Decided the blow out on Ignition II plates was too sweet to pass up. The end result..... a Spark/Ride/Burton Hybrid binder.
Started out with intention of using the Burton High backs w/ the Ride hoops, but after much grinding, cutting and cursing I realized the weight difference between the Ride's was nil. Not to mention the Burton's canted shapes tend to bang together when skinning, they would not fold down in the Ride hoops and in this configuration seemed unfit for being out in the backcountry.
