Apparently I ride harder or hit bigger stuff. Cause my knees kill me after a day in sub par dampened bindings. And I ride $400 boots.
Don't listen to shit-for-brains here. Ratchets have been upgraded.

Please, explain to me how having solid plastic from heel to board provides any dampening. Cause it doesnt. This dampening issue is not something I've recently decided exists. I noticed it when I OWNED Datas. The bushings do not dampen for shock, the deaden chatter a bit and promote better board flex.

And do you all realize you are bitching and whining to me for simply calling a toe strap, ratchet, and one of their frames dampening crap. I havent said the entire binding sucks once. And again, I have owned 3 different pairs and ridden 2 more on more than one occasion. I have more than 200 days in Unions.

By the way the toe ratchet on my 09 Contacts is the same as on the 2013 Force. But the Force is milled out. Which does nothing to change the functionality. It works the exact same way and still performs sub par compared to the rest of the industry.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

What do you not understand?? It works "subpar" for YOU. Obviously it doesn't work subpar for a vast majority of riders, or they would choose to ride something else.

And although you may not have called out Union or said they suck, your butt buddy went above and beyond the call of duty, and I consider you two basically the same person.

BTW, fwiw, I set up a customer's Contact Pros on his Skunk Ape today. Rotated the highbacks, dialed in his 32 boots, the whole shebang. It took me less than 30 minutes. I dunno what you were doing fiddling around with a pair of bindings for 2 hours. If you couldn't figure them out in 120 minutes, clearly they weren't the bindings for you.

Gotta step yo game up son.
