Union does not make a cost effective all mountain binding. To get anything actually stiff enough you have to get either Chargers or MC's.

Get SF45's. Or for other optoins, Flow NX2-AT's, Burton Cartel, K2 Company, or Salomon Hologram.

Yup, adding another thought to the mix here. Burtons. The ratchets are great, and the toe straps are more of a cup.

*insert bad asian voice* Me rikey!

I wanted unions before but checked them all out and ended up with some super stiff Burton C60's...

Knowing how and how much you ride, this makes me want to put them to the test. But first, do you officially rep them in any other way? Sponsored? Sales rep? Lol, I had to ask...

regardless of if he's sponsored by them (yet) Cro is not a shill.

if the choice is between flux and union its flux all day every day. union bindings are a complete joke - at this point their toestraps (NOT a capstrap) is about 4-5 years behind the rest of the industry.

Union = FAILURE AT LIFE

nah the only company i officially ride for is never summer and i unofficially rep angry snowboarder and snug life ha.

i will say that i haven't ridden those flux's the entire time these past couple years. they are more of my back up for when whatever newer bindings i had broke and had nothing else to ride. originally i only bought them cause some near by shop was closing down and i got them and a pair of celsius boots for about $50. since then though i always seem to fall back on them at least a month or so of solid riding every season.

the model i have are called the super emblems from before they came out with all this letters and numbers nonsense.

Thanks for the full disclosure... and I def never thought nor was I insinuating that you're a shill. I'm peeping some 2013 RK 30s for a really good price and am seriously thinking of pulling the trigger.

I'm rocking some 2012 rk30s on my park setup. They're comfy and offer great flex. For a urathane hi back they have good response. That beig said I don't think anyone would tell you to get them with out knowing what kind of riding you're doing. The tt30s are another option with good flex, but stiffer than the rk30s.
