Hey people, I've been skiing for 23 years and am moving out to Mammoth this winter and leaving the skis home and converting to snowboarding. I bought a new Burton Clash '08 155 for $180 and am trying to figure out what bindings to put on it. I'm 5'8", weigh 160lbs, if that is a factor. My shoe size is 9.5 US.
I'm looking at getting either Burton Cartel, Mission, or Custom bindings. Found them for prices of $120, $120, and $96, respectively. Any recommendations? I've heard the first 2 are awesome, but that the Mission's might be a little more durable...? I'd also be open to getting Ride bindings if someone made a strong case.
And while I'm at it, anyone got a great pair of boots to recommend for this setup? Looking to spend under $200 on boots...
Thanks a lot, appreciate it.
