Pfft. I've never had a Union ratchet break off in my hand in a store...

Burton, on the other hand...

(and I own Rome Targas so not some Union homer).

boardneub Well ive been riding 3 times now with these bindings, and im no were near pro. However they are comfortable and have no problems lasting a day on the slopes without fear of sore feet. They are fairly flexible, which is both good and bad but im throughly enjoying them. for 120, i think they were a good buy.

Also worth mentioning, i know there are much much better bindings out there, but as a noob snowboarder i dont want to drop a G in my first season as so..

matt.
To be honest Technine has really turned there bindings around,they offer a lifetime warranty on baseplate's now and latter's have lifetime warranty to.

Yes in the past they had problems,and that's what everyone remembers.

There really aren't many dealers in Toronto either,We just brought the line in this year.

so looking further into bindings, would it be worth it to spend the extra dough on these forums?

or just pick up the nitros?

Personally I'd still got with the Raidens. And that is cool, there is a good amount on here from your area. It is kinda dead now but check out the Eastern Canada sub-forum once we finally get some snow.

Look around for sure but I think you'd like the Raidens. Decent flex and good cushioning for jumps. Sounds like you might be in Ontario?

Burton bindings are far from the worst. But yeah, knowing the type of riding would help.
