well you have to get burton bindings if you get a burton board. id say stay away from burton boards. many other better brands. check out NS or rome

custom doesn't come standard with rocker, frankly if i were you i'd only consider the custom if you could get the flying v
but honestly, don't buy burton. i'm not saying that because i'm a hater who goes around saying "OMG BURTON SUCKS THEY MAKE SUCH HAXOR BOARDS!!1!!" its just that burton boards seriously limit what you ride if you choose to ride with their ICS system (which you are, since both boards you have listed have them)
and also, there are much better binding companies out there like rome and union (this coming from a guy rocking last years burton missions :P)

My first board was a Burton and it was a piece... I've since then educated myself and now know that there's better boards out there for the same or less money.

Check into Never Summer, Bataleon, or Capita.

its all preference. if you ride a burton board, you gotta have burton bindings..which to me is fucking retarded. but he should really check out some other companys...
