Customs are perfectly suitable and capable bindings - reportedly Shaun White (think of him what you want) uses them for some of his riding. They are not lacking so much in performance but more in the areas of adjustability and potentially comfort (lack of padding on ankle strap and cushioning on base plate). However, if they fit your boots well and you find them comfortable, then you should be just fine riding them.Ok so for the 2013/2014 season I bought a Burton Custom Flying V 2013 paired up with Burton Custom Restricted Re:Flex bindings.
However some friends have said the customs may be too soft a binding for my riding style?
I ride 85 percent of the time at a small local resort doing buttering, 180s off side hits, hitting boxes, and doing various grabs and backside 360s off small to large jumps. The other 15 percent I ride in the mountains mainly nuking it down groomers and doing 180s and 360s of side hits. Last season I did all this type of riding on union forces but found they were rather stiff so I bought these customs wanting something a bit softer and playful. Was it a good choice?
BTW, there was a dude with an almost identical question here.
