You want this tread ended? Showing you actually don't care about feedback. Way to go.
I guess you've never heard of the Atlas line.

Alright, but you can get way better bindings for way less. Also since union is binding company, why would you pay 300 for something another company , that isnt binding oriented, makes better for less?

Wrong, union is shit, they want this thread closed because they don't care about feedback. Hype is all they have and rich cunts that ride them because someone pro is payed to ride them, you really think travis rice wants to run union? Hmmm, wonder why he rode cartels before without a binding sponsor.

I dont care about a company that its sole purpose is to make a binding, which they cant even do properly and that doesn't give a shit about what people say about it. For fucks sake, even k2 bindings are better and they are originally a ski company?

For the price of atlas you can get switchbacks. Id rather have those.....

Switchback better than the Atlas? Now that's a joke. Cartels? I'd give you that, but at a $40 increase in cost all you're really getting is an upgrade in the toe strap. And like I said, you can add that to the Atlas at the same cost and have, IMO, a better binding.

Its cute, how you defend union. But look at the big picture...... there are better choices.

Switchbacks are solid. Straps are super plush, ratchets aren't the best but still better then union, and toe strap is sick. Id say, the 300 dollars switchbacks compare to 25o dollar forces. But at the same value level as forces, cartels are a clear choice.

The switchback ankle straps blow. Ratchets aren't close to Unions. The toe cap is about as basic as you can find. And all for $300 when you can the the far superior Atlas for $60 less. What a joke. And then you're comparing the $199 Force to the $270 Cartel? This argument is a joke.

Your opinion on products are rightfully yours. BUT, there's no need to call people cunts just because you don't like a product. Stop with the disrespect. There's no need for it. You need to take a chill pill.

life IS good.

You're hypocritical as shit.
You proceed to bash Union claiming that they are ridden by 'rich cunts'... yet when you try and provide a "suggestion" for a better option, everything you suggest is even more expensive.
It's also worth mentioning your WTB ad for bindings. As already posted, you were asking for forces... but your price range takes away any credibility you have in this argument. Clearly you're not capable of buying the bindings under discussion... so your hate must just simply be based on envy, or the "I read this on the internet so it must be true" mentality.

Prices taken from my local shop. Source.

Union Atlas - 319.99
Union Force - 269.99
Burton Cartel - 269.99

Overpriced bindings, that work, yeah they work, but not worth the money. How are switchback ratchets bad? They release smooth, union ones actually dont. Tried it before, they require force. Maybe that's where they got the name for the Force model. Ugly colorways too.

Hmm, sorry for coming of as a douchebag, i cant stand union. My suggested options my be higher but not by much, and what you gain over union products is returned in value. Anyways, sorry for this sack of shit my posts are. If i offended anyone, my apologies. I respect anyone who rides a plank on snow. Well, i just wanted to voice my opinion. Please, don't listen to me because im obviously retarded. Good night.
