If you want to stick to Burton, you'd be much better off with the Cartel or Vitas. It's not even a remotely stiff board.

Different strokes for different folks, but a binding like the Diodes on a board like a Cobra would be a nightmare for me. IMO, the worst possible combination is a binding that is way too stiff for the board. You'd be wiggling your toes and that board would be all over the place.
