In any case, the Chargers might be very well be the stiffest Union binding (note that I did not claim otherwise), but they sure as hell are not the stiffest bindings in the market.
The Chargers are def a stiff binding. They don't use the Atlas baseplate, they use the SL baseplate with is one of the stiffest I've ridden. They're not on the level of stiffness of the Ride El Heffe but pretty close. I wish I had gotten them over the SL's. The SL highback is just a little soft for being a strictly freeride binding. Still rips though.

Nidecker Carbons. I use an old version of these on my very stiff Palmer Centric. Nidecker Snowboards - Carbon Black/Orange

I've used them on everything from icy midwest groomers to Chamonix off piste. Stiff bindings are great but overkill if you ride a more flexy board.

I've ridden two pairs of Nidecker bindings... one was the 800, and the the other was 900 Carbons(?) back around 2005-2007 era. These were very good bindings with an extra thick eva foam pad under the binding (so much so that they came with longer mountining screws). Stiff, responsive and damp. I would recommend Nidecker over the Catek Freeride 2 Pro Evo as they are a better mix of performance and ergonomics/comfort.

The charger uses the atlas stage III base made with carbon injected.

The sl base material changed this current year to no carbon injected b/c of the charger to better diversified b/t the product lines. It is the same base model just no carbon.

2013 charger binding atlas base III = 2012 SL atlas base III ( both carbon injected)

2013 Atlas binding base III = 2013 SL atlas base III (no carbon injected)

I have the 2012 SL. I love the carbon injected baseplate, super stiff and responsive. I wonder if I could just buy Charger highbacks from c3. Had I known they were going to make the charger I wouldn't have bought the SL's.
