"Cartel" 1/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (4) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Cartel Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  Stiff & Soft, Forgiving, Sturdy
  • Cons:  What? ,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   I didn't like the '09 Cartels (lean forward, you bastard!), but this took some decent lean forward!(see what I did there?) The Cartel's flex felt very good - medium stiff-ish. It was pretty comfortable. I took on medium-sized kickers and made sketchy landings, but the Cartel stayed forgiving enough, but stiff enough to take the hard hit, so I wasn't afraid to put it through some crazy bails. Its flex is stiff enough for bombing down black slopes, and I had a blast. I consider the Cartels one of my favorite bindings, besides the Union Forces.

"Thirty-Two" 1/6/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Thirty Two Lashed Snowboard Boots - Men's
  • Pros:  1. Comfy - hugs feet well+tight (heels!), 2. Warm and COMPLETELY waterproof, 3.
  • Fit:  mid
  • Flex:  mid
  • Shoe Size:  8.5
  • Boot Size:  9

Experience:   I bought the 2010 boot at a local shop. So far I have owned three 32 lashed boots throughout 3 seasons (my fav brand), but gotta say, this is the best of those three boots. These hug my feet very well, except a little looseness on the sides of my feet (maybe my feet are narrow, idunno). Anyways, the boots hold my heels down when I'm initiating turns and doesn't allow an inch of free space. Thus, leaving my feet comfy and dry for the WHOLE :D day of about 15 runs. When I was shredding down some spring slush, it kept my feet very dry and didn't let a drop in. I am very satisfied with this pair, and I'm also going to use this for the next season because my pair still fit great.

"skate shoes" 1/17/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Adidas Campus Vulc Hi Skate Shoes - Men's
  • Pros:  Solid soles, Fashionable (simple),
  • Cons:  Durable?, On the heavier side of shoes,

Experience:   Funny seeing your stuff for sale at a lower price :/ I didn't buy these as skate shoes, as they name it to be. It just looks fine and simple. Also, to me, it feels as though it wouldn't last very long if I put it through some rigorous activities. Unlike a lot of people who prefer comfort, I like to have a hard, solid sole under my feet. This shoe does a fine job of that.
"Earbuds" 1/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 2XL Spoke Earbuds
  • Pros:  Comfortable fit, Unique,
  • Cons:  High price for low quality,

Experience:   The sound quality is around what most earphones provide (good enough, solid). The rubber earbud fits in the ear comfortably. Its color scheme is attractive, and since most people don't use these, it is unique. However, these are not worth the price in my opinion. It broke under 3 months of use (perhaps I was careless) but I can get a $15 pair at a local store, and they lasted longer.
"Process" 1/16/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Burton Process VRocker Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Responsive, Simple, attractive graphics, Powderrrr D:
  • Cons:  A bit unstable @ high speeds

Experience:   I'm not an expert on reviewing boards, but I'm going to try my best at describing my first-hand experience. My bud brought it up to the slopes, and we swapped boards for a couple of runs. First time riding a rockered board. It felt different than my cambered board in flex and the feeling under the feet. Anyways, maybe it was the EST binding on the board, but it felt pretty responsive down groomed runs. It basically FLEW over powder, and held a solid edge on ice (although a little washing-out feeling, should I say?) It felt very comfortable the whole time. I suggested we try bombing down black runs, but I had to put a little more effort in keeping the stick under control, as all reverse cambered boards, it does feel a little unstable. (Squirrelly, is it?) The graphics are simple but wildly attractive. I give it 4 stars. Recommend for Intermediate riders.

I think beginners will have an easy time with this because of the catch-free contact points. Anyways, I think this board might do well in the park.



"Disks!" 1/11/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Retro Disc
  • Pros:  Innovative, Cheap!,
  • Cons:  Not as good performance, Bit heavier,

Experience:   I temporarily borrowed my friend's Forces (awesome!) when my mission's toe strap malfunctioned. Got a pair of these disks from a local shop, and well, I could put it on without any hassle. Good stuff. Makes the board a tiny bit heavier but not to the point that it's noticeable. Like it claims, it pretty much provides good performance, though I could feel a tiny change. (maybe it's just me) For around 10 bucks, this was very worth it.
