I am ready to buy my third pair of driver X's and i have no desire to try anything else. I go with the 10.5's and they fit perfect in the medium c60's. For the longest time burton would recommend a large binding with the 10.5 but i did not agree with them and go with the mediums. My only complaint with these boots and everything else burton makes is that they don't last as long as they should. I ride 20-30 times a year and by march of the second season on them they have packed out enough that i am ready for new ones. They start out super super stiff which i like and they eventually break down a quite bit. Most people would probably be fine with them but for me they are ready to be retired or re-sold. I recommendeded them to a few friends and they tried them out and hated them because they were too stiff. One friend took two runs and could not turn on his toes because he thought they were too stiff. He looked like a beginner on them and he threw a fit and went home on a powder day. HILARIOUS.
I would give them five stars but they pack out too quick.
As usual the magna traction is top notch. This board carves like crazy, whether its groomers, ice or chop!!
I was not that impressed with the reverse camber. I am on the 172 and i think the board floats so well with the big nose and narrow tail with the setback stance that it does not make a huge difference. The board rides loose, which is not a bad thing once you get use to it.
The 172 rides much smaller than what you would think. When i ordered the 172 i thought i would rarely ride it but it's my everyday board now!!
I can still ride switch even in powder but I don't dare try and land switch in deep snow.
The board i was riding before the 172 was a two year old lib tech powder mullet without the reverse camber but had the magna traction.
I was suprised to read a review that claimed it was not that stiff and more of a powder board.
I have been riding 20 years and this thing holds an edge in chop and and bumps like no other.
I was riding a lib tech dark series that is insanely stiff and it got nervous at high speeds but the mullet does not.
I usually only ride powder and i have no desire to ride anything but the mullet.
