At this price it really should make your other boards obsolete, would like to have a ride on one, but not pay for one.

Yeah, you need to upgrade the bindings to match the board.

I should say that as far as the price it's not "worth" it if you are seeking incremental increases in performance for every dollar your spend.....but thats not why you buy a board l ike this.

You are right about e bindings. At first I wanted the X base bindings but you can't find them in canada (if anyone hass a pair they want to sell send me a pm) but now I think I'm going to wait for next year's genesis.

Consider diodes or recent c60's for bindings, nice and stiff - the hinge rocks on the diodes

Any concerns the board is too small for you - weight range to 180, your earlier post said you weigh 185.

I'm thinking more in powder conditions than on groomed snow.

I weigh 185 too and have a 159 cambered board for most days but a 163 for powder and soft snow days.

Why would you recommend a stiff binding?

As far as the size 158 was the biggest they made. I am 185, but I need to loose some of my gut to bring that down to 180 or 175 ideally. I agree for deep POW days a longer board might be better, but on the other hand a shorter board naturally set back like this one gives a skate board feel with loose trucks and is great for POW tree runs. Its a good all around board, but likely there are times it wouldnt be ideal.

Thanks..I ended up getting the diode and posting my impressions in the Burton Mystery thread under the boards section. Left it out of the "review" thread since it wasnt really related.

Actually, he started off with the Burton Customs which are in fact quite light.

HA! You know whats funny. I hadnt really compared the weight of bindings before, and when I replaced my custom bindings with Diodes I was expecting the DIodes to be a feather compared, and while they were lighter it wasnt night and day, or at least what I was expecting at first. I then realized that as you said the Customs must have been considered a pretty light binding.
