Yeah the difference is noticeable. With the atlas the highback twists evenly both ways. On the SL the highback twists inward easier and is more rigid outwards and makes a good combo of comfort and response.

So, if you have a fairly soft board; especially torsionally, a stiff binding will make the control very very touchy. It becomes extremely easy to oversteer.
Good explanation. Thank you. Also sent you a PM some time ago - check your inbox

A stiffer binding makes things sketchy at high speed? Is this because you cannot "feel" the board the same way?

chatyak Is it worth it spending the money on new bindings versus my current ones? I'm trying to save a bit of cash... not sure if the upgrade of $250 is worth it from my 2008 Burton Missions to a newer set.

My options are limited. I like the idea of auto-canting, however I'd have to spend $300 on burton cartels in Canada. I can get a set of Union SLs or Atlas for around $260.

Slush Puppie Not had too much problem with the toe strap slipping because I found that I way prefer the feel rocking them over the top rather than cap and have worn them mostly like that. More responsive, completely comfortable and works well with my foot shape.

I found the Rome 390 BOSS worked well with the SL for a mix of park and freeride, but got rid of them because the toecap didn't fit my boot (Nitro) well and kept sliding off. I ended up switching to a pair of Burton CO2s and I like them (there are a little bit stiffer though, and I generally like more responsive gear as before the 390 BOSS I had a pair of Burton C60s on it).

Hmm alright. I'll see what models are in the stores around here and go from there. I know one place as the SL and Atlas from Union. Think another shop here carries the cartels.... time to check. Not sure on the other brands if they are carried.

I currently covet the Union Team Atlas with carbon infused baseplate (the SuperPro) for my all mountain board. It's the same as the SL with a stiffer highback. I'd recommend that over all.
