I want easy on easy off and will use the board and binding probably 2-3 seasons.
Good starter setup. Burton stiletto bindings would round it out well.
Avoid burton citizens, they are the most entry level binding (cheap components) and you get much better value with scribe or stiletto.
If you are buying this years feather you need EST or Reflex bindings to fit the channel in the board.
If you are buying last years or earlier there's no channel so you need non est bindings, either reflex or traditional.
