Burton Bindings

I am looking at getting some bindings for this up coming season. I have been looking at Burton and Rome. I have read some good opinions on Burton products in general, but I have read a lot more opinions from people saying that there products are terrible. I am trying to get some unbiased opinions on this. More specifically their bindings.

bindings may be Burtons strongest suit with the least amount of haters. They make great bindings. I'm loving my '12 Vitas, Cartels are also a great choice.

Their bindings are some of the best on the market. There is absolutely no reason to not look into their bindings.

There are a lot of immature haters out there who feel the need to bash Burton due to them being the biggest company in the industry.

I had a better experience on Burton Malavitas than on the Rome 390 Boss. I find the Vitas more comfortable day to day. The Rome isn't a bad binding at all (more all mountain than I was led to believe at first). But the Malavita just felt good with my foot/boot.

People hate on Burton boards quite a bit, but not on the bindings. I think mostly everyone agrees they're solid.

Maybe u guys can give me some more info. I recently open a forum on the burton antler vs. the Rome agent Rocker. This guy gave some good info on both and recommended the agent rocker, but i feel it was a biased opinion. Any thoughts one the boards?

Antler is a rad board, but MSRP on it is way too high for what it is. If you can get it cheap, I'd definitely consider it. The Agent is an awesome board as well. You really can't go wrong with either. Pick whatever graphic you like best, seriously.

I ride burton cartels 13 and they are a quality binding, I have paired them up with my Burton Antler and it is the most damn fun I have had boarding in a long time. I have gone from a stiff board and stiff bindings to this set up and I love it. I just love the "controversial" EST system and the flex on the antler makes it a great ride. I have lost a little speed as it can get a little washy compared to the camber board I am used to but I think the more time I spend on it the more I will adapt. Haven't ridden the rome so can't give you a fair comparison.

I read the thread you started and imo you were not given biased information. Just based on the info you gave, the rome was recommended. I have a burton process which has the same feel rating as the antler, which just seems like it might be a little too soft for what you want (all mountain) while perfect for me ( big on park and all mountain). Then again its all opinion based.
