I know people that have, and the concensus is that it's a great idea but poor execution. They need some tweaking before they're really ready.

They have bad pressure points and you have a 20% chance of popping out of the toe restraint. And they take forever to get them to fit your boots like they're supposed to. And then they still doesn't work right.

Check Union Contacts too. Almost the entire heel area of the binding is a medium soft urathane, so an kind of bomb drops or flat landing will feel much nicer. And the baseplates still have the lifetime Union warranty.

They are the most flexible Unions, they're a good park binding, wouldn't use them for hard charging or big mountain, but anything that I might need some impact protection for, I'll use my Contacts. Plus, they come in orange, that's all I need to say.

If you spend a majority of time in the park, over 85%, look at Flux.
