First legit stick, need bindings and boots!
 
Hey all, I'm a 24 year old guy from NE Ohio whose gonna be heading out west for the first time since picking up snowboarding 8 years ago. I'm an all-mountain rider with a drive to do some hard carving through powder. My new stick is a 2013 K2 Raygun 160W and I'm looking into pairing a set of boots and bindings with that. The Raygun has a soft flex (i'm 6'4" - 155lbs) so I'm thinking bindings and boots a little towards the firmer side would be best for better responsiveness.

Can anyone give me some good advice for a pair of boots and bindings (size 11/12 boot) if I'm hoping to spend no more than $500-$600 together? I don't care if it's slip in or straps, laces or drawstrings- just that they're quality and are gonna last long. I know that its gonna be my preference, but I'd love to have a list to start out with and look into. Also, do taller boarders usually prefer canted footbeds or not?

Highly recommended that you try on any and all boots to find the ones that fit your feet best. Nice and snug all around your foot(no space in front of your toes), no heel lift, and no painful pressure anywhere(the slightest pain will be multiplied over the course of a day of riding).

From there, pick the ones you like best as far as stiffness and lacing options.

For basic, all-round bindings I would recommend Rome 390's, Burton Missions, or K2 Formulas. All of which you might be able to find in last year's model for money savings.

If u can spend 600 on boots and bindings, the options are pretty huge I wouldn't limit myself to low-midrange bindings. You can get alot of binding for 300bucks.

Get boots first.
