I have to disagree with you on that I had zero problems with these bindings on long days. For me, this binding hit the sweet spot on my budget and on my needs. If I had more cash when I bought my set-up I also would have gone with the Cartels/Malativa's. So it depends on how much you want to spend. But I think they are really good quality bindings for their price.

poutanen I recently bought a 2012 Burton Custom with the Custom EST bindings on it as well. I'm used to the stiffest stuff Burton makes, so these felt really weird to me. The foam cushioning underfoot is really thin, the bindings really flexy. The ratchets worked fine as all Burtons seem to work well, but the other parts of the binding wouldn't lend me to thing they'd be good for my long days.

I'd probably pick something up a little more mid-range (like Missions, Cartels or Malavitas) with the deals on now you can pick them up relatively cheap.

I have the normal Customs. They are good bindings overall, not to stiff, but still really good for all mountain, I never had like a surfy feeling. I have to admit (it seems like most Burton bindings are having this problem) that ice builds up pretty quickly in the binding, so you might want to remove some ice before you strap in, otherwise there will be a layer of ice between your boot and your binding.

Overall it are great bindings, especially considered the price/quality.

PS: I ride them with a Burton Clash and Moto's. Btw: advanced/expert level on this forum is going backcountry and such. I wouldn't say to quick your advanced/expert. But if you do backcountry snowboarding, sorry for this assumption!
