I have had these for 2 seasons now, and have used them in everything including powder, ice and slush. I have used them everywhere from the Northwest to Midwest U.S., and they have been great. They are durable, solid, reliable, ass-kicking bindings that have never let me down.
Personally, I prefer these ($129.95) over the Forces ($199.95) because the ratchets are much smoother and release way more easily on the toe straps.
I love the highbacks on these bindings- they are soft but not too soft, and very responsive when leaning back- making them great for most conditions. This season Union gave them the Contact highbacks from last season. They're the same but have 2 more milled out sections in the center for a little more flex.
The baseplate is wide and easily fits all the boots I've owned so far, unlike the more narrow baseplate on the Flite bindings.
The only thing I don't like about them is that there is no full base cover to stop dirt from getting to the screws :(
Calling these "beginner bindings" just because they're at the lowest price on Union's line is definitely an understatement. They're indestructible. They're nice on any terrain. They're the choice of 2 pro riders. They're affordable.
Heck, the way I see it they're one the best pairs of bindings from Union. Like I said, the only problem is the lack of a full base-cover pad, but if that doesn't bother you then go for them.
when you buy these, do they come in a pair of two bindings? because it says binding not bindings.

Yeah they come in a pair.

got these last year, i would NOT recommend them to anyone who rides anything besides a tow rope in the midwest. with any steep terrain, powder, and high speed turns, these ratchets unclick like paris hiltons belt buckle. BUT if you do ride mostly park, and flat, boring slopes, these are the binders for you! nice and cheap, and rarely unclick when simply cruisin around. again, if you ride pow, dont buy these.

This binding is super affordable! If you want to strap into some union bindings, but don't have the cash flow, then look no further! This binding offers all the great qualities, at a super cheap price! It has a soft-medium flex, and is pretty responsive! Its a great all-around binding!
