Forum is a burton owned company, just because you had bad experience with a certain Burton binding doesn't make the rest of their shit bad.

Burton, in my opinion, is all hype aimed at the "cool" image of snowboarding. If you want true performance, you have to look beyond the "cool" brands. Cartels are flimsy, and Burton's tech does not provide enough torsional rigidity in all their boards. Elan, Atomic, Volkl, Nidecker, F2, Salomon, K2, Head, Rossignol, all make product worthy of comparison and research when deciding on which board to buy. But nooooooooo gotta be cool and get a Burton, Rome, Technine, Forum, etc... In my opinion, Burton is garbage. But if it works for you rock on. Sure, some of the latter brands I've mentioned have original tech as well, but you can't compete with a company like Volkl or Rossignol that's been around for 50+ years. BTW what's your take on Capita boards?

Love Burtons soft good myself. Most of your reasoning on why Burton is crap sounds like an opinion. Course Burton has been around the longest of most of the snowboard companies. So they do have a history. Course I do not care about what name is on my board I choose boards for what appeals to me.

The customs have a very good rep about and everyone seems to love them. From what I have gleamed about Forum is that they have been using the name to sell some off the lower tech boards at a lower cost. Not to say Forums are built any worse just they are on the lower end of the tech spectrum. Trying to keep Burtons boards as a premium brand.

And for Capita boards I love my B D I. Has good construction and the infused base does hold wax a day or two longer. Prefer to ride my Capita over my Atomic but the Atomic comes out more when I am expecting bad ice conditions.

The season is almost upon us!!!!
