You work in a shop, yet it takes you 2 hours to figure out how to use a screwdriver to adjust your bindings.

Anyway, OP, grab what you feel comfortable getting. Don't overlook companies just because some people can't see the forest through the trees.

DayQuill...I think C3Shop is working on some new stuff, but if you ARE interested in Unions and don't wanna break the bank I'd try the DLXs in the sample section.

They're an amazing binding at a criminal price. I'd sell you mine but I still use them. Don't listen to all the silliness about the toestrap. The cored out ones they use are JUUUUST fine.

Just fine is worse than great. And Flux's, Burtons, Rides, K2's, Salomon's, and Raidens are great.

Arguing semantics are we now?

Also, kevin for a guy who works in a shop you sure talk a lot of shit about the product you carry. Yes, there are some brands that people are not as stoked on as others, but to outright say that what your shop carries is shit...is not kosher.

Amazing > Great.

**throws down gauntlet**

Here's how the DLX toe strap works.

1. You put it over your toe
2. It stays in place, over your toe box until you release it.

Does it work differently on other bindings? If others offer a toe toe massage....or better *wink wink** sign me up.

I've been using Union bindings for several years now and dig them. They've been really comfortable and realiable, I haven't even broken a ladder strap! I'm sure you can find some below $200. I recommend Forces or Atlas.

I didn't make the decision to carry them did I? And I sell Formulas before Forces without saying a single negative thing about either binding. They're better. Same for Atlases which have less tech and cost $40 more. Why buy Contacts when I sell Hurrithanes. More tech in those too and $20 cheaper. Contact pros are the only thing I'll sell, and solely cause they're fucking light as shit. And for the record I like the way those ride, toe strap/ratchet as exceptions of course.

Also talking shit and giving facts are not the same thing. I tell people exactly what I say here. But with a more diplomatic tone.

Kevin,
What "more tech" do the K2 bindings have? I rode Formulas and Hurrithanes at a demo last spring. Formulas were ok IMO, did not like the Hurrithanes, but that's just my preference.

Canted footbeds, ankle strap hinge, 3 pin ratchets, on the fly ramp adjustment, and my apparent favorite, all tool less.
