I just picked these up this season I really like them so far. They are my first Union bindings so the EVA bushings were new to me. I really enjoy having some cushion under my feet as well as the board flex. I have mostly been riding around the resort on hardpack and ice and the bushings really help reduce vibrations which is really nice. The highbacks are a bit more flexible then I had imagined so I would say they are more of a med-soft then the medium that they are listed as. That being said they still hold up as an all mtn binding. Still I would be interested to try the forces or atlas it seems that they would fit my riding style better. But for the cost I doubt you can find a better all-mtn freestyle binging than these.
