I have riden union bindings now for 3 years. I had a pair of Union Force and loved them. They were good for all-mountain riding and park, and never had any problems with them. Then this year I decided to upgrade to the Contact Pros. When I first got them I thought they looked sweet and seemed like they were made of good quality. But the first day I rode on these bindings in the park the heelcup smashed in. All the paint chipped off and now I don't know what to do. When I took the heelcup off I noticed that the material was flimsy and not as nice as my Force.
