Union Force PROBLEMS
 
I am quite disapointed as of late with my new union forces. I have used them 3 times in total and the toe strap is CRAP I REPEAT CRAP. It sticks no matter how I position or adjust it. Yes I have done all the adjustments you can do (toe strap length, heel cup adjust, toe strap forwar and backward adsjustment etc etc) I have been reading and have found this is a common problem.....Quite dissapointed.....

Word. When I was selecting bindings 2 years ago I was going to go with union because I heard good things about durability but the toe strap scared me away. I went with flux and am loving it:yahoo: Flux changed the toe cap the season after I bought my pair so I cant comment on them now.

What do you mean it sticks? As in the ratchet doesn't release?

What sticks? The ratchet?

The ratchet sticks. Its like I have to pull on it hard to release it and when it does release its like a pop like its breaking but its not. The ankle strap releases real nice but the toe strap is a bitch. And no it is not cranked all the way down. There is about 4-5 teeth showing.

When your pulling up on the ratchet do you just pull the lever up? I have found with some bindings they open easier if you pull the ratchet lever up with your main fingers while applying pressure downwards on the opposite end of the lever with your thumb.

Wow thats hard to explain, but hopefully it will help:dunno:

Yeah the toe ratchets are a bitch. You have to kung-fu grip the shit out of it to get it to pop. Still love 'em though.

I had the same issue with my Union force... I feel your pain. This year I went Flux, no ratchet problem at all. :D

Going out tomorrow....I either find a solution and decide I will keep them.....or I'll sell them. Really pisses me off....270 dollar bindings and coming from a binding only company and I get this.
