As far as forums go, you can see this forum ranks higher than EL on an international basis and in the US. EL gets a majority of it's traffic from China. Judging by the spam I've seen there, not surprised.

We've already seen this site have a huge influence on a company's bottom line fwiw.
Which is why certain active members who have said shit that would make trolls blush have not been banned. They have clout and industry contacts. It's created an environment where people refer to each other as cumstains and shitdick like a bunch of 8 year olds who have just watched their first rated R movie.

The quality of information on Easyloungin is at LEAST 38% better than the information here. If just a few loungers decided to help out over here that 38% can be yours.

Fact.

Also LOOOOOVE all the links we get when we post...this place is fuckin COAR, brah.

You're saying that people's clout and industry contacts here allow them to say curse words? And that moderators here are afraid to punish them, is that it?

I'm the guy who called someone a "shitdick" in this thread and I'm just your average guy. No industry contacts here, nor do I have any clout, just someone who enjoys snowsliding in the winter time.

We're all big boys here with no apparent need to be overly moderated. Sounds much better than the alternative to me.

Wow.. didnt realize all the hate with Union. I thought I was in the minority..
I've been done with union bindings 3-4seasons ago. Never liked them and always wondered what the hell those fanboys were raving about. They really had nothing extraordinary to offer.

If my wife weren't so frugal, she would have tossed out her union bindings 2 seasons ago also.. She continues to cuss them out every single time she rides. Most of her troubles stem from the toe strap. She had a bit of trouble with the ankle strap initially but I McGyvered the fuck out of them (dont remember what i had to do really) out of the box.


Well, good to know what Union represents. I'll be staying away from them for good this time and make sure friends I know do the same. Anyone want some Union bindings for women(forgot the model)? Hell, I'll even sell them for cheap!

38% eh? Okay. Besides for the fact that this site is eating your lunch, why the fuck start anything?

I'm glad that I didn't choose my Burton Cartels based on what they were like three or four years before I bought them.

How is the product that a company put out in its fourth year indicative of what they put out in their eighth or ninth? That doesn't make sense.

I disliked the Salomon relays I had five years ago, but that wouldn't stop me from considering their product now.

This is hilarious. The sad thing is that Johan has a point. This forum definately has some self appointed experts who give marginal advice at best. Just because you give a couple thousand people bad, uninformed, opinionated advice doesn't mean you are "helping" them.

I've been in this industry my entire life and have never been around so much misinformation as in this particular forum. Unions definately need some updating to the straps and ratchets, but they aren't bad bindings. I would ride any Union over any Flow every day of the week. That's an opinion. Both work, both hold your feet to the board and Union sells better. Those are facts.

While you guys get all worked up over some junior high school pettiness I will sit back laughing. I'll keep chiming in here and there to drop some knowledge and dispel the misinformation occasionally. And I will keep riding my Libs with Flux binders.

In fact I think I'll go ride right now!

Keep the hate flowing!
