I started the season with cartels and did not like the big reflex ankle strap and not as rwsponsive as the capo i rode last year. Then i finally gave flux sf45 a try and they're the most responsive binding ever. not much tech but simple is better sometimes. My capo were great but i did have an issue with the ladder strap shredding up and sliding off the rachet. not good.

Each to their own I guess, the ones I had I just couldn't get comfortable and binned them.

haha why do you need friction on the inside, if you place them properly over the toe, it's going to hold it down, regardless of any "rubber" inside.


and it's completely laughable that you claim that Gnu has better toe caps than Union. That alone makes your post, and your opinion irrelevant for being such a dumb twat.
first of all, suck my dick. secondly, if you know anything about basic physics, friction on the inside of the toe cap would stop it from sliding up or down. im pretty sure even someone as fucking stupid as you can put the toe caps in the right spot just like i do. im glad they work for you..for myself and countless others, they're steaming piles of floppy leather shit. whats completely laughable is how bad you want to suck Union's cock. Guess what? Ive looked at basically every toe cap I could find and Union's are by far the most worthless of the bunch. They're flat (no curvature at all), they have textured leather that gets worn down to flat in 5 days on the hill, and they dont fit over a majority of boots.

But just in case you dont want to read all of that, heres a tl;dr : go fuck your mother

I disagree with this as well. I have the SL's with the new split cap and the Atlas with a Burton get-a-grip upgrade. I switch up my boards daily depending whether I'm riding park or the mountain. Niether strap is better or worse than the other. You may not like the look of the Union, but they work and feel pretty much exactly the same. I don't even notice the difference while riding. Maybe they'd be a problem if I wasn't able to get them so center properly or something, who knows. But for me that isn't the case.

fair enough, however ive had cartels, missions, even Ride Ex and LX and I can say that all 4 of them had better quality toe caps than the Unions. The Unions are also less than 18 months old and have more visible damage to the leather, the highback padding, etc than any of the other bindings..the cartels and missions were from 2009. If you like your Union toe caps, then all the power to you. Personally, I think they're worthless and the ones on my girlfriends Burton Citizen bindings are better quality

Oh definitely. Any fabric covered strap is going to get shredded after awhile. The Burton get-a-grip strap is indestructable. I guess the Union straps just work better for some than others.

Agreed. Do people get mad when their shoes wear out? Straps are like shoes - use them and they wear.

It is time for Eastsside to move on. Buy something else, go shred and have FUN. Much better than debating about it on the internet for days on end.
