Burton Nug Flying V Restricted - fun ?
 
Another forum friend is selling this years Burton Nug Flying V Restricted 146 for a good price ~$220.

I am looking for a fun board to play around with all over the mountain. I read the good ride reviews and they concluded "awesome".
Burton Nug Flying V 2014 Review, Rating System & Buyers Guide

The only thing I couldn't find is how good it's in powder.
Anyone tried it and can give it their thoughts?

Is 146 to big for me (remember it rides 5" shorter than a normal board). I am 5'6" and the bathroom machine says 150lbs.

Suggestion for suitable bindings?

I found Burtons diode EST bindings. Is this a good combination with the Nug?

Only if u like really stiff bindings

Go with a med flex binding, also they recommend 8-10 cm shorter than your normal board size.

Ok, thanks. I will search for a medium flex binding. I went wrong in translation from cm to inch:)

I found two possible bindings:
- Burton CO2 (2011 model, used 20 times)
- Burton Malvita (2013 model, used 2 times)

According to the good ride both are softer in flex than Diode.

Pro and cons?

Malavita is a pretty decent match.

Oh, and do not believe a word the crooks at TheGoodRide are writing.

I think the postage will be the most expensive part - I live in Sweden:)
