Default Burton Custom with Raiden Wiig bindigs?

Hi,

2 weeks ago I bought the Raiden Wiig bindings for my K2 fatbob board.
The K2 fatbob is my first board that I bought second-handed 1 year ago to learn to snowboard.

Now the thing is that last week i did some runs on my friends new Burton Custom ICS (2009 model) with Cartel EST bindings.
I thought the difference wouldn't be big, but while going down the slope even the first time I felt immediately in love with the Custom.
The difference was unbelievable, the custom is simply fantastic!
So I'm planning to get a Burton Custom the next weekend but I would like to know if I can/should still use my new Raiden Wiig bindings on it or go for the ICS system + Cartel ES bindings.
Will the difference be noticeable and justify the Cartel EST purchase??

Money is not really a problem, but I think it would be a shame to get rid of the Wiig bindings if
the difference will be minimal

Thanks

no experience with the set up but the difference between est and regular is pretty significant. theres no screws underneath the board should flex more evenly. would it be worth 200$ more? thats up to you..if you can return your new bindings still then i would do that and get ESTs

It's really a waste to use regular bindings with an ICS board.
