Default Union's or Flux's?

I am in search of bindings. I have decided I want Union's or Flux's.

Which bindings do you like better and why?

Should I still be considering other binding companies? and why?

Thanks!

Personally i would look at more companies than 2. You didn't even state what you wanted them for so why would you pick those companies?

What if the 2 best options for what you wanted were made by other companies? What style/where do you ride?

If you just want something from either of those companies just pick based on color lol.

You like your Romes over your force's? Why?

Also I'm looking for an all mountain binding.

I have both the flux sf45, and union custom house pbr.

I will admit the union rackets are just awful, and the toe strap will fit some boots amazingly and some boots just won't fit. I have nike kaiji and they actually fit the toe straps really well. Even with all the union flaws, the union bindings are actually my go to bindings. I just like the feel of the contacts binding.

Flux bindings are super comfy, they kind of feel like pillow on your feet.

Awesome I was hoping to find someone like you who has both.
Ok so if the Flux's are so comfy what makes you choose union>flux
They ride better? Is the only downfall te toe strap? And what do you mean by the rackets? The cinching mechanism?

You may want to consider something with canting. Last year I got a set of ride capos with canting and it was a "holly shit" moment in riding. I was not sure about it and it did not make me better by any means but it feels so much more comfortable! Just saying.
