24WERD Prob, the only one I heard you can't is the Charger.

Now Where is that 2015 Catalog now that the SIA show is over?

odvan Lads, could you rotate highbacks on new Forces like on Atlas?
Can't find this feature in description.

I also own a pair of 32 prions. the thing is these flow things kill my foot and when they are very loose well they are loose and dont work at all and i cramp up both ways. so now i want the control but also the flex and comfort to go with my board.

i was thinking of the contact pro´s to promote my board flex and comfort. im still searching and i hope i can get some advice from you and the dude from union.
Sounds more like a boot issue than a binding issue. Pions are a low end boot. Chancs are they never fit right or if they did they've broken down.

BigmountainVMD I might be finally jumping off the Burton binding bandwagon for some Union Factorys... Love the canting and the stiff highbacks that maintain torsional flexibility.

phony_stark Like Extremo said, all are good choices.

(only speaking from what I know about 2013)
Contact pros are hella light have a lot of lateral flex (which I like). They also seem to work just as well on a really soft board as a stiffer one.

Forces are more responsive and have a taller highback, they're plenty comfortable and you get a LOT of response out of them if you crank the forward lean.

Atlas is somewhere in the middle....probably my favorite binding. Super comfortable and soft and mellow when you need them to be, and responsive when you need them to be.

Can't go wrong with any of those choices. The new Contact Pro's and Force are redesigned so scoop one up and let us know what you think.

Nivek That makes a lot more sense with the boot $$ comment. That is definitely something I like hearing and does instill a lot more confidence in the new design.

I'll take your repetition "Lifetime warranty on all plastic parts" that you do in fact offer lifetime on highbacks. I will start letting customers know this.

On Zytel again, this is kinda why I asked for any empirical data that isn't brand-only knowledge. It may be that Duponts polycarb does in fact have all these benefits you speak of, but when you start adding carbon and/or glass and the varying levels and types, things can change quite drastically. That I can think of without really going and digging Union is the only binding company using a branded polycarb. It's hard to take on word that it's better in every way. After all, advil is just ibuprofen.

It might be cross threading, but its been the same system at least since 2007. I can't imagine that it has only become a problem in the last 2 years. There are ways to build it with larger threads to avoid cross threading and keep them from backing out.

I'll be clearer with the heelcup issue, I never had any come back in shop. These are instances from friends and friends of friends. One aspect I have always spoken of in my personal experience with Union is your working durability. Things break, but I never had anything break that made them unrideable.


I know that distribution doesn't equal same money. I was under the impression that Capita and Union were closer financially than just distribution. My apologize for the assumption.

In case it was the impression, I didn't jump on this to back up the basher. Your post raised some questions of mine and gave me an opportunity to mention some other things. Since our conversations are getting more and more civil I figured it'd be a good time to bring up some things that others would have just yelled at me about 8 months ago.
