The only issue I have had with my Union's is that when I cinch down, my little toe feels a bit pinched. Never had that problem with the Cartels, but then again I feel like I have better response from the DLXs. Could just be that I need to adjust it out a bit.

1. I've never had a pair of shoes start to tear, fray and fall apart (the plastic pieces on my highbacks pop out and one even fell off the lift the other day)... and in the case that they did, im pretty sure the company would send a new pair without hesitation. In fact, that did happen to me ONCE with a pair of shoes, and not only did i get a new pair, i was sent a second pair just for my troubles.

2. I wouldn't be complaining at all if the rep that I spoke with actually emailed me the information. I feel like I was yes'd to death to get me off the phone.

3. If I was GOING to push your brand to anyone, the fact that rather than try to justify your product or do right by your customers, you think that it is time for me to "MOVE ON"? If that's the case, can I get my $200.00 back for your shotty product?

Word to the wise from an actual salesperson and someone who works in a professional setting - the customer is always right, your reputation hinges not on the satisfied people but the ones who aren't satisfied that you do right by, and when representing a company as a web presence, you should act like a professional. The fact that you're a binding specific company and think it's time to move on to another company just shows how little faith YOU have in your product.

Learn how to represent your brand.

Sounds like someone bitching about a product to justify shity ability. We have 40 days this season on a pair of union atlas bindings. The split toe strap works great. Between my son and I we have flux tt30, flux dmcc light, forum Shaka, Rome 390 boss x 2, flow five, flow nx2at and union atlas. I sold 4 pairs of different Burton bindings and 2 pairs of older flows this fall also.

My sons primary binding for training and competition is the union atlas. It is loose enough for park and responsive enough for pipe, slope and he even likes it for boarder cross races.....

Granted we have never used any older models of union so I don't know if they suck on the toe strap or not.....

Either way there is no reason to suck anyone off or fornicate with their moms.... Get a different binding, I'm sure you will bitch and moan about it too..... I'm gonna eat some lunch and get a few more laps in before I go to work.

It's a forum, he can debate whatever he wants so long as it follows the rules.

Besides, these debates can get entertaining to read on my phone when I'm bored at work.

actually, this thread started about asking about some other bindings. you must be super awesome with so many different pairs of bindings. pardon me for not having the same glowing experience with Unions as you do - all I know is that for a binding specific company, the quality and craftsmanship is lacking big time. Maybe that's different for the Atlas or Contacts, though they all seem to have the same exact toe cap, and EVERY shop that I go into that sells Union says that they get the same complaints all the time - the toe caps are garbage.
Explain to me how my ability has anything to do with tearing and fraying leather, pieces of plastic falling off and toe caps that slide onto the top of the boot? youre welcome to polish my sack if youre against sucking me off.

yes, thats exactly what happened. I called and spoke to someone who told me " oh dont worry, send in your bindings, well hook it up, change the ankle and toe caps (toe caps to a better kind he said), hook it up, make it worth your while".. i asked him to email me where to send them and I never got anything. that was 2 days ago. he told me he was emailing it in 10 minutes.
