flipone Icemonkey, if you are from toronto, please check out sanction snow. Shop that specializes in snowboarding gear. Plenty of options and very helpful staff. Picked up a proto hd and 2013/2014 malavitas. Just waiting for my boots to come in.

sporty9xterra sounds like i'm in a similar situation would you guys opt for Happy hour over the Turbo dream? I'm leaning toward the happy hour due to reviews about speed and carving.

Nor will the Happy Hour not perform well on the mountain.

The Raygun is just set back a touch, its a twin shape with set back, Alkasquawlik is right, it will not ride funny switch. The HH has more tech and is a much better board (on paper) in my opinion. Both are a step up from the Burtons that Sportchek offers, pick either one, get it and enjoy.

Madbob14 I've been a casual rider for roughly 3-4 years.

I can't even tell the difference between the burton mission and union atlas. (they were ridden in separate seasons in my defense!) I'm not sure if i'm just bad or not....or just not skilled enough to know the differences.

I think people really just look too hard into small details but then again....i did the same thing when I bought my gear.

If I were you, I would just go with the cartels. From what everyone says they are a do everything binding! And they are cheaper than the malavitas.

Lamps Can you get a burton custom from sport check?

That plus cartels be a good all around, long term setup.
10-10-2013 01:29 PM
icemonkey sport check does not have vita. The best they have would be the cartels. So no mix up or debate on that. If the get them then maybe but they have never had them so I am safe lol

They will have my size for board it is jjust a matter of when (size 154)

you guys are right also the happy hour is a true twin but will not perform as well on the mountain as the raygun but will do better in the park

you guys are right the raygun will ride funny on switch but will carve like a dream on the hill and fly

So much dilemma!

What specifically makes them "more freestyle oriented"? The Cartel has been Burton's bread and butter binding for years now and is a solid freestyle binding in its own right.

People get way too caught up in the minor nuances and differences between bindings. Guarantee half the people posting in this thread couldn't tell the difference between the two. Don't get so caught up in the marketing BS, they're just bindings.
