I got a burton (maybe the S series) for cheap and I need a binding to go with it. I don't think the spark binding I got will work with the base plate that comes with the board. It has hole patterns for their round disc that is in thier binding system. Maybe called the solid disc 3d binding that they use today.
So the voile pucks won't work and then my sparks won't work.

do you any of you folks know of a lightweight burton (or other) binding to work with this unusual hole pattern?

thanks

Hey gene!

One possiblity if you want to use your sparks..

Backdrop sports in everette has some stock that you can cut and drill yourself. Its one solid peice and would end up being non adjustable. I think you could make it work with burtons hole pattern and be able to use any slider type binding you choose.

I bought some last season and made them so I can go from diy board to diy board without having to drill new holes. They use the Boards original inserts and two ski screws per puck.

Let me know if you want to go that route and need a hand or more info. I have a drill press and a miter saw. Im near gold bar.

thanks. I will take you up on that. Summer is too nice right now to invest more than some typing during work but I will try that this fall in prep for winter.

gold bar is just down the road! who wudda thunk.

You have to make adapters for the touring bracket and the heel lift/pad as well, since those don't match the Voile system/pattern either. If you don't want to mess with doing it yourself, firstlight has some conversion kits:

Gene, i remeber your location after missing out on the sweet free rope deal last summer on cc. Hear you on better things to do in the summer then drill holes in a snowboard. Unfortunatly i am nursing a rotator cuff that has put a dammper on climbing and casting. I did. Go watch john plotz run a couple laps on godzilla laat night while I played belay slave.

Wasn't considering the touring components. Maybe a conversion kit would be the way to go.

Anyhow, give me a holler if you want to get out and do some local splitting this winter. I hardly ever venture outside of the hwy two corridor during the the winter.

Just get a 4x4 disc and insert that to get the Burton bindings to work. I use a pair of old cartels for my DIY split.

You can use Voile pucks

Image

BUT

The problem is with touring
As you can see you can get quite a few stance options if you play around a bit but you will still need to tour with the voile hardware.

The only other option is to insert tnuts

Good luck

Sad to say but it looks like Backdrop has closed it's doors. You can see if Andy still has any left overs though. If not Chair 2 Board Sports sells those pucks too.

He's talking about using the bindings on an old Burton *production splitboard*. The old Burton splits used their own proprietary interface system, totally different from Voile and with different hole patterns. He wants to use a Spark binding, but that requires Voile hardware, hence this discussion of how to get Voile hardware onto the old Burton split hole pattern.

The other possibility would be to actually use the old Burton split hardware (which would work with any normal solid board binding), but you can't get that anymore, and even if you did manage to find it those things were notorious for parts breaking in the field. In many ways, ahead of its time, but in practice, not great on the reliability front.
