I love this binding. It is light, stiff and responsive. The straps distribute pressure uniformly across my feet so I can crank the bindings down without my feet going to sleep. I have larger feet and the sloped footbeds eliminate any notion of toe drag. For whatever reason, Union bindings, are reasonably priced despite receiving some of the highest industry reviews. Pull the trigger on these if you can. I have them set up on a Lib Tech Travis Rice Pro 164.5.
