Read discussions about other boards and bindings and it will all fall in to place after a while. Happy searching!
Otherwise you can just go buy some bindings, they all work, usually.
haha well to let you know how unexperianced i am with boarding i've only been twice. but i've skii'd alot and i longboard just about everyday during the dry season. i just moved from NE to colorado and snowboarding seems really easy for me...i learned how to ride the mountain of breck in one day...not to say i tried all the blacks i could. but i could push the board i rented to the max and i'm ready for something way faster and more aggressive. it may not be the same. but i learned longboarding with a POS sector 9, when i bought my own loaded dervish and tan tien my skill elevated as well as my riding within the first few weeks, and i feel the same may happen with snowboarding, as long as i get an all mountain board...provided i'll try other terrain.. i'll be okay because i love the challenge of everything new and just didnt know about the binding configurations of the other boards vs. bataleon. my friend just got back from bariloche argentina and said i should get a camber'd board because its better to learn on and they dont even accept rocker board riding as a form of knowledgable experience on the slopes. so i did some research on the TBT and it sounds well rounded and thats about it for my schpeel. but thank you for the information you guys i really had no idea what to expect when searching for a board. thanks again!
