Nitro Magnum+?

Hi,
I am thinking about buying my first ever snowboard. Previously I always had rentals but due to my sizes this wasn't optimal.
Here are my sizes:
2,00m long
95kg heavy
size 15 boots (Burton Ozone)

For the board I am almost certain I will buy the Nitro Magnum 168 due to the 27,8 waist (i dont want toe-drag 4 sure)

For the binding I have no clue on what to buy. My interest of snowboarding is all-mountain. I want to do some backcountry but also be able to do some jumps (i am NOT a park junkie). Now i have looked at some threads here on the forum and I narrowed the bindings down to:
Ride: SPi RX or delta
Rome: Targas/ 390's
Raiden: ?? don't know anything about those bindings
Flow: not optimal due to the instrap techniques used
Burton: not very durable i've heard

I hope you guys can help me because the season is starting very soon!!

I think that board would be perfect for you, I'm planning on picking one up next off-season, due to monies available, I have ridden it but it was an older model, an '07 I believe. I have yet to ride the new model. That size is a good size for you due to your build. I can't speak to the bindings you mentioned because I haven't ridden them.

P.S. I really like the Magnum and I'm sure you would enjoy it, oh and the size I rode was also a 168.

Take yourself to higher places.

get the targas or arsenals, not the 390s - 390s are park soft. or the ride cad or spi - i'm digging the cant beds or wedgies or whatever they call them.

With a size 15, you might have trouble with the Romes. The sizing chart says the L/Xl fits size 9 to 14. Definitely bring the boots with you if you are buying at a shop.

If you are looking for a good deal online, you can take an extra 20% off outlet purchases at Evogear + free ground shipping. I got some 08/09 Ride RX's from them for $92 bucks shipped. I took them out for the first time over the weekend and they performed well (although conditions were ice & rocks so it's hard to give a real review). I got the XL's and a my 13's definitely aren't maxing them out. Also, it doesn't say anywhere in the description, but you can rotate the highback, which was a pleasant surprise especially since the flatback highback doesn't wrap around the upper part of your boot.
