No, but the EST system makes it real easy to ajust your bindings, thats for sure. I haven't been spoiled earlier when it comes to snowboard gear. It's been a while since I bought any new stuff, so when I got the EST system it made a big difference. I'm one of those who actually change stance now and then also, so it's practical.

But the new board, bindings and boots made such a big difference overall for me that I'm sure I can't tell the difference between EST and non-EST when riding. The C60's seems like great bindings though!! Mabye thats the one I need for next season?! I have had some problems with my feet, but now with the new boots and bindings its much better.

you kinda can...with the EST bindings, ur entire foot sits flat on the board and it feels more responsive. with the disk, ur foot is slightly raised and humped (for lack of words)

spend that extra money and get urself those ESTs.

C60s usually go for $400+, but since ur getting them for way cheaper, then u might as well pull the trigger

I havent tried it properly in the powder snow just yet, but I'm sure it behaves good there too.

if you are looking for a really stiff board for flying on groomers Custom X and T7 both fit the bill. mind you, if you have big feet (10/11+) you will have difficulty fitting onto a T7, which has no wide version. custom X on the other hand does have a wide version.

since you haven't owned a Burton before i assume you have no EST bindings. this is binding technology specific to Burton boards - both the T7 and Custom X come only with EST technology so you will need new bindings as well. something stiff and responsive like the C60 or CO2 (both top end and both expensive) at a push maybe the Cartels. either way, it wont be cheap buying into Burton

as an alternative, i would suggest Ride Society or, slightly more expensive, Nitro Blacklight or Nitro Prolight. all stiff, all directional, all traditional camber. good luck!
Now you can put any bindings on a channel board.

I meant to put custom X not V I just ordered some c60's from the house board shop.

i recently picked up a Rossi Experience because I got tired of the T6 (still keep it for groomer days), and the fact that it sinks like an anchor in pow... really have to work to keep the nose up, since the nose is so stiff... great through crud though - just blasts through

if you want something "do it all" but still stiff, i'd suggest looking at the Custom X instead
I live on the east coast so always in crude and ice...lol
I have a arbor wasteland,lib tech skunk ape,and a Rome artifact rocker so it would be just for flying on groomers
