BTW..its doesnt take a guy with lots of money to afford $300-$400 bindings lol
Hey its not what I'm sayin, its what I was told. And their analysis of the market is more or less correct. The seasoned riders I get in here arent dropping near $400 for a binding. If they want something a little softer, like I've been told the Genesis is, there are much cheaper options which means they can afford real food over ramen that month. It does seem that Burton is pushing a softer highback and this being a two piece oddity maybe it does provide all the response you can ask for. I dont know. But I know a lot of people were expecting it to replace the Prophecy and as fas as I've been told it does only in price point, not performance. Does that mean someone who loved the Prophecy wont like the Genesis, I have no idea. I just want to inform those looking at this guy that it might not be what they think.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
