I'll put it this way... When i'm bombing down a hill or hitting a 20+ foot booter i want more than 2 screws holding my foot into place.

Burton's "innovations" have only been to fill their wallets by making you stick to their product. Many other companies have real innovations that actually improve riding such as bataleon, never summer, and lib tech. All those companies are creating boards with new tech to make snowboarding more fun.

Burton seems to make boards with "new and improved" binding inserts. Last time i checked have 2, 3, or 4 screws attaching my bindings did not help me progress in the way actual innovations do.

Don't get me wrong though burton still makes some quality stuff, just most of the time they charge about 3 times more than they should for it.
