Help for my board setup plz!

Hey all, this is my first post here on the forum!

I am currently looking to replace my old Firefly Evolution package which I bought 4 years ago when I started snowboarding. I've been searching for about a week on the net and my choice has been reduced to a few, thanks god...

I've started doin freestyle and park fairly recently but I'm really lookin forward to get better at it. My foot size is 12 (26cm) and my old board had a 26cm waist width which was O.K. I am 6th tall and weight about 150-155 lbs.

These are the boards which I prefered so far:

- Lib Tech Travis Rice BTX 157 (supposedly Mid-wide but with 25.8cm waist width) $530
- Ride Dose 156 (Wide)$337
- Burton Custom Wide 156 (ICS or not, I don't know the difference) $375

I haven't looked so much for the bindings but I've really heard some good stuff about the Raiden Blackhawk ($200) bindings, which also look really cool in my opinion.

As for the boots I must say I've no real idea but I doubt I would buy them on the internet, as it really matters to try them first = ).

Anyway, any recommandations, opinions, new suggestions on boards, bindings or boots would be very appreciated. Also, if you know of any better prices than those I listed feel free to gimme the source = P

Thanks to all the community for keeping this forum alive,

Try DC or Burton for boots, those are probably the best.
