Having ridden on several generations of C60's, I had very high expectations. Sadly, there are two glaring flaws. First, the channel mount is suppose to offer infinite positioning options. But, the dial in the center of the binding doesn't mount in the channel track snuggly so it doesn't measure accurately. This means that whenever you move/remove the bindings, it is very, very difficult to get them back into the same position. Second, what is with the toe pad and the screw adjustment? Unless I set the screw adjustment fully retracted, the top pad pops up and loose! The whole base plate doesn't really seem secure. I'm alittle worried about traveling with the binding attached in case something whacks the toe of the binding and it all pops out.
By the way, I agree with the other review about the right top strap being difficult to get undone. Almost wiped out coming into the lift line today.
I hope these flaws will be corrected in the 2012 model.

Having also ridden the T6 and Custom X in the past, I was surprised by how responsive the 2011 Vapor rides for it's light weight. This is truely a surprisingly light board. The T6 was light but not stiff and folded in half after only a couple rides. So, far the Vapor has surpassed my expectations.
I would say that the only negative is that the maximum length is 162. They should offer at least a 166. Maybe next year?

Over the past 10 years, this is the 5th Burton snowboard I've ridden. While the ride is amazing and by far the best from Burton, the board just didn't hold up. Under normal riding, the board top sheet developed cracks after the 3 day out, and on the 4th day, the top sheet delaminated from the base. I notice that another review also mentions problems with the top sheet. If Burton fixes this issue with this board, they've got a real winner on their hands.

The T6 is a light, fast, stable board. But for the price, it's just not very durable for aggressive riders. After only a couple months of riding, the T6 looks shot. Typically, I can get a solid season out of a board before it's retired to rock-board status. The T6 didn't make it two months. The top sheet is buckled, along with several cracks. The bottom and the edges weren't nearly as durable as the ads suggested. I even ripped one of these claimed super strong edges. Maybe this board is just too light and fragile?

The Burton T6 is an amazing top-of-the-line snowboard for freeriding/all-mountain. Super lightweight, yet stiff. Highly recommended. It’s great that they made the 164W (wide) this year to accommodate large binding, too.
