softer version of the El Hefe. Just as responsive though.

thanks for the suggestions guys, at this point I'm pretty much just going to take a pick from any one in stock in about 2 weeks when I get my pay.

I've had good a good experience with Backcountry.com. They ship off their products quickly and it's free also. Not a bad deal at all. I know their stock is dwindling though. It's good to check there often because things pop up that weren't there before in a matter of days.
