Why is every hating on Union? I have a pair of forces and besides the toe strap riding up after a few runs, I love these bindings. Can some one educate me? (This is not one of those posts)

Here's some knowledge.

Union bindings have terrible baseplate padding, wimpy highbacks, crappy ratchets, and terrible straps. Sure compared to bindings 6 years ago they're decent, but it's nearly 2013 and bindings have vastly improved while union has stubbornly stayed behind

For comparison, what bindings do you ride?

from my experience, unions are bulletproof. comfy straps, great highback, plenty of padding and good board feel. i'm also not a fanboy, have ridden malavitas for going on three years. but before that had a great, trusty pair of forces.

if your union toestraps fit your boots it is only by luck.

they have the shittiest cap design in the industry - hands down.

they refuse to innovate or change this because they ordered them in such a large quantity that they're still selling product from 5+ years ago.

if bright colors distract you then you might be stupid enough to buy these.

and now we know that they use pathetic spam attempts to market their shithole product. fuck union. fuck capita. this shit if for little kids who know no better and are financed by mommy.

What the hell? What a weird "contest." Nothing about that makes sense. So I could just post some shit about any brand in any thread and I win? stupid...

Anyways, I'd also like to hear some opinions on superior bindings. I bought a pair of Union Forces last year to upgrade some 9 year old Flow bindings that were horrible in every possible way (other than getting strapped in quickly). Granted I was replacing VERY old bindings, but I thought they were great. Later in the year I also picked up some Cartel EST's for my other board and I didn't feel like they were noticeably better in any way. Maybe I need to try both pairs on the same board, but I was completely happy with both bindings.
