The Burton Trap
So I bought my son a Burton Chopper, thinking his existing bindings which have the two tracks would fit. Lo and behold, Burton's kids boards use a different 3 hole size then their adult boards. The ONLY bindings that fit are Burton Junior bindings. That really sucks. So I figure why not, I found some Burton Customs JR at, but my son's 5 boots are too tight in the heel cup on the bindings. What to do... so I bought a pair of Burton Ruler Smalls.
So, instead of just spending $160 on a Burton sale priced board, I just spent $450 on Burton gear.
Of course, no exchanges/refunds on sale gear, otherwise I would have sent the Chopper back.
That is the Burton trap...
On the plus side, the boots are speed lace, so I don't have to lace them.
