Official Binding/board review thread
All righty.... so to start this one off anyone hear anything good about the technine MFM Classic binding? I do mostly park, less focus on jumps more on rails.
"Have you ever spidermanned a ho? Its when you nut in your hand and web that bitch."- Alex_G
Burton mission 0607[bindings]- its a good all around binding, its good in pow, all mountain, and park, the straps are not as strong as i thought they would be, same with the rachets, its broken off a few times, the cap strap is also flimsy and wont stay in place, due to the fact that the rachet on the strap do not tighten after a certain point which gets really annoying, because halfway down a trail i will find the strap dragging under the board
Burton Dominant Slick[board]- I would highly recommend to NOT get this board, my top sheet is peeling back, where the board does have edges, they brake off and the fact of not having an edge on the sides get really annoying when u try to stomp tricks on semi-icy landings and fall on your ass, the board does not grip the snowvery well at all, but in park its good because you hardly ever catch an edge, the bottom of the board gashes really easy and its a bitch to fix.
all in all
not not buy anything burton, its not quality stuff...

^ Burton you got to love it.
any way here to review union forces : the most kick ass all mountain binding on the market. let me stat this first i am 6'2" 287 and i have busted just about every binding out there. not the forces. they are seriously legit. and almost completely indistructable. base plates solid, magniesium hell cup did i metion the heel cup was adjustable ( ibeleive they are the only binder on the market with that) and the responsivnes is amazing all and all if you want the best binder on the market go with unions. Downside they are a little bit heavy campoaried to say the MFM for park but what they give up in weight they make up for elsewhere.

Only the Force-MC's have Magnesium heelcups, most of the other Union bindings have Aluminum heelcups. But none the less, Union bindings seem pretty beefy. I got myself a pair, but have yet to ride them. I'll post up a review when I get the chance.

Lib Tech skate banana 152
I know mad people who hated on Lib Tech before they put this board out and then all of a sudden it was all over the hill. That being said this is not my first lib board but it is definitely my favorite. to put it simply this is the most fun snowboard i have ever put bindings on. if i were to describe skate banana in one word it would be "butter". Need some extra steez in your nosepresses? the banana will deliver it. Not only does the skate banana preform well on jibs but its a beast on jumps as well. the Magnetraction really comes in handy when landing on icy trannys. Now what else would you like in a shred stick? Powder Performance? met too. Well once again the skate banana performs like a champ. The Banana Tech allows you to lean back more than your favorite rapper Fat Joe. Your can just plow thru all that fluffy stuff leaving your friends on their lesser boards behind. Although if you are mainly riding powder i would recommend a larger size Skate Banana(156,159). With all that being said the bottom line is that this is a board that can be used everywhere on the mountain and performs like Michael Jordan in the playoffs.
