Default Bindings broke

ok now i need to get new bindings before my trip to NH. Are Burton Freestyles a good choice? And would they fit on any board, because i know some burton bindings dont fit on non-burton board

your gonna have to give ALOT more info on your riding style, and personal stats..... but unless your riding like pure park, as far as I know freestyles would be a bad choice...

The freestyles would be good if you want another pair of broken bindings.

I had a pair for all of 2 outings. Felt like when I would try to turn they were mushy. Lots of flex. Went to a set of Burton Missions and was much happier.

eh.. I'd say if your free riding is pretty good you could use freestyles?... I go pretty hard on mine and they are still good after about 20 sesh's but yeah they are more for park so if you aren't parking it up... go with the missions... or even UNION FORCES I dunno.... everyone says that here lol... but freestyles fit great on my k2 www..

yeahmy day at a mountain will normally be 85% park, 15% riding normal trails, so I may do the freestyles.

im about 50% park, 30% riding around trails for potentially fun lips/just relaxing & cruising, 20% killing myself on those fun objects.

i have the 2011 freestyles, and 2010 missions & cartels.. i prefer the freestyles... but hey thats my personal preference... both good bindings.
i have freestyles on one board, and cartels on another. missions i won in a raffle and have only used once. werent bad themselves.

edit: i ABUSE the HELL outa my freestyles and they hold up great, id say they have roughly 25ish days on them so far??

The Burton Freestyles are an embarassment to bindings. How can they be your favorite over Cartels?

idk.. i mean for kickers and anything higher than 2-3 feet drops id use the cartels... freestyles feel like fking JELLO. however for my style i like em.

I will say that they are second to the forum shakas by a long shot though.
