Default 2014 BillyGoat Board Size and Binding Suggestions

Recently I've been doing research on a new board, pretty much decided on the new BillyGoat, as it's a definite upgrade and fits my riding style. I'm looking for suggestions on what a good board size would be for me, as well as bindings that any of you might suggest or know to go well with it for a certain style of riding.

I'm 5'10 150lbs, and I've been riding a 158 traditional camber the last several years. Looking to split my time between groomer bombing/carving, steep trees, and powder when I can find it. Mixed ice coast and out west.

Thanks for the feedback!

Would a 159 be way too long? I tend toward longer boards, but I'm also a little worried about maneuverability in the trees.

Something like a Cartel stiff enough, or should I go further?

I'm about your size and ride 154-155. If it were me i'd go 156. You'll get more float than your current camber deck but also keep the agility for trees.

I'm 180# with a 159 BG split with Spark Afterburners which are bomber stiff, it works great in/out and it rides bigger like a 161-2 but it doesn't quite have the float like my unsinkable 164 Charlie Slasher, but I'd like to have a 156 solid goat for tossin around in bounds...but got an old stiff cambered 155 twin that works great for hot rod'n around.
