Need Some Advice on a Burton Process

I have an opportunity to pick up a Burton Process 157 with Burton Custom Bindings for $200. Should I do it? I just need some swaying in either direction lol. Thanks Guys.

I rode that setup at a Burton demo day. The one I tried was a v-rocker. I think it is a good all-around setup. At that price I would go for it, provided it is not too beat-up.

Is the set up used or new?

Also, what's your style of riding and what level would you consider yourself?

I would call myself an intermediate rider, and do a lot of riding at Mammoth. I'm not really a park guy. The set up is used and has a V-Rocker. It is actually at a play it again near my house. The bottom is in perfect shape and the top has a small skuff and a VERY small chip. I asked why so cheap and the guy said they need to get rid of all the winter stuff to make room for surf/skate.

I can't say anything on the board itself since I personally haven't tested it out at all, but you can't go wrong with a v-rocker really.

But on the bindings I have tried them and it's definitely a good binding. Easy to use straps with good response and support.

If the bottom is perfect, as well as the sides, I'd say get it since it includes a pretty good pair of bindings as well and it would suit your riding needs/level. And if you want to try park in the future, you can as well.

I own a process v rocker and its an all mountain board a lil more oriented towards the park. On hard pack groomers you may have a hard time carving. Although on powder days this thing really excels. Since its a mid to wide board with full rocker it float extremely well. Basically at first I hated this thing but now I actually really enjoy it.

The customs are a softer binding again more oriented towards the park.

For only 200 I would defiantly pick the setup up.
