Burton stiletto bindings

Okay, so I've FINALLY decided on a board... I kept coming back to it again and again... so I've fallen in love with it.

The Burton Feather 152


I've found bindings that I think would look good with the board (you can tell if you agree of disagree) but I don't know a lot about them and I want to know if anyone else has used them and that you think of them.

Burton Stiletto 2010



I think we're going to be trying on boots sometime this upcoming week =)

Sorry for double posting. I think I posted this at the wrong time last night. What does everyone think?

My daughter has 2010 Stilettos on a Burton Feelgood and loves them. It's her second pair of Stilettos, she has a pair from 2008 on an older board.

The Burton Feather is a good beginner board, but some people report growing out of the board after just a few weeks of riding. So if you'll only be riding a few times a year, it'll be a good board for you. If you'll be on snow more frequently, go with something that will grow with you.

I loathe Stilettos. They were my first binding. They are low quality and waaaay overpriced. For less, you can get Ride Vxn bindings, which I liked more. Or you can spend just a bit more than you would for the Burtons and get a higher quality binding, like the Ride Dva or the K2 Virtue. Look around for last year's bindings, which you can easily find online for $100 or less. Size small seems to be more readily available than the others.

I agree with lilfoot. I was looking into the stilettos for my girlfriend until I found out my cousin had them as her starter binding. The ratchets didn't last a full season (15-20 days). You might still be able to find a 2009 binding so you can get more for the same money. I ended up getting her a good deal on some 2009 Burton escapades which seem pretty nice. I read some good things about the Burton Lexa, Forum Keeper and Ride VXN. I think the keeper and the VXN are cheaper than either of those burtons but they seem pretty solid. My friend rides the VXN and thinks they are great for the money.

If you want your gear to match, get black bindings... black goes with everything

also agree. stilettos are pieces of shit. they were my first bindings borrowed from my friend and they were terrible. i ride with union forces now, i love them. also, the feather is a board you really will grow out of quickly. if you are getting it for looks go for something else that makes more sense.
