Kinda confused about Burton Freestyle
So I got Burton Freestyles as my first bindings. When I posted a review of all of my starting gear, I got this response about my bindings...
"If you think burton freestyles are good then just wait until you treat yourself to a pair of binders that are actually worth money. You'll jizz yourself so bad you'll be able to donate to 10 sperm banks.
Seriously, other bindings that cost more than 80 bucks (well, maybe around the 150 or so region) are 100 times better than those things. if you feel like youre flexing too much or the bindings are starting to break i suggest spending some money on a good set of bindings. Good binders will last you a long time."
I'm a little confused about this and the guy who sold these to me. They were $120 when I bought them in store at The House, and the salseman told me that they're the best bang for your buck for a beginner. He really seemed like he knew what he was talking about, so I bought them. The only complaint I have with them is that the crank skips because the teeth aren't hooking enough, but when that starts to happen I'm already strapped in tight enough. Then again, this might be my only complaint because it's my first pair of bindings and I have nothing to compare to. Anyways, are other bindings really so much better that "You'll jizz yourself so bad you'll be able to donate to 10 sperm banks."?
