Technine Rhyme vs. Burton custom

im buying a new board, which will probably be a GNU park pickle BTX 153, and i'm also looking for some cool bindings to go with it. im looking to spend around $100-150, and my only requirements are a toe-cap and good quality.

im trying to decide between some burton custom bindings, which my friend will sell me for $75, or these technine bindings.

Technine Rhyme & Reason Snowboard Binding from Dogfunk.com

the techs only come in small and medium, im worried it might be too small for my boot size (11). which bindings are better?

thanks!

Going to be way to small. You will need a large if not xl

dont look at burton customs as "quality" either, and the toe straps fall down and dont work like they should either.

i probably wont get the techs since they dont come in larger sizes.

from my experience using the custom bindings they've worked fine, but what else would you guys suggest?

union force. more expensive than the customs at $200 but the improved durability alone is enough for the price.

Those Rides will be leaps and bounds better than either the Tech Nines or the Burtons. Ride makes really solid bindings.

see if you can find some of last years MVMNT series bindings left over. theyll be better for you than the EX but if all else fails.
