Good shit. New binding, the DL. Gets something along the same theory as Burtons Auto Cant, but I'm expecting better. And gets a new pseudo wingback that looks amazing.

The biggest change is also the reason the numbers got dropped from the names. So the TT30 had 30% glass in the frame. The SF45 had 45%. Each size within a model has its own glass content now so the numbers wouldnt make sense. Its something Union has been doing and more brands should probably look into. It makes sense.

thanks for the heads up Nivek. Been thinking of getting a NS proto and pairing it up with a pair of Flux's. I'd be interested as to if the DL would match up well with the proto for hitting natural jumps and all mountain riding with the occasional park lap. I've been riding Cartels with auto-cant on an SL, but I may make the switch to the proto.
