People still ride and LOVE! FPs. It will depend on the year and condition. (Top damage, base damage, is it concave?, etc.) Pic.s would help alot to determine year and condition. There are people here that have every Burton catalog ever created. With a pic.they could tell you the year, specs.,etc. Once you have that info it's what the market will bear. I would rename the thread 7.1 FP

Chris Klug sells old burton boards on his site - I think he was selling FPs at $175...but he didn't have and longer boards. boards over 170 usually are worth a little more. Can't guess a value without seeing it though. need to know what year and what condition.

Can you tell me what I would need (other than boots, of course) to make use of those bindings? Are there heels or something of the nature required?

Thanks-

Brad

Just snowboard boots and from the looks of the pics one more screw in each binder......

They are spring loaded like a rat trap and the heel locks up when you step down on the heel plate, you then push a level to reset.

That's where I was going with my previous question-

Initially I thought the bails were just the step-in and force on the toe piece.

It looks to me that some type of additional device might be needed to secure the heel.

Honestly, I am a 20-year softbooter and although I own a few 5-hole alpine Burtons with the old rat-traps, as well as a pair of MGX's, I haven't had enough faith in them to use them. I know little about the hard-boot setups and step-ins. This is why I wanted to clarify what I need to use these bindings.

Any additional info would be helpful.

Thanks-

Brad

I thought they were rat trap style, too, but whats with the metal hooks on the side (where intec pins would be on an intec heel)?

I have those same bindings. I assumed they were rat-traps. The metal hooks are actually what holds the heel bail up when it is set (just before stepping in). There are cams on the ends of the bails which go into those cutouts. They don't really bother anything, except sometimes when you have your board in the trunk or something they'll catch on stuff.
