Bindings to go with a Never Summer SL

Ok after two years of looking around and argueing with my parents I am able to get my first snowboard, I have chosen the Never Summer SL as I more freeride than park but still want to do some jumps once in awhile.

My problem is what bindings, I was going to go Rome Targa's or something but I don't know if thats the right choice. So Would you please help me on my search?

I'm just over 6ft and roughly 135LB, with a size 10 shoe (Not snowboard boot size as I haven't got them yet). I'm also 17 so I shouldn't grow much anymore. Also I was going to go for eathier a 153 or 155 board so if anyone can suggest witch size would be better it would be much appreciated.

Thank You!

Buy boots first and then find binders that fit your boots. This thread is started every single day it seems..

Buy boots first then bindings then board in that order is usually the advice you will get.

Careful with your selection. Do not go into the stiffer range of bindings for this board. Look in a brands 75% stiff binding or you'll find them too over powering on the board.

CO2s would be the stiffest I would go from Burton...and even then id be looking for something a little softer like the Cartel.

SF45s might have a nice compatibility as well.

I have some k2 formulas on my SL and love the combo also I would say a 155 would be fine for you, I am sure you will start to gain some weight soon.

Thanks guys for the binding tips! Its greatly appreciated. This Friday I'll be going boot shopping but i'm just wondering since some boots are more stiff then other's should I be looking for a Med. flex boot for my style of riding?

After trying over 10 different pairs of boots out I have decided to go with the Burton Ruler's in a 8.5. It feels super snug but the guy at the shop said after a few days riding they will become more spaced out and even more comfy. I haven't bought them yet as I want to look online for prices. Bindings wise i'm going to go with the Rome 390 Boss bindings.

Below is what I plan on getting and the cost if I was to get it from my local shops.
$579 Never Summer SL 155cm (3 year NS warranty + 1 year store warranty so total of 4.)
$250 Burton Ruler 8.5
$289 Rome 390 Boss S/M

I've looked on evo.com and I could get the Never Summer SL + Rome 390 Boss shipped to Canada for $925. But I've never really heard of evo.com, so are they a reliable site? I hope so as there prices are really good compared to local stores.

Any tips or places to look for better deals would be helpful!

Thanks

Evo.com is good, I've used them a few times and been happy with the freight costs.
