Which board for <$350? Nitro Misfit/Team, Burton Blunt? (Mid)wide Board for shoes 10?
I just bought the Northwave Legend boots and plan to buy the K2 Cinch CTS bindings.
I'm just not yet sure about the actual board, yet.
Currently on my list (name, length, waist):
Nitro Misfit (Wide) 155cm, 24.6cm (26.6cm wide)
Nitro Team (Wide) 155cm, 24.6cm (26.4cm wide)
Burton Blunt Wide 156cm, 25.8cm
K2 Brigade Wide 155cm, 26.2cm
K2 Format Wide 154cm, 26.2cm
Weight: 160 lbs
Height: 5'9 ft
Shoe size: 10.0
Skill level: Intermediate
Preferred style: 50% all-mountain, 30% park, 15% rails, 5% powder => All Mountain / Freestyle board
Currently I really like the Nitros, preferably the Misfit.
But I am worried about the waist.
For a shoe size of 10 several people said that I need at least 25.0cm, better 25.5cm. So the Nitros seem to be too small.
The Nitro wide boards on the other hand are too wide...
The Blunt seems to be okay, but actually I'd prefer the Nitros.
What do you think? What waist do I need? Can you recommend any other AM/FS board for my size that are around $350?
Thanks a lot!
Id get a last years Burton Custom. Porters Tahoe has some good deals on them for under $350. the 158 would be a good size and the custome is a great do-all board.
Thanks, but isn't 24.6cm a bit too narrow for my feet?
Also, can you use non-Burton bindings with it?
Yes you can use non-burton binding with it with the baseplate. I have size 11 boots and I ride one of those with no toe drag with a +15-15 stance.
I would throw last year's GNU MTX(nonBTX) Rider's Choice 154.5 and a Capita Horrorscope FK onto that list, or the Sierrascope if they are still selling it for ~$350 with the coupon. Last year's DH or Society can be had for that price range as well
As for the Blunt. If you are an novice shredder looking to advance, the Blunt isn't for you. It's more of a beginner board.
And if you are a size 10 boot, you should be fine with regular width when it comes to your deck.
The Custom is a killer all-mountain stick that can hit jumps, pow, groomers, and hold it's own in the park, I'll agree with that. But only if you can find a deal on last years Cartels
The chanell system comes with plates that will allow any binding to mount up to it.
True, some people have rigged the baseplates to fit some other bindings. However, the discs were not built to fit any other type bindings onto the board (which is bullshit by the way), they were made specifically only for non-EST Burton bindings (3d style)
