Default Need equipment advice

I'm looking at buying a new board this season, probably some new bindings, and some new boots before the end of the week.

I'm 6.4
160lbs
Mostly all mountain riding. On a Salomon Special Magnum with the ERA tech right now.

For the boots, I've found a nice set of Salomon's that I find very comfortable, so I'm pretty sold on those.

For a board, I am definitely looking at an R.C NeverSummer Heritage or Legacy (size 13 boots)
I do pretty much all mountain riding now. In 2-3 years I'll be moving back east, and I figure I can hit up parks then, but for now I'll enjoy tearing down a mountain.

So what board makes the most sense?

Also bindings. I cheaped out on bindings last time, not crazy cheap, but didn't spend much extra on them. What are some good all around bindings for all mountain riding paired up with one of the two boards above. Right now I am getting some heal drag (my back foot toe binding is frayed even), so I'm looking at something that will help that out as much possible.

heal drag isnt from the bindings ( unless you set it towards your heal side of the board too far ) or your board was too narrow for your feet

basically its your preference, but here are some bindings i ridden that i liked for riding everything, k2 sweater, k2 formula, union force, union data, burton triad, burton cartels, burton p.1, flux titan ans super titan, forum republics, nitro blackhawk.
but keep in mind that any of these or other bindings you can ride all over mountain its what you like.
boards basically is same, you can ride anything anywhere it all depends on how much flex you like on a board ( base wise you probably want extruded base instead of sintered, its easier to maintain then sintered base )
again its your preference.. look for things you like on gears such as flex, shape, what type of camber..
you probably get more of an idea what you want after looking into things you like on a board.

I dont think he was yelling at you, more at crzytasu I believe. Unless you've been starting tons of threads asking basically the same question. Don't do that. We don't like that.

Popular binding suggestions are Forces, Formulas, 390's, Autos, SPi's...

Boards, I would go with the Legacy, not as much as a strict freeride board as the Heritage.
