Exclamation Advice on my Selection ? (new board)

so yes i am getting a new board recently but i want some advice on the boards bindings that i have picked.... (i havent actually bought them yet so i was wondering on the best combo base on the items i have picked)

i am an all round rider so mountains parks everything equally intermediate - advance rider

Boards

Atomic Axum vs Atomic Hatchet vs Burton T6

um.. all three boards seem really nice my initial bet was axum cause it seems like a better board then the hatchet but was unsure of its performance outside of the park.

Bindings

Burton Mission vs Burton Cartel

It seems to be that cartels are an upgrade of mission ? but on the other hand mission seems more like an all round binding to me but both are good bindings based on reviews that i saw.

Boots

No friggen clue any advice would be nice (old one almost worn out)


thx in advance for any help or comments

You're totally screwed! What the hell were you thinking!

na I'm kidding, you got a huge price gap in your boards though.

1) Atomic Axum = Park board from what I know

2)Atomic Hatchet = lower end but good value Atomic Board

3) Burton T6 hella expensive but good all round board

Whats your budget? From experience unless you get a good price stay away from Burton bindings, at least the missions.

missions are softer than the cartels

why are you limiting you choices to atomic and burton.

also check arbor, rome, never summer, k2, lib tech. And with the t6 i rode it didnt impress me at all. Especially for the price. Also, i felt the vapor was a complete waste of money. Dont go with the burton hype. There are still great decks out there from other mfgs

Nothings wrong with atomic boards, just kind of low end of your price bracket... why would you pick like, a super expensive over priced board and a budget board? Why not something in the middle that fits your riding style?
