Beginners or Budget Riders Have a Great Option With the Burton Custom
The Customs are one of Burtons flagship bindings. They are not super flashy or made out of some crazy fiber that is only found in the Alps or anything, but they are sturdy and great for the money. Although these are by no means top of the line binders they would be a GREAT first binding. One thing Burton does a good job on is their buckles. They are easy to get those first few clicks started to strap in and loosten with a flick (which is HUGE for first time or learner riders). If you are looking to get the best for your money this is definately a good option. If you want a more top of the line binder or have the bones to spare - I would not recommend the upper end Burtons (the P1.1 being the exception) Over $159.99 get out of Burton and start looking at Union.
