1st Set-up

I'm getting my first set-up soon and this is what I've been lookin at. Could you tell me what you guys think and if I should change something. I'm a 156 but I have a size 11 boot, so I'm not sure if my boots might catch, or if that's ok

I wanna get a burton custom


(the one on the left)


With some cartel bindings




And I'm not sure about what boots to get with that. Probably the Hails. Not sure yet. Suggestions?

What do you plan on riding in the future? Since you're a beginner I'm going to guess all mountain and groomers?

life IS good.

This is the thing...There is absolutely nothing wrong with any of the equipment you're looking at, but I think you can definitely do better for less $ with a board and bindings from just about any other company. You're gonna hear a lot of opinions in response to this post. Burton makes great stuff, but generally it costs more than the equivalent from a different company. Mission's are great bindings and the Hails are a good boot. The custom has been around for ever but it's just an O.K. board in it's class. See what others have to say and listen to the opinions as there are a lot of knowlegable people on this forum and it can perhaps open your eyes to some of the other brands available to you.

What would be some better boards for the money? I'm pretty new to buying boards so Burton just came to mind

also def. check out maybe a 2006 custom if youre stuck on getting that. they can be significantly cheaper, and snowboard technology does not change very much at all year to year.

Alright so I've been looking around for other boards and one that really stuck out to me was the Rome Agent. How does the Rome Agent compare to the Burton Custom?

The agent is Rome's Custom Killer!!! They're both good boards but Rome is by riders for riders...The Agent is consistently one of the highest rated boards on the market...

Ok so after some research I've narrowed my board choices down to 4. I'm looking for a good all-around board.
My choices are:

Lib Tech TRS MTX
Rome Agent
Never Summer Premier
Burton Custom

Also I was was wondering if I could use any bindings and boots with the boards because I know that neversummer and Lib Tech don't make bindings or boots.

Thanks guys

How long have you been riding? Cause as awsome of a board as the Agent is and I'm speaking from experience cause I own and ride one. It really is not the best choice for you if you are just starting out it's tends to be a little bit to agressive for a beginner. You may wanna look more towards the Crail. But I do recommend Rome boards. And If you do end up with an Agent hook yourself up with some 390s for bindings they really work well together.
