I have union "contact" binding that are 3 years old. Will this board work with them?

This board has burton Channel Construction. So your Union bindings will not be compatible. You will need EST bindings, All burton binding will work with this board. This is a great board Enjoy The Shred.

Before buying this board I read every reiew made on it and I was truely expecting a good park board thats should strictly stay in the park, but after riding it I have to disagree completely with every review i've read on it. This board can tear it up outside of the park too. In the park it's amazing but outside it does pretty good too. Though it's not the best for all mountain/freestyle riding it still works. I took this thing on the halfpipe and could pull 540's. I do kinda agree that it lacks edge hold but the frostbite edges helped improve it. Plus lack of edge hold is expected on most v-rocker boards. Stability at speed would be my only other complaint. Once I started to pick up speed it felt slightly squirley but I was going insanely fast and as I said before, this board can handle even pipe. That leads me to the conclusion that this board deserves 4 stars. It's a great board only lacking a few things.
How would the Burton Whammy Bar do on pipe for someone who's at a intermidiate level?

Loose and playful yet holds an edge when you need it.
Drop into front boards without worrying about hanging up, press your nose through that kink, solidly land that dream jump...
I even love riding POW on this thing! It may be the most fun I have ever had on a shred-stick! Seriously, so flippin' fun! totally reenergized my lack of a snowboard career.
would this board be good for just freeriding it around the mtn?

Depends on how aggressive the terrain is and how experienced/aggressive a rider you are. For mellow cruising in the park and around groomers it would be fine. If you're riding a lot of glades and charging steeps then not so much. This is a soft board that's really designed for park. The v rockers ride great in pow (personal experience) but the softer ones like the whammy bar or hero just aren't designed for going fast and railing turns. If you want to stick with Burton I'd probably point you towards a custom (either traditional camber or flying v) or maybe a joystick if you're into the v rocker thing. I personally think the rockers excel in park and pow but don't do much to help someone who already knows how to ride just cruising around the hill.

you should use the Burton EST bindings for this board for the best feel but if you want to use the regular four whole bindings there is an attachment to use regular bindings

If Ride makes a two hole disk then yes you can run your ex bindings on this board.

The Whammy Bar is the jib board you've been dreaming of, all the long summer nights. Jibbing is the wave of the future, and the Whammy Bar is paving the way for mega presses and quad kinks blindfolded. The V-Rocker adds the benefits of reverse camber and the Super Fly Core makes sure you can still crack a high ollie.
One of the best features the Whammy Bar has is the Mid Spoon between the binders. This takes the boards outer inch and spoons it up making sure you don't hook when you are trying to get sideways.
I would recommended this board to anyone that is looking to get wicked in the park or the streets this winter. If you can think it; this board can do it, just take a look at Ryan Paul front flip onto a rail.
Great. Everyone who rides this loves it. It is fun, flexible and handles great.

In the sea of sub $400 jib boards how do you pick one? The answer lies in the Whammy Bar. This board is not just another noodle with a weak core to make it "jibby". Its not only a good quality snowboard, but has the spoon tech that slightly lifts each edge like a...well...spoon between your bindings so you can get your 50s on lock down without knocking out your front teeth when you meet Mr. Rail after catching an edge. Since its only between the bindings your overall board control is not affected on the rest of the mountain.
As a soft jibby board with V rocker tech, this thing will be the best in a quiver as your second park day board for all mountain riders or an only board for the park rat or urban guy who hardly ever cruises the rest of the resort. V rocker still floats like crazy in the pow though if you are so inclined. I see this spoon tech being the next evolution in jib boards and is SUPER helpful especially for the progressing rider transitioning from boxes to rails.
If you can find one, I highly recommend trying to get your hands on the Restricted colorwave with Bob Marley themed graphics. The thing looks siiiiiick.
Can I use my Rome 390 bindings with the retro disk from burton on this board?
December 29, 2010
Yes, if you can adjust your rome bindings so that two holes are parallel with then channel you will have no problem. I think Rome makes a two hole disk. Hit up their customer service and ask. I think you can make it work, and I'll tell you it will be worth the work. The Whammy Bar is fun for sure.

There are probably a lot of riders out there searching through the 2011 Burton lineup wondering where the Dom is? While that board had a great run, it was time for an update and the Whammy Bar is what is replacing it.
Think of the Dom, but with V-Rocker, Spoon Shaped nose/tail & a Rail Ready tune to keep the board playful and your contact points/edges from catching when you sliding rails/boxes. The Channel makes it so you can dial in that perfect stance without any worries and the soft flex allows for easy presses and is forgiving when you lose your focus.
If you're a rail rat that hikes a particular feature all day or you're out on 2am Rail Missions weekly trying dial in that trick for your video part, the Whammy bar is the perfect board for you.
I am debating between the whammy bar and the Easy Livin flying V... any suggestions??
i will basically be riding park and pow this year so i was debating between these two
December 4, 2010
Tough call. The boards are really different. Its all about what you want out of a board and what type of board feel you want. I personally love the whammy bar (review below)...its super fun, flexi, surprisingly versatile, and pretty much rips everything. Butters, jumps, rails/jibs and even pow. The Easy Livin flying v will be way stiffer, but more responsive...and will, in theory, provide better edge hold and overall responsiveness. I think you will be super stoked with either board. (Like I say below though, the whammy bar is pretty much the funnest board I have ever ridden). Good luck.
