i expected a lot more out of these bindings. Union is really a reliable brand, but these aren't there best. i find my toe strap constantly getting loose when im half way down a trail. and in the woods or anywhere with lots of turning, i always have to re-tighten them halfway down the mountain
the only thing stopping me from giving it a two, is they look really awesome on my board. but besides that, i would definitely recommend going for a different set of unions. maybe the contacts, which ive heard good things about. or even the union dlx. i used to have those and those got the job done. cheap too.
