Default Cheaper Toe Cap Bindings?

Hi all,

I've been using a traditional set of bindings for a while and want to try to move to the toe cap style ones due to pain in the top of the foot at the moment.

I was looking to get Burton customs but am wondering what are cheaper options that people would go for?

Any recommendations?

Graham

I'm partial to the K2 Indys or Salomon Arcades for a price concious binding.

thanks. strange though looks like I can get Customs for as cheap!

maybe just stick with them. Seem to be the tried and trusted.

How much of an issue is overhang with those bindings though (capstrap) or don't they add much?

Hi - no thanks. My current bindings are too big and need a whole new set

I have another question. I'm not a complete beginner, starting onto red slopes now spent probably 10 days on the board wondering would a binding like the Burton Custom be OK for me? Hear things about "Intermediate bindings" - what do you think or should I go for something more forgiving like the Burton Freestyle?

live in Switzerland, they are graded as blue / red and black.

Is a definition here - http://www.skilikeawoman.com/colours.htm

The customs will be fine for you. You're probably not going to be able to tell a huge differennce between bindings now anyways. And the cap strap does not add overhang.
