Default custom bindings

well yesterday i bought a pair of burton custom bindings. First time i strapped in i noticed that the toe buckle on the right binding was able to snapped all the way back after tightening, also i noticed that the notches on the strap had been a little chipped, is this normal from tightening?

It's not a great binding honestly. It's one of the lower end Burton's. I tried a set last year and hated them. It's not "normal" but is "normal" for something so cheaply made!

I'd keep them, do some adjusting, I hated mine before i did any adjusting and I love them now.

I have a pair of Burton Custom brews, I love em but the straps are worn out and pretty torn up. gotta love the bottle opener on the back though.

I like mine no problems so far. I will probably go back to flows though. I just like step-ins better.

mine havent worn at all and they have a good 50 uses on them, burton is pretty good with warranty stuff from what I hear though so I'm sure they'd replace any bad components of the binding

i have had the same pair of burton customs for going on 8 years now and never had a problem. granted ive had them for that long because i cant get on the mountain as much as i would like, but i have always found them to be a good binding. however i recently switched to the cartels cause i wanted a stiffer binding. you wont got wrong with the customs.
