Awesome advice.

Hahaha...this place is turning into a joke. Anti-Union flamers unite!!! Remember when all the cool people use to rally behind hating Burton. Union must be the worst brand on the planet to have so many people riding them.

Well to get the topic off flaming and immaturity. I appreciate a reps response about the Atlas's which i'm actually looking into getting myself as an all mountain freestyle binding but more so just all mountain.

Well since I started this I will also finish it. I appreciate all the help (mostly) from everyone. I still think Union makes a great binding and I would not at all write them off. I also think Flux has done a great job. I've done plenty of research on the two companies and that's why I narrowed it down to the two. Rome has helped me out a lot and I now realize that they do a great job with their company and have great customer service (I've sent them emails and they respond very promptly with great advice). They will also be taken into consideration. However, the advice to get Burton bindings went in one ear and out the other as that will never happen...

Since we are completely off my binding topic I will just say go Never Summer and boo Volcom because they beat NS in snowboarder magazine's battle of the brands which was complete horse shit.

Union makes a great binder, just not well recieved by this group of forum jockeys. Check around and you will find other forums full of equally knowledgeable people who rave about the good points of the Union design. PERSONAL PREFERENCE.

If you want to try the binders before you buy them then demo them from a shop. Many shops offer demo programs for binders as well as boards. Typically with binders the first day's demo charge will be taken off the retail cost of a binder should you decide to buy.

What other forum are you talking about? EL? Yeah they have a giant hard on for anything Burton or Union.

For the time being I will stick to the facts I know and try to curb some of my stronger opinions on the product. And I know that Unions toe straps and ratchets are sub par. Literally everyone else's straps fit more boots and their ratchets release easier.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
