     This is a tough decision cause my last setup I had L/XL bindings for my size 11's but they were burton bindings, i might have to go check it out for myself at some shop

    an 11 is definitely better in medium burtons. union mediums don't have as large a size range.

     I had mediums for my burton setup but then I returned them and got large/XL bindings instead and i think it felt better. that aside are you recommending I go with the L/XL in unions because the mediums don't have a large size range? Sorry with the large amount of questions man haha

    Those pics look pretty much the same fit as my sz11 Burtons in M est binders. They fit and ride great and I've been in a L binding and its def too much(width and strap length). I can't say much about Unions cause I haven't ridden them, but it looks like the same fit I have.

    sorry for the confusion, hah.

    size 11 boot in burton binding = medium. size 11 burton shrinkage in union = either size works as far as i recall. i'm not even sure which one i'd pick if it were me. i'd probably go for L/XL bases and M/L straps

    Is there a big diff in the heelcup width?

     Is there anyway you can get a pic of a burton shrink tech book in L/XL union bindings? or is that too much haha, if it is I totally understand  

    edit: And nitro909 my size 11 ambush boots felt pretty snug in my L/XL missions, I admit the toe strap is a little much but thats it, ankle strap fits perfect and its a snug fit I'll probably try to find some medium straps and if not go for L/XL straps and binding. If I could see some pics that would be great though.

    i don't have any L/XL unions to play with, but our order was supposed to ship today. should be here mid-week next week.

    i don't know about the heelcups, but i recall the width of the base tray being around 1cm wider in the L/XL vs M

     Alright thats awesome so when they do come in if you could just do the same thing with them and see how the straps work out. That would be kick ass if you could do that, it would really help me out. So just recap, you feel that the L/XL base is a better fit for a size 11 but the L/XL straps might be to much?

    (when the bindings do come in you can just put them up here, ill be checking this thread daily haha)
    thanks again

    i think so. they do fit in the M/L base but it could be a little longer, and the slight width increase may still be fine. i'll try to remember to check

    Great now just to convince my dad that my burton board is not for me and that a new ultrafear will do the trick paired up with some nice union atlas bindings. It will be a great day if this happens gentlemen. My plan is to exchange the bindings for atalses on dogfunk and sell my burton to play it again sports and with that money plus some birthday money get me a nice capita. What do you guys think about that plan?

    if you can filter out play-it-again, you may have an easier time affording the new stuff. they might give you a nickel for it.

    I rode SLX and Raptor both sz 11 in M B bindings. The prob with Burton is that the est and tray bindings fit so diff. The est fit me perfect, L is too big everywhere. The M tray fits good everywhere except for the length, if the toe ramp could be extended a little more it might fit better. Snug is good, loose is not good. Btw, B binding come in s m l, no Xl anywhere(sorry its a pet peeve). Listen to these guys, they know the fit best, go into your local shop, get their opinion, make the adjustments yourself and spend your money there. Don't waste their time and then buy online.

     I am listening to what Spenser is saying, he thinks that the l/Xl baseplate would be great with medium straps. I just wanna see how a l/Xl union binding would fit in a size 11. I just feel that 11 is pushing the medium binding and if my foot grows anymore there goes 200 bucks do I just wanna be sure cause my local shop is almost 2 hours away. And I hope I'm not wasting anybody's time cause Spenser is giving me some grat feedback same with you.  

    Edit: is play-it-again really that cheap? It's a last season button hero, ridden only once

    the L/XL does work, and yes i'm guessing the medium straps would still be better, but after seeing those photos i took, i'm kinda retracting what i said about thinking L/XL straps would be too big. more than you'd need, since M/L clearly works, but still. sorry for going back and forth on it, haha.. i just hadn't seen the pictures in a while.

    anyway, i will check it out again when our onions get here.

    Here are my 10.5 Grails in a M/L Force, I just tried to show how they fit in the base plate. You can see that there is a little wiggle room, but towards the top you can see that the white trim piece is slightly pushing into the boot.

     Lol no problem man, hopefully the onions get to you soon  

    Edit: thanks for the pics, I feel like a size 11 would swallow up that wiggle room but maybe not.  What binding size would you get in my situation sevenstars?

    spenser said: with size 10, it depends on the boot. normally that's going to be a M/L union though.
    i'd go with the ultra for the width. in the lower 50's sizes, it should be perfect for your 10s.

     

    According to the new TWS mag Stevens wears a size 10 and rides the 53 Ultra.
