Like I said, there are no rules in snowboarding. Ride whatever gear you want.

You seem quite fixated on proving me wrong...with eBay links...
Actually I've got a saved eBay search for C60's (trying to find a specific pair) and when I saw this come up I couldn't resist. She's got $500 bindings on a $500 board...

But hey, to each their own I guess?!?

Now to go install all terrain mudder tires on my lowered celica to drive it on ice...

Now you're getting it...

Glad that my "educating" here is actually working.

I still think it's assinine to have the stiffest binding the company makes for men, on a small girls board. Sure there's nothing "wrong" with it and of course you can do it.

But there's also nothing wrong with compact car owners cutting their springs but retaining stock shocks/struts. Sure it's personal preference but it's far from ideal.

Friends don't let friends put soft bindings on a stiff board.

I wasn't aware that you had ridden a Feelgood, paired with C60s, so you could tell me what's "ideal".

Your preferences and ideal setup =/= everyone else's

Who is to say that a short, light girl rode that setup and is a ripping rider, and could handle those C60s..

Come on, son. Get with the program.

Listen son, I don't have to jump off a bridge to have an idea how it feels.

Well, the feel good is the equivalent of the custom, and I'm sure it'd be ok in your books if someone put c60's on a custom, right? Anyways, you can't make any conclusions from that listing because 1) maybe the seller just put the bindings on there to help the sale 2) maybe the girl has ankle problems and needs the stiffest bindings she can find 3) maybe the girl got cheated on by the bf and she rode his c60's to trash them a bit and then to sell them 4) maybe she's into bordercross

Or:

5) She bought a board and then asked some sales guy what the best bindings were, and he sold her those...

And I wouldn't bother putting C60's on a Custom. The Custom X sure but seems like overkill for the plain jane custom. Just so nobody gets upity sure they'll WORK, and it's all personal preference. But I wouldn't do it.

C60s (no apostrophe for plural BTW) on a Custom can make perfect sense depending depending on rider needs and preferences. Conversely, there are situations that call for a soft-ish binding on a stiff stick
Please stop this matching nonsense.

NEVER!!! My opinion differs from yours and the main purpose of the internet is to argue something to death with no logical conclusion being reached!

Okay I'm done, I'm heading to the store to buy the softest bindings I can get for my new BX board.
