Channel+EST=Tight

Alright so the last burton that i had was a canyon from i think 2002 and just on pure comparison, though they are different widths, you can see how technology has changed the way we ride the boards and the way the boards ride the mountain. I wasn't completely sold on the EST channel system when i first saw posts of it on youtube, and since i live in Thailand there aren't too many ski shops around (HAHAHA), but after using it for the first time in Japan for ten days, I am completely sold. In the future Burton will probably add another kind of stabilization vice on the binding for them to be mechanically more secure, but after the ride, i foresee no problems with the set up as is. The way the binding mount with only two screw perplexes me, but f the perplex-ion, the ride stance set ups on this thing are infinite. And you can literally jog down in your notebook a quantified precise degree measurement. I do like riding with Palmer PLS mounts under my bindings and you can't use them with these two killer burton items, but i guess you can't have it both ways...unless anyone out there knows a way to do it?So overall, awsome board with alot of pop, stiff but not too, great for backcountry or the park (really awsome for the park, the board actually inspires confidence (danger for the newbs)). And the channel with est is money in the bank
