Default Buying Bindings and Boards tomorrow! Need sizing advice

Second season, passing my old stuff to my older brother.

I bought size 10.5 Burton Rulers which have size smaller footprint (9.5) .

Which bindings do you guys prefer for all mountain? -

I was thinking of union forces/contact pro / maybe some burtons . I went last season with 5+ year old gear and they were good for the basics.

Do you think a size 9.5 footprint works better with a M/L or L/XL?

Thanks
(also if you want to suggest a board that would be cool too!)

What do you plan on doing with said board and bindings? Laps in the park, groomers, freeride, etc? The binding size is going to be based off manufacturer specs.

As far as help for board suggestions folks will need to know your weight, and location of where you ride.

Get size L binding...they work fine even with 9.5 in most all bindings.

If you want a fast stable groomer that can perform in pow....look into the Nitro Pantera or Rome Anthem. You wouldnt want to be in the park with these boards but for crusing, bombing, carving and just kicking everyones ass to the bottom there is nothing that will compete with a directional full camber board. My 163 Salomon burner does great in Powder as well and I weigh in at 205lbs.

Buy my Medium flux SF45s.
I wear a 9.5 of vans cirro those things are like 10.5s they're massive
It fits perfectly fine.
Only selling because i don't need two of the same bindings for one board

With US10.5 Burton boots you definitely want M size for Burton bindings (note this thread where the poster found that the L Burton bindings where too big to center his boots with the US11 Ruler).
Could probably go either M/L or L/XL for Union - my M/L ones worked both with a bulky US10 non-Burton non-reduction boot and US9.5 Burton boots.
