Default Burton board with non-burton bindings?

I might be getting lucky and acquiring a free 2009 Burton Custom ICS. I've done a quick look and it seems that the board I'd be getting is just about the right size for me, and my current board at 13 years old is getting a bit long in the tooth, so a new board would be definitely welcome...but it looks like this board uses a new proprietary Burton binding set-up? I really love my Flow bindings and can't imagine riding on anything else. I think the answer is no, but I figured I'd check here to see if there is any kind of adapter you can use on an ICS board to let you use standard 4X4 bindings?

Thanks for any help.

Dylan

The board should come with a disc.

If not, ask Burton for one.

I'm fairly certain there is no adapter because Burton makes the Custom with both the ICS and the standard 3D mounting systems. The ICS was made specifically for their EST bindings. If there's any way you can get the 3D version of the board instead of the ICS, then you can mount your bindings on it.

I work at a sporting life and ive talked to the tech shop guys, there are special disks that allow you to put normal bindings on an EST board...the reason they have a EST and non-EST version of some boards is because the belief is that if you go with an EST board your best bet is to grab a pair of EST bindings to achieve the full potential of the board...if that doesnt bother you tho then there are ways to get normal bindings on there

Burton and Drake have a 2 hole disk that was made to fit on the ICS track. It comes with all ICS boards in a white box marked adapter plate.

Thanks all. The board I might be able to get is being used for some marketing PR firm in my building, I chatted up a guy as he was getting them and he said that normally they get to keep stuff like that, but since no one in the office boards he can probably pass it along to me. I should know in a couple of weeks. There are actually two boards that might be available, the other is a Farm that seems to have the older 3D bindings. I thought the Custom would be more my style as I tend to stay out of the park, but looking at the two boards the dimensions appear to be almost exactly the same and both seemed to be pretty stiff, so in practice I'm not sure how big of a difference it would make. I'm pretty sure I've got the right adapter for the 3D hole pattern in a parts bin somewhere too.
