Better question Shredlife, old pal, can I ask what you have contributed to DayQuill's search for bindings?

Do you have some bindings to recommend?

If they're 390s, maybe you should have spent more time helping another member set his up correctly and recommending those than shaking your fist at people trying to help.

You're like an old man yelling at a tree right now, dude, simmer down.
You've already lost enough of your day over this, I hope you don't lose any of your night. Pleasant dreams!

Recommend some bindings plz.

No one is butthurt.

Although, if I had to choose, I'd say the kook who wears Arcteryx is the one who was butthurt.

Yikes! Who's spending $600+ on a jacket that barely reaches their waist?

He and I appear to approach sliding sideways on snow from VERY different places... I hope that his way is as much fun as mine.

I rode Unions for 3 years. They suck. My roommate rode them for 4. He's over them and will never go back. Hows that for personal and friend usage info?

Sigh...you didn't answer Matty's question.

1. When did you stop using Unions? When did your roommate stop using Unions? Last year? The year before that?
2. Why did you stop using them?

If this is how you answer questions and give feedback, you won't last long at any job that requires R&D or "Journalism". Does someone else write for you? The person who shows up here and talks about Unions seems like, a bitter, angry, tiny, tiny man. The person who talks about other things seems less so.

Do two people use this account? If I were someone wanting to know about Unions, I would find your opinions unreliable.

Hell if you want I'll adjust the whole thing all the way forward tomorrow so there is more ladder and take another pic. The strap will still stick out that far off the end of the boot.

Here's the other side.
Umm...how 'bout putting the toe straps in the back slots rather than the front, then they might fit right. derp

"Sucks" isn't very informative, and it's also very subjective. If you don't like the toestraps, or feel that Unions have too little baseplate padding, why not just say that?

I am not a fan of K2 bindings. I think that the auto toestrap, hinged straps, and canted footbeds are overly engineered and just more stuff to have to fiddle with. I don't like rear-entry bindings, as in my experience it makes bindings less responsive. Tool-less adjustability is nice, but some of the solutions that I've seen make me wonder how durable they are.

None of that equates to a justifiable statement that one design/engineering approach is "better" than another. It just means that my understanding of a better solution is dictated by my experiences as a rider - as are yours.

Investing in the latest version of snowboarding fanboyism (which started 25 years ago as "Burton vs. Sims") is just so much bullshit. I don't care what gear you ride. I am curious about honest, insightful feedback about why gear has or hasn't worked for somebody. We are not defined as riders by the gear that we ride. We are defined by the stoke that we share. 90% rider, 10% board. ALWAYS.
