3rd party bindings on Burton Channel boards - which brand works?

3rd party bindings on Burton Channel boards - which brand works? I understand it's not officially supported but i heard some ppl have success with Union bindings. Any other brand of bindings that works with their channel system? thx

Have looked into this pretty extensively because i just picked up an 09 CustomX with the ICS system and wanted new bindings. Most info out there says Burton EST bindings or nothing. However I know there is a conversion kit that will let you put regular Burton bindings on a channel board, but I haven't heard of any other binding fitting on a Burton ICS. Everyone I've spoken to says it can't be done

Here's Rome response for using their bindings on the Channel. Wonder how secure this way will be and how they screw down the binding:

I have seen some riders using their regular 4x4 disks set at a 45 degree angle, and using the two mounting holes that are furthest from each other in the ICS system. This must work since they are riding this way, but I cannot recommend doing it. The bindings are made for using four mounting screws a piece (or 3 on a Burton board) so I can’t guarantee that two screws will hold a binding totally, and securely to the board. You may encounter some flex, like toe or heel lift, if you try this mounting setup too, but I haven’t tried it myself, so I can’t say for sure. Let me know if it works out for you.

Nothing against Burton, but this is why I don't buy their boards...lack of compatibility with almost everything else out in the market.

On topic, I think I've heard some people mounting Unions with success. You may want to enquire.

Ya, i'm quite tempted by this year's Malolo but I don't want to bring an extra set of binding just for that. (ideally, have one binding + TRice + Malolo on any trip). Saves luggage spaces

Drake bindings offers free Drake-Burton Channel board mounting discs that work exclusively with Drake bindings on Burton boards that utilize the ICS Infinite Channel System mounting system. Unfortunately, they only work with Drake bindings.

Flux is the only binding system that Burton ALLOWS to use their ICS system. its because Flux owns the patent to cap straps... you can get discs from shops when you buy flux bundings. Im really digging a pair of super titans this year
