Yeah, the ratchets haven't been a problem for me but now other people won't have any of their own problems with them.

BTW...

That binding has actually been available this season, but only at The House Boardshop. I'm not sure in the color is the same though because I haven't next season's catalog.

Personally, I don't like The House because of all the bad opinions I've heard of their customer service, their lame product overviews, and because they openly tell potential customers which employees they plan on firing.

I think he meant the contact pro highback.

Oh yeah, you're right he did say that. I overlooked the "pro" at the end of the post and thought he meant the old Contact highback.

He said "old contact pro high backs". Does next season's Contact Pro have a new highback?

Kudos to the design team at Union. In my hands they seem to have fixed any of the issues I've had with them up to I think the Contact Pro. If memory serves ( it's been a long weekend) the Atlas, Factory, SL, and MC are still press and pull toe ratchets. The Factory looks pretty bomber, CANTED. The Contact Pro gets a mini disc and now its only something like 5% plastic touches the board. All the toe straps got overhauled and I really don't see an issue with that anymore. Not as good as making them all levered release, but the press and pulls have a different mechanism and should release easier. The Force has foam all the way to the board now.

These seem like good moves and I am optimistic for the product as a whole and hope I'm given the chance to get in some bindings.

I saw some of next season's Union bindings recently, and noticed that the toe strap looked like it had a slightly different shape. It looks more symmetrical.

I noticed this too. It looks like it doesn't loop out in the front so much.

I wanted to know which bindingss will have canting. I have had my union forces for 3 years now and they have help up great! But there on there last leg and I was debating going to Burton because there toe strap and canting makes them much more fun to ride then my unions.

Ryan,

The Factory is the only binding getting canting from Union for 2014. I would like to say get the new Forces, but I havent ridden them to say how the changes effect the ride. The new 3D heelcup shaping and new heel section in the frame will change the way it rides.

As of 2013 I gotta say grab some Cartels over another pair of Forces. For me they rode better in every way.
