there is no such thing as a terrain-specific binding.  bindings are 100% preference.

some guys ride looser, less responsive bindings for everything, even some guys who are mainly natural terrain/pow riders, and some people ride stiffer more aggressive bindings for everything, even some guys who spend most of their time on groomers and in parks.  it's just all preference.  what kind of binding do YOU like?  that's what you should get.

Spenser, i've had the burton custom 'cause they were cheap they broke after two days, returned those and then I bought some burton cartels. I haven't demo'd or had experienced any other bindings besides some unions, they didn't feel as cheap as the burton bindings.


Chillenman and von44, technine is garbage. If anything you two are just brokedick spammers for points.

Chillmans not spamming, he's just messing with you bro.

Bindings truly are trial and error like Spenser says. If you say what feel you're going for I'm sure more people would respond with something useful. I'm in a similar boat as you, I'm looking to try a new set out but I know what I'm looking for. I want a binding where I can feel more as I ride. It's going on a powder board though. Tell us what you're thinking and I'm sure we can give you choices.

I love my union forces for riding park. But that's me.

Morrow, 5150...nevermind, this thread got too serious.

what spenser said.  Actually, I would just buy spenser's flux ds45 Team Union remix and call it a day.  If you like the Unions, you'll love these.  PM him.

Did you google it?

for this setup I'm going mainly focus on jibbing and rails. Someone had given me advice about looking for less sensitive bindings. I'm starting to get annoyed with burton bindings, I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but their bindings feel so fragile and crack so easily.

chip, Idk where to start bro, i live in a military base in alaska ironically snowboarding gear is really limited around there.

Ridetimeless, they look legit but buying used gear has always been my pet peeves. Especially something like bindings.

If I should purchase some hardcore(wont break after a weeks worth of sessions) park flux bindings which one should I look for. I've heard some major good things about union contacts but I was wondering if there were any other bindings I should look at.

If you want something flexy and won't break then go Flux, you can flex that sucker like crazy.
Sessions sucks hairy monkey balls, the end.

So the Flux sf45 is a repsonsive binding is the ds30 the better choice for me?

(for a less responsive forgiving binding)

other bindings in the union line? or other brands?
I'd suggest Rome 390's or the Sierra S90s
Rome's customer service is pretty top notch.

Union bindings are pretty solid quality wise though.
THey use grade 8 hardware whereas most other companies like Burton only use grade 4.
The use Dupont for their plastics which is basically the most durable plastics you can use.
So your binding teeth won't snap.
They also have a LIFETIME warranty on their baseplates.

That's odd that you can't find stuff over there in AK, maybe Spenser knows some seeing as he pretty much runs one there.
Long hair don't care!

The line, Both the Union and also the Flux line. I'm really interested and excited about getting a pair of bindings from both brands.

a review on dogfunk kinda scared me away from the boss 390s. I also didn't like the fact that the paint on the bindings would chip off, especially knowing how insane and reckless I shred when I get my adrenaline rushing i'd probably regret it."tranny bindings" lol




I live way north in a base. Literally near "north pole". All the badass stores and what not is way down south which is Anchorage. Either that or shipping there isn't supported or cost way too much buy and return. Gets frustrating when amazon doesn't allow me to ship my 55" tv to alaska.

Wait for the 2013 union contacts. They've made some good improvements. Or i suppose you could save some money on this years but next year they get redesigned highback and updated straps.

I guess I can wait for the union'13 to come out, atleast it'll make last seasons cheaper, but as for the flux I'm still looking around.

because it's the cool thing to do. 95% of the people hating on T9 have never ridden one of their products, and see the brand image and hate in the industry that they get, and jump on the bandwagon.

i had 2 pairs of T9 MFM Pros, a Boznutz 151, and an Icon 151. I regret selling both boards, and the bindings never let me down in the 4 seasons or so they were being used.

Agreed on both posts.
I would love to get my hands on one of the OG 147 Boznutz with the green, red, and yellow stripes or whatever and the blue 151 I had back in the day.

and yes, the top caps were nice, better than the Burton ones I had on my Malavitas.
