Default Getting my first real board

A buddy said he would sell me his Burton Charger w/ burton snap in boots and bindings for 200. Whats the scoop on this board? I'm fairly sure its a beginner board which would be nice since i've never gone before. Looks to be in good condition too. What do you think about the price or overall buy?

Hit your friend in the arm next time you see him for attempting to rip you off.

Snap in bindings havent really been used in quite a while as far as i know...

For 200 you can get a much better setup.

FYI - People were buying the Burton Charger for 70 dollars off Ebay in 2003...

If your a beginner i wouldnt start with snap in bindings(or old ass boots for that matter), i've never ridden them but as i understand it they feel much different and less responsive than todays standard highback bindings.

I can always give him a lower price. I figured I would already.

Assuming the boots even fit you properly...MAYBE 50 dollars? I don't know someone else will have to chime in...its not worth much. Snowboards lose a ton of value in general considering its now 5+ years old...and this is using old technology on top of that...

Most people here would probably tell you if you bought it to use it as wall art...even a low end 2009/2010 Lamar or Morrow type combo setup would far surpass this most likely

Check craigslist as well, you can find some good deals there if you are on a budget...
Used boots in general are a bad idea though, but sometimes you gotta do it...
I mean would you buy used 5 year old tennis shoes from goodwill? Probably not

Yea... The boots are 11's and I normally wear 10 1/2 11's in shoes. I would definetly feel bad saying 50 bucks lol. I'll have to think about it.

i wouldn't get it. for one, boots are the most important part of any snowboarding setup. a size difference like that, and considering boots pack out, you'll have a difficult time turning due to heel lift and other stuff like putting proper pressure on the edges for initiating turns.

next, snap-in setups are ancient. the board itself probably weighs a ton, and even the cheapest and crapiest board+binding setups from Lamar would outperform your buddy's setup quite easily.

$200 a total rip off. Sounds like your friend is a real dick. Don't buy it
