Burton Custom Bindings

How do people feel about the burton custom bindings? Ive been crushing on the custom frosted whites. I havent tried any bindings with the "toe cup" strap yet, only the traditional upper and lower strap design.

I have the new and older Burton Customs.
Don't plan on switching to any other bindings any time soon.

There very comfortable and support my boots very well.

I have a new pair of 2008 custom detox... not overly impressed so far. Toe cup fits funny, I am riding medium bindings w size 9 mens 32 boot. Seems like I have to set it super short like they used too big of strap for a medium binding.

Main prob is the straps and ratchets. The big (top) strap is too stiff for my liking, it doesn't conform to the foot well. In cold weather the ratchets slip (talking -19 celcius) Just feel cheap to me which I guess they are for burton. I also have a pair of k2 auto which are light years better but then I paid nearly 3x more for em

Jenzo was just stating for me that you're a dumb head.

I tried out the Customs to see if they were better than my Ride Deltas. I had the older red ones, two seasons ago and I got some killer calf cramps from these and I didn't like that they were made of plastic. I see people rocking them a lot though so they must work for a lot of riders. I know Burton makes good bindings but they are tough to afford haha.

Thats the only disadvantage about the customs. It seems like there made of cheap plastic
