Bataleon Boss board size and bindings

After doing some searching I really liked the reviews on the Evil Twin. Well now with the Boss being an evil twin on steroids why not? I'm 5"11 180lbs with a 10.5 boot. I would like to go with a 154 but I'm worried about boot overhang. They make a 156W and a 157 also but was trying to go smaller for easier spins and tricks. The bindings that caught my eye are the 2014 Flux DL bindings. What's your thoughts/opinions on them? Thanks guys!

don't get the wide one. you won't have overhang issues with regular boards.

I'm 5'11 180 with size US 11 boots and I have an Evil Twin 154.

I've never had any trouble with toe/heel drag and my boots do overhang a fair bit. However if I were to purchase the board again I'd get the 157 without a doubt!

180 lbs is already over the recommended weight range for the 154, and if you're an aggressive rider I think you'll appreciate the little bit extra of everything that the 157 has over the 154. Don't get worked up about the 154 being easier for spins etc, I mean you're 5'11 180 after all.

Cheers.

Thanks man but why would you get the 157? Does the 154 feel unstable or slip out from under you a lot? Also does anyone have any input on the Flux DLs? How are they compared to say the Rome 390s which are a popular freestyle binding?

No, I find the 154 stable (all things considered) and very quick, and TBT can flatbase better than anything imo. I've had the board wash out while carving hard, but I was riding beyond what the board spec was capable of handling, it wasn't the boards fault. The board is awesome.

157 has a longer effective edge, which means more hold (and at 180lbs) that's why I'd get it.

(Oh, and with the added bonus of less overhang!)
