Nope, I'd just buy the bindings and use them the way they come...

The product info says it's meant for a experienced/pro rider. I've never been on one so I can't talk. Some guys love the C2BTX profile but I'd rather my snowboard have a camber profile than something resembling a snake.

I still think the Volkl would be a better board for the money.

In short, yes.

Nothing wrong with the Sherlock, they both have triaxial fibreglass but it looks like the volkl has more carbon fibre in it.

I suspect build quality would be at LEAST as good on the Volkl if not much better. I love my Burton but the topsheet is very easily chipped.

Put it this way: I'm looking at replacing my Burton T7 with a Volkl Coal XT (among other things)...

Völkl - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They're owned by the same parent company that owns K2, Coleman, Rawlings, and a bunch of other brands. So they're not just some one off company.

The boards are made in Germany, while I believe most of Burtons stuff is made in China. I'm thrilled with my Burton but it was made in Vermont, USA.

I think the Volkl is at least as trustworthy as Burton as a brand, but I've never owned one.

http://www.snowboardingforum.com/equ...oards-why.html There are three posts about Volkls in that thread and everyone loves them...

http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...kl-boards.html there's another thread about them...
