Help me? Just for kicks?

Contacts have been lost. Since I have no desire to pay full price like everyone else, bindings are now up in the air for me.

My most likely options are either last years Nitranes or something Burton. This is all in hopes my old shop feels up to hooking my broke ass up.

So, my personal Burton experience is limited to Malavita's and Cartels.

Just figure these will go on something like a Blacklist or Park Flat or Whatever... them types.

Those that know Burton well, discuss. I may or may not listen. More than just these or those will be appreciated and the lack of explanation may result in an internet fight.

EDIT: Screw it, after a good look through I dont want to deal with stock forward lean. Malavitas win. Unless I find wingless '09 Infidels...

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

ahh the tables have turned! the master is asking the questions now haha. Malavitas look good if you want to go with burton, or cobra sharks? i like softer bindings, so thats my opinion.

But why not just cut back on lunch meat for a few weeks and pick up some Zeros.

Too Fast!

Meh, if I can get some Malavita's for under $130 (possible) then I'll just do that. Can't do Sharks, I wear Flow Hylites (double boa, hence the hope for wingless Infidels).

Your cheapest option is $2 worth of 2in long wood screws...apparently its a little bit of a pain to set up, but the board feel is fairly realistic.

This works well, when you lose enough blood the pain goes away.

Sub-zero temperatures also make this option very worthwhile.

Ride it like you stole it.
