Your shop dude is an idiot. EST is not a scam. Do I personally endorse it? No, I like my knees un-blown. One loose screw on EST lets the whole damn binding twist and you die. Even on like Raiden mini discs that only use two screws, if one is loose the binding just jiggles a bit. However is does give a bit better board feel and flex and allows for nearly infinite stance options. It does what they say. I just don't think its really better enough to justify the propriety.
CustomX? Really? Hell no don't buy that. It's a full cambered gnarly carving/freeride board. From Burton look at the Sherlock, but the grip isn't fantastic if your concerned with special edge tech level of ice grip.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
