this works well if your skin glue is dirty, it pulls the top layer of glue and all the dirt up. If you glue is old, best to remove it and add new. I've read somewhere else that the drycleaners will clean the glue off the skins, if you dont have killclimbs glue iron. Good time to get the split gear ready, its a bit colder every morning.

Definitely looking at Sparks. $220 thru mountaingear.com looks to be about the best deal out there.

The board was setup for the Spark Fuse, does anyone know if all the hardware will carry over for the newer Blaze or Burner?

As far as Blaze vs. Burner, any big differences? Burner worth the extra $20 or just go Blaze?

yes, worth the extra $20 - pretty sure they're just a stiffer highback.

this years burners have a wider ankle strap (from the diodes) which i like better for riding, but i think will get trashed quickly from skinning. i ripped one up with just like 30 days of resort riding.

Buy 'em from Mountain Gear, you won't find split bindings cheaper, shit never goes on sale.

From what I've seen, Spark has seperate LT brackets for the Fuze and Burner/Blaze. Your brackets might only work with the Fuze.

I'm pretty sure the Burners had a slightly stiffer ankle strap last year too, mine are pretty stiff.

I just sent Spark an email. Figure I'll just go straight to the source.

The Burner has a stiffer highback and thicker better straps.

Zag is right about LT Brackets. At least I am pretty sure. They only work with the fuse. Without re reading everything did you get the pins for the Brackets too? You have to use specific pins, the regular ones grind through the bracket. So if someone wants 'em then you probably should sell them. That is if you get a new spark binder. If no one on this thread wants 'em, I sent Ale Capone my old Fuse binders. He might want 'em. You should be able to get $30-$40 bucks no problem.

Yes, spend the extra $20 for the Burners. Unless you want a freestyle noodle binder for bc riding.

Someone has a set of Fuzes for sale on the splitboard.com forum, FYI.

Yeah, pretty sure it's the same guy who I'd hit up on CL before he posted them there. He's wanting $215 for them. I can buy new from mountaingear for $5-20 more depending on whether it's the Blaze or Burner.
