This is the thing...There is absolutely nothing wrong with any of the equipment you're looking at, but I think you can definitely do better for less $ with a board and bindings from just about any other company. You're gonna hear a lot of opinions in response to this post. Burton makes great stuff, but generally it costs more than the equivalent from a different company. Mission's are great bindings and the Hails are a good boot. The custom has been around for ever but it's just an O.K. board in it's class. See what others have to say and listen to the opinions as there are a lot of knowlegable people on this forum and it can perhaps open your eyes to some of the other brands available to you.
