i ride customs right now and i love them. durable, responsive, very comfortable...just about everything you want in a binding.
the toe caps/high backs are awesome, plus you really dont need to play around with the adjustment straps too much to get them dialed in
last year i put in around 45 days on my customs and i didnt have any problems whatsoever

Customs and I don't mix. I demoed three different pairs of the 2011's earlier this year. All three saw my rear foot's toe strap coming loose.

I suspect that it was due the massive amounts of tail presses that I was doing since I use the lean back method. I have size 10 boots and all three Customs were large.

thanks for the comments, i used customs all last season and i loved them. I was just seeing what people thought about them. I figured i would get some comments from a bunch of people bashing burton and saying how bad they are lol, guess i was wrong. @leo, i havnt had any problems with the straps coming loose, guess i should start doing some more tail presses lol

Yea, I was the only one with that problem out of all the other employees that rode. But last season was the year I was dialing in my tail presses so that's why I was doing them so much. That and it's fun to just nollie into a tail press at random intervals during my runs

The Burton hate has died down a lot here. You're still going to get hate comments when you bring it up, but it's pretty much been beaten to death around these parts.

my buddy snapped his customs when he tried to frontflip off a 3 ft box, lets just say he wasn't happy. The clear plastic base plate snapped in half.
After witnessing this last season i just decided on Burton Cartel EST
