Ok I own a Burton Custom X and an X8. The Custom X 158 has probably 20 or more days on the slopes and I have yet had to tighten the bolts, never had em move one mm on me. I tagged teamed the ICS with EST Triads they broke about 15 days into the season, one of the ratchet screws came out and the toe strap came flyin off other than that. Really IMHO I like em, for me it's the being able to position them where ever I want and tweak it. Also I love burton products, ya flame me but I do, personal choice. ( Although I got a skate Banana lined up)!
