which destroyer

Hi. Im just getting back into snnowboarding. I used to ride a burton custom like 148 but I was also a lot smaller back then. I rode for about 4 really good years but then out grew my stuff and Since I was in college didn't have the money to get new gear. Now im out and making money so my question is.

Im thinking of getting the 2007 forum destroyer because from what I have read it's a great all around board and being last year's model I can get one for a pretty affordable price. My question is Should I get the 156 M or W. or should I get the 158 M or W.

I weigh about 150pounds and im about 6 feet tall and my boots are 10.5 so I'm not sure if I need the M or the W

on top of this my local board shop is selling the board for $400 but On amazon its only $250 but on amazon they don't have the wide version. So would the wide be worth the extra $150?

thanks and sorry for the large post.

You don't need a midwide board unless you ride your angles (0,0)...

You'll be fine, as long as you have the 4 hole plate.

I believe the plate only has 3 screws for it.

you can get buy the 4hole plate...or just go to your local shop that sells burton bindings and see if they'll just give them to you. If not they'll probably sell them to you
