opinions on Lamar MX30

How's it going everyone, Im just getting back into snowboarding and been on the search for some new gear ended up buying most of my stuff new again just not wanting to get a new board/bindings right away as I am planning to just use a easy setup to get back into things. But i was on CL and found an ad for Lamar MX30 they are like new (used once) what do you think about about them?

Lamar is a pretty cheap brand. What are they asking?

Unless they're $30 I wouldn't bother. Toe straps instead of caps (caps are the way to go) and those ratchets look like they'd be a pain. Seems like a buget binding to me. Better off getting some used Burton stuff, at least you know there are tons of parts out there for them, and tons of replacement stuff available from the manufacturer if you need. Baseplates are guaranteed for life, etc.

its funny you said that they are 35$ haha, Also i was looking at the idea of getting new bindings aswell and just getting a used board then upgrading it probably next season or during the off season the bindings i was thinking about purchasing new are "Burton Freestyle" i would be able to get them at 99$

I would get the freestyles LONG before I'd get the lamars, even at 3 times the price. But again, the freestyle still has a toe strap instead of a cap. For a little more money the Burton Custom bindings have a proper toe cap, and I think a better heel strap.

Looks like the going rate on the Custom is about $112 for S or L. If you need medium you'll have to pay a little more.

Check Kijiji or CL for something in the mid-range of burtons lineup. I bought brand new Diodes for $250 shipped to my door off Kijiji. They retail for $399 in Canada.

The wide is unnecessary for your size. A regular width would be fine for you. That Kemper board is likely to be older as well. I'd probably keep looking if it was me. The Customs are the nicest thing there, and they alone are not worth $100 used IMO.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Board is too wide and from a no-name brand. bindings are average and pretty old looking. if you can get the bindings for $50 by themselves, it'd be worth it if they're in good condition. I wouldn't consider that board though
