i'll be honest, i got a board this season and its showing an abnormal amount of wear compared to my 7 or 8 year old ride mountain that i just replaced this year. maybe because its black?? i dont know.
so why are you tryin to rip on people for not liking burton, if the only reason you ride burton is because you get the stuff so cheap?

Anywho, carry on!

I can't speak much about Burton bindings, having only done a few runs on the Cartels, but I was shocked at the quality in their '08 speed lace boots. I went boot shopping today and tried out about 10 different brands and models. I tried out the low-end Moto's and just as the sales guy was telling me about how tough the parachute cord laces were, it snapped in my hand.

"Oh wow, I've never seen that before" he said as he went to get a pair of SL-9's. And I did it AGAIN. Neither were display models that maybe got a nick or something as they're handled by every customer, they were still in the plastic with the styrofoam inserts. 2 warranty claims in 5 minutes and because of the speed lace design, not user repairable. Too bad because the SL-9's were comfortable....well, at least the left one was.

andrew_schenk Drake also has wicked CS, the one heel strap insert on my 04 SS broke off so i emailed them, next day they email asking for my address, 3 days later (had to cross border into canada aswell) i got the 05 model heel strap, plus a brand new ratchet and both the ladder strap and other strap... now the 05 and 04 heel straps didnt match lol... so i email and they say no prob, but all we have is 06 heel straps... 3 days later 2 new 06 heel strap and components are at my door, and really no questions asked.

although i was pretty pissed about the bindings breaking (it wasnt that they broke, it was the stupid design of them)... so i bought Targa's when all this was going on, so now i have the 04/06 super sports on my jib board.

While I was there some guy came in with another set of broken cartel bindings. So is there a problem with Burton bindings breaking? A lot of my friends have burton boards and gear, but none of them have burton bindings. Mine are Ride Beta ULs.
Yeah, my overall experience with Burton bindings (at least the newer models) is that their materials although they look good feel EXTREMELY cheap and not up to riding long without breaking. I currently own a pair of Rome Arsenals (their cheapest binding set) and have also ridden my friends' 08 Cartels and I would not trade him even if he gave me money to. Seriously, the quality Burton has atm in their bindings compared to companies like Rome, Ride, or Option is just disappointing...
