Hey I am getting the lady friend a snowboard for christmas since hers is junk and her bindings just broke. I found the Burton Feelgood which looks like it would be perfect for her. Unfortuantely Burton requires Burton bindings. I know nothing about good womens bindings so if anyone could tell me a good match up for this board that would be great. Low on price but high on quality is what I am looking for (yes I know hard to get). Thanks for your help!
I'm no expert on Burton, but I think for the EST bindings, the lineup goes: Stilleto, Scribe, Lexa, then Escapade. I think the Lexa would be good. The Stilleto and Scribe are kind of softer bindings: probably a weird match for a medium stiff board like the Feelgood.
Just a quick sanity check... The board has two big slots along the longitudinal axis, right? Cuz if it just thr 3 hole pattern then virtually and binding will work.
If it is the "integrated channel system" them the est binding (I have no idea why Burton used different acronyms for the board insert tech and the corresponding binding tech) cocolulu sound right. Although you are suppose to be able to use and post 2007 Burton regular binding as well.
Thanks for your help guys. So just a few quick questions. Are you guys sure the Burton Lexa EST's would fit on the Feelgood board? The board I am looking at has the diamond hole pattern not the slits for the bindings. If anyone has time check these out for me and see if they look alright for a match.
Also if anyone has some other suggestions as far as a non burton board that would be good for her that would be great. She is about 5'4" and 130lbs. Something with a soft-medium flex and that won't break the bank would be good. Suggest bindings for the board you suggest please. Thanks
I wouldn't say a Feelgood is soft to medium flex. I used to ride one. Not a lot of flex between the bindings. The new v-rocker might be better. You can use any bindings on a non-est burton board. If money was not a problem I'd say a never summer infinitely.
