Overall I'm happy with it. I haven't had the bolts loosen up on me and I feel just as secure as my old setup (three screws). I agree that it's a new gimmick that Burton has created to push more sales and to get you to stick w/ their brands, but it does function really well.
even though they give you the adapter plate, it doesnt work with all
bindings. i do know that the adapter plates that came with my buddy's
uninc dont fit the 390s hes got.

So if it works, and it does, how is it a gimmick? A gimmick is something useless or it doesn't work at all. Burton is way ahead of the game on this one. It won't be long before you see all the comps having some kind of slot system on their boards.

I was thinking the same thing. It didn't really take off then. The only reason it'll stick around is because Big B has a lot of money staked on this one. Overall, it's not Burton being way ahead, but something like 5 years behind.

And if thats not enough, I snapped two est bolts within one month, whilst riding. I was lucky to walk away, you cant have gear doing that to you on big park jumps...
exactly
note that almost all pro riders like shaun white and kevin pearce all ride the burton 3D setup
the ICS system is great for cruzin around and for the realllly picky rider
plus its about 50 bucks more for the ICS
im gettin a new board after nxt season and if i get a burton board im gettin the classic 3D setup
so much nicer

Most of them I see these days are ICS and I will never buy an ICS board as long as they force you to buy Burton bindings. I do like the looks of a couple of the new boards though...

Anyone know what percentage of Burton boards are non-ICS? for 2010 as well?

my bindings slip around when i'm doing freeriding only. it's most likely due to the plastic washers I have on the screws. I asked for a metal replacement. Hope those work well.

Forum now has ICS for 2010 (as they are owned by Burton).
