Burton Stilettos?

Not sure if I even spelled stilettos right? Who needs to be able to spell anyhow?

First off...Does anyone know how stiff/aggressive they are?

Anybody have em? What do you think? I had a pair of Lexa's before that I liked okay. Does anybody know how they compare the Lexa's?

They are on sale at REI.....I'm considering. Need a set of something for my new Arbor Push and sadly, I have yet to find a binding that I absolutely love.

Re: Burton Stilettos?

GF used to have them... She wished she got Lexas at the time.

Not a bad binding per se but nothing great either. Unless you get them for dirt cheap, I'd look for something else.

If you're looking for a responsive binding see if you can find the Scribe or Lexa instead... GF got the Scribes on a Prior freeride board and loves them. She's carving up a storm!

my wife went from using the stiletto to lexa. She is very glad to have made the switched. for her the stiletto was too flexible and softer, she wanted a more responsive binding so i got her lexa three years ago. She loves it very much. I know dogfunk.com has sales on burton stuff right now.

Marginally stiffer and about the same responsiveness as Lexas. I didn't like ankle strap, it was too wide and created a pressure point for me. Other than that it's a nice high-end binding with that snappy agility that most Burton bindings have.
