Bought these bindings to learn freeriding and I haven't been disappointed at all. Incredibly adjustable: strap length and highback lean are tool-free, get a screwdriver for highback rotation, strap placement, gaspedal, and stance of course. Straps are extremely comfortable, I use a large binding with 11.5 Burton Motos and the fit is excellent, the cap strap is very secure in comparison with an over-the-toe setup and hasn't given me any pressure points. Like other reviewers I found that the ratchets have a tendency to slip when you get them very tight, but I think there are two ways around this: (1) deal with it because when the ratchet starts slipping, it's probably tight enough and more is going to compress the boot and hurt your foot; (2) but if you're really desperate for more tightness, put your fingers on the body of the ratchet while you tighten with your thumb (pressing in towards your boot) so it cannot slip. Since all of the entry to mid level Burton bindings I've seen use the same ratchets, this can't be a Custom-unique problem. Anyway, I've found them to be all-around excellent bindings to learn on, and definitely suggest putting them on your board if you're in the same situation.
