Yes this model is camber. No rocker can be found on this deck.

Hi, can I ride this board with any bindings or do I need special bindings?
You need to ride this board with EST bindings because the Feelgood ES board has a EST system. I suggest the Burton Lexa binding they are a really great mid-stiff binding.
you do not need just EST bindings. Any Burton disk binding will work.
You can also use forum disk bindings.
However, to get the unparalleled flex and feel, I would highly suggests rocking some ST for the utmost in flex and feel!
Hi All, Thank you for the advice. As a matter of fact, I just bought the Burton Lexa binding and am extreamly happy with them! It makes such a difference, even on my old board.
It might be an obvious question, but what...
It might be an obvious question, but what are the key differences between the Burton Feelgood and the Burton ES Feelgood? I've been recommened to get a Feelgood, but confused as to which one. Also I'm currently riding an Option 153, what size Feelgood would you recommend? And one more...do the Feelgood board graphics change colour depending on temperature?
Good question, theres actually a pretty big difference between the Two...the ES is the Feelgood on steriods, outfitted with all of burtons best tech, its stiffer, lighter, and faster than the Feelgood, better for the advanced rider...and i dont know what size because size depends on your size haha, and your board might be too big or too small for you and i dont have that information...and lastly this board does not change color
Not sure I can say more than Cyrus here. The ES is geared towards a more aggressive rider who demands more out of her board. Stiffer for more stability at speed, faster base and the addition of the Pro-Tip make it a step above and beyond the standard feelgood.
I ended up buying the feelgood ES 150 with the lexa est binding in large. The burton specs state that the 150 is for size M bindings but I had no problems putting the large on it (I wear a size 10 sapphires). No toe or heal drag at all in the 2 times Iâve tried this setup. Probably wouldnât bother putting a non est binding on this board. The conversion kit adds height & weight to the board. Kind of defeats the purpose of getting an ICS board. I tested this out on 5/2 at Squaw Valley in powder conditions (I know, I couldnât believe it either). The ICS system was so awesome because it was a cinch to push my bindings back so I could stay afloat. The whole setup felt so light even though my new board was longer than my old salomon 145. The lightness made sitting on the lift less tiring as well. The stiffness of the board was definitely something I had to adjust to & if I hit an icy area just wrong, I would catch an edge. Had a few frustrating falls, but after a few hours of getting to know my board I started to feel really comfortable. I felt that the stiffness gave me more speed, but also more control while making turns. On 5/9 I went back to Squaw Valley for my last day of the season. The morning conditions were slightly icy and I was again very pleased with my board. I easily shifted my bindings forward a little and again felt very confident in making my turns coming down the mountain. Going over bumpy areas seemed much smoother as well. I felt in total control. Iâm thrilled with my new purchase & canât wait for the next season to begin. I would recommend this board for someone whoâs past the beginner stage. I think I wouldâve been really frustrated if I learned on this board because itâs not very forgiving (due to the stiffness). But if youâre strong willed & not someone who gives up easily, this may be the only board youâll ever need.
If I buy a board meant for someone 150lbs...
If I buy a board meant for someone 150lbs and I'm say, 180'ish is there a problem with that, will it snap out from under me?
haha heck to the no!...the rider weights really dont matter. Im 180 and have used a womens board (long story) for exended peiods of time, i think the "maximum" weight was like 140, but it did fine and i didnt worry at all about snapping
it's not going to snap like a twig if that's what you mean. but the flex will be very different if you're that far from the weight range. whether that's desirable or not is for you to decide.
Won't snap but will probably be a little a soft for you. Some more info would help, skill level, preferred terrain, etc.
Another question about the bindings: I...
Another question about the bindings: I have Burton Escapade binding (not EST). From my research, it looks like I should be able to use it with the ICS system, with the help of a conversion plate. Does the plate come with all ICS boards, or it comes with regular Burton bindings (didn't come w/ my bindings)? Can I get the plate individually somewhere?
hey hey, yes the ICS board should come with the conversion plates (retro plates) that will work with any burton binding. if the ICS board does not come with these, then contact burtons warranty department and they will send you them free of charge

I'm looking for an aggressive freeride board. Anyone has ridden the Burton Supermodel (women's), Feelgood ES, Palmer Liberty (08-09), Rome Blue, or Never Summer Lotus? What's the difference?
I rode the never summer lotus recently and loved it- a bit stiff in the bumps, but held an edge beautifully on mixed hard pack and powder. I can't speak to the differences of the boards as I am on a similar search, but the Lotus is a solid board that allows for high speed with control. It also floated well in the powder.
Does the Burton Feelgood ES only come with...
Does the Burton Feelgood ES only come with the ICS system? I have flow bindings.. will I be able to fit them on this board?
the Feelgood ES is ICS only, and it ONLY works with BURTON bindings (est or not, comes with plates for standard burton binding plates)...so no flow bindings :-(
