"cheap!" 2/13/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2009 Technine Mfm Pro Snowboard Bindings
  • Pros:  nice footbed,
  • Cons:  buckles, buckles, buckles
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   bought these for a great deal. figured with the name they had to be good. i guessed wrong. i could not for the life of me get the buckles to stay tight. they kept coming loose after regular carves and also during presses. within one ride down the mountain i had lost the toe cap screw. i know everything was tight and i am very meticulous. the T screws are really cool and the binding looks to be a nice choice but the quality is missing. the toe cap itself doesn't sit right with K2 boots, (t1s and Darkos). dont even try to jump with them. the second i would land i would hear all the straps loosening up.

  • Name: 2010 Burton P1.1 Snowboard Bindings
  • Pros:  mid flex, super comfy, super light
  • Cons:  base broke,
  • Flex:  mid

Experience:   i own 2 pairs of these thats how much i like them. after 2 hard seasons of all mountain to park one of the bases broke in between the straps. i came off a rail with a big drop and landed a little crooked and they snapped. i am not saying this will happen to yours but it you ride really hard this can occur. for the price they are well worth it. another great burton product. the flex is strong enough to keep you up on big jumps but soft enough to give great responsiveness to your board. the buckles are top notch and the straps are really plush. beside the one breaking on me i have had great luck with them that i put them on 2 separate boards.

  • Name: 2012 Union Contact Pro Snowboard Bindings Men's
  • Pros:  flexible, stable, comfortable
  • Cons:  none!,
  • Flex:  soft

Experience:   i love these bindings. they are super light and super comfortable. the straps are very supportive. they have great flex but still strong enough for bigger landings but soft enough to not hurt your feet. with the combo of a rockered board they give the ultimate board feel. since only the baseplate touches the board it allows the board to move freely and flex the way it should. it really makes you feel the responsiveness of the deck you choose. the foam bottom structure is great for impact. i broke by tib/fib and have 2 plates and 12 screws. my ride alphas hurt extremely bad being they are all metal.if you have foot issues and require a comfortable binding this is the way to go!
"Booter killer" 2/12/2013

  • Name: 2012 K2 Parkstar Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Jumps
  • Pros:  Poppy!!!, Sturdy,
  • Cons:  Not as fun as a weapon,

Experience:   From going to a www to this board is a night and day difference on jumps. If you are an avid jumper this is a solid board for you. Has the pop and stability to bomb the hill and float the park jumps. If you are looking for more of a softer park jib board that your not going to hit the 40ft+ jumps I'd go with a www rocker. If you are more of a begginer I would stick to the www as well
"Board snapper " 2/12/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 K2 WWW Rocker Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Rails
  • Pros:  Super fun park board , Poppy and buttery,
  • Cons:  Not sturdy for jumps,

Experience:   I own about 12 boards in my collection. Out of all this was a fav. One of the funnest park boards out and has been for the past couple years. This board presses and butters super easy. Not to good in chop and higher speeds. Has decent pop for such a flexible board. Light as well. Unfortunately I landed a park jump in the back seat and the tail snapped in half. On the same jump with a capita ultra fear fk I did the same thing maybe even a little harder and the board held up to it. If you are looking for a park jibber this is a great priced board and super fun. I would recomend the park star if you are looking to take it to the jump lines.
"No metal front edges?!?" 2/12/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2013 Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard Grey/Black
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Carving,Chop,Groomers,High Speeds,Powder
  • Pros:  Great on ice , All around shredder,
  • Cons:  No metal edges on tip and tail, Delaminater,

Experience:   Board rides great. Great for all skill levels. The magnatraction can be catchy on boxes. Rides great through all kinds of snow. Little on the heavy side. Board delaminated on front tip. Also I clipped a box and the whole nose cracked. Lib tech does not warranty that because it was physical damage. I don't know why they didn't have a full metal edge. Be careful if u like to ride tree runs not to run into anything. I recommend this board to someone who is looking to progress on all mountain riding. Not so much park
"Edge splitter" 2/12/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2011 Rome Graft Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Jumps,Rails
  • Pros:  Poppy,
  • Cons:  Weak sidewalls,

Experience:   Board is super poppy. Locks rails really nice. Does good thru chop. Sturdy enough for mid size booters. Had 2 of them with the same problem. Under the back edge of the binding the edge completely split and separated from the base. It looked like a pocket under the bindings. Enough that I could stick my finger in it. Both got warrantied. The warranty process was faster than capita.
"love hate relationship" 2/11/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Hate Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Butters,Jibs,Low Speeds
  • Pros:  v rocker in pow, buttery ,
  • Cons:  unstable at speed on groomers, tip and tail delamination,

Experience:   rode this board for a half of season, was excellent in pow. the v rocker makes for easy cruising with not having to rely on the back leg as much. the tip and tail are super buttery, almost too much for bigger jumps. the board is very forgiving and doesnt catch edges. for rails it comes detuned right out of the box. great for presses since its drastically rockered by the V. for spinning off jumps this board will help with sketchy landings and not catching edges. same goes for spinning off rails and jibs. one problem with the V rocker for rails is not locking too good on boardslides because of the V shape. my buddy had the flat version of this board and when we switched it is a huge difference in the catchyness of the board. if you are looking for a jib board and your area gets alot of pow i would go for the v rocker version. if you are an avid jibber and dont get that much pow the flat version would be a better choice. another issue i have is the tip and tail delaminating very easy. after the half of season with the board the tip and tail are peeling like a banana. because of that i give 3 stars.

also on hard pack at speeds its very unstable when leaned back because the front end wants to point upward with the v rocker. stick to pow with the V



"a tank!" 2/11/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2010 Burton Love Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Groomed,High Speeds,Jumps,Switch Riding,Ungroomed
  • Pros:  solid board, a true tank,
  • Cons:  a tank, heavy,

Experience:   rode this board for a half of season. first thing that comes to mind is this board is a tank. indestructible. does great through chop. feels super sturdy on booters of any size. it was a little on the stiffer side. for a camber board it floats really well in powder with the stance centered. the board is definitely on the heavy side. the sidewalls are very solid as well. i feel this is more of an all mountain board rather than a park shredder moreso because of its weigh and stiffness. the tip and tail shape helps tremendously cutting through packed pow and groomers. also for a non wide board this deck is on the wider side.
"Ultrafear fk" 2/11/2013
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2013 Capita Ultrafear FK Snowboard Men's
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Use:  Boxes,Rails
  • Pros:  Solid base, Poppy , Great jib board
  • Cons:  Inserts need help, Not good in packed pow,

Experience:   Great board. Rode 1 season on it. Had a problem with a screw insert breaking lose. Insert broke inside board. Couldn't get binding off. Got it warrantied through my shop. Took a very long time. Not to good in packed pow. Since the front and rear do not curve up too much at tip and tail it kind of holds u up when carving around. On groomers the board is fine. Not to sturdy on 40ft booters and up. Great flex for presses and rails. Not to sturdy bombing hills and going through chop. I ride mostly park and ride hard. I'm also on east coast ice. I feel the board is very similar to a stepchild jibstick with the way the board is put together. Almost identical.
