6/25/2014 4:48:40 PM got a few pairs of union forces one of the best do anything bindings out there IMO, both pairs have well over 100 days on them and other then the ratchets on one pair needing replacement they're still going strong. I like the forces over the contacts pros just cause they're a little stiffer perfect all mountain binding IMO. 
6/19/2014 12:52:34 PM it can admiral, depends on the waxes you use for specific conditions I really like a blend of HF toko with the graphite OBJ works great you just adjust the toko temps for snow conditions. 
4/9/2014 1:54:53 PM My carving skills are just fine, I just prefer MTX because I don't have to keep my edges razor sharp for those days that are 6 inches of pow on ice 
4/6/2014 9:49:43 PM you might want to try something that is regular camber or a slightly more agressive hybrid for the kind of riding you're looking at I highly recommend checking out the capita TFA and the GNU eco genetics also the jamie lynn classic could be a good option.  
4/2/2014 7:40:43 PM you should go to south america or new zealand to ride south america from what I hear chilli is amazing. 
4/1/2014 8:04:58 PM nice they should treat you well. 
3/31/2014 1:56:26 AM I highly recommend union forces with that board, I have one and those and it's a great combination everyone who's ever ridden it has loved the set up.  
3/27/2014 1:30:49 AM as a guy who works in a shope and sells/ ghetto rigs parts for super old bindings fairly often I highly recommend not fixing bindings that are very old because you will end up having to keep replacing parts once the plastic has started breaking down to the point where you will have spent almost enough to buy some newer used ones that  will work better anyways.   
3/26/2014 8:55:19 PM can't go wrong with unions in regards to performance for price that's for sure. 
3/11/2014 11:22:13 PM unions forces great mid flex bindings will let you do just about anything. 
3/6/2014 9:39:30 PM Ok guys for any normal waxing there are two correct ways to do it. 1 pre-brush you get a steel brush  and you use it to brush all the old wax and dirt out of your board brass works ok but not as well, brushing will also remove old base materiel that has worn off and gotten packed into the base structure, this is my preferred method for my own stuff. 2 hot scrape you all know how to do it great for removing stuff that's not to packed in but doesn't do nearly as much to freshen up and clean out the structure. sometimes if I do a full tune, (sand base back to flat and stone grind) I will do both brush first to loosen everything up and then hot scrape. Lux you don't ever bother cleaning a base off before a grind cause you're grinding off all the exposed base anyways, pretty much just a waste of time.  also I do actually really know what I'm talking about I have 5 years (tune only) shop experience, 3 of it under an Olympic gold medal winning technician, anything I tell you related to tuning comes from one of the best in the world teaching it to me.    
3/4/2014 12:50:18 AM bjvinson you're doing it the right way it's better for your board to use to much then to little wax, just a bit more work on your end is all. The wax helps protect your base from the direct heat of the iron kinda provides a insulating layer to keep it from being to harsh. 
3/4/2014 12:46:17 AM pretty much what mike said for most stuff and just hot scrape it if you need to, I don't usually bother with my stuff it's a snowboard I have fun on, not a race ski getting to the bottom of the .317 of a second faster doesn't make my day any better. You should only use base cleaner if you get something like pine sap or grease from a lift or groomer on your board cause that stuff won't hot scrape out. 
3/2/2014 6:14:22 PM also use some screws get some that will go all the way through the board I'd do 3 or 4 for an edge section like that. Just screw them through the gap in the edge to hold it in place and cut the end that sticks out off and file it flush with your board. Cut little nick out of the base where the screw heads are so it will press back down flush epoxy it all together, When it's dry file the screw heads flush and fill any remaining gaps with ptex. 
3/1/2014 9:23:15 PM if you're after a noodle check out the thrive accomplice as well super soft but amazing poppy for the flex. to soft for my liking but I don't like anything less then about a 5 or 6 ever.
