151 Board and Binding Size

Hi, I'm planning to get the Custom V Rocker 151. But I noticed that on the sizing change, the board says to use medium binding. I currently have the Burton Triad small binding. So, the question is, would a small binding not be good for the 151 Custom board?

BTW, I'm 5'4'' and 130lbs, is the 151 a good size? Or should I go a little shorter?

thanks
tomas

At that size yes you need small burton bindings, you got small feet!

The 151 is a fine size for your weight, but your feet are just small Its a decently sized board, so its hard to tell but if i had to guess you should probably be ok though just make sure to pull the toe ramps of the bindings out all the way and make sure that you get your binding centered from from toe/heel when your boots on and your standing on it.

If you can take some pics with your boot in the bindings once mounted may help to see if there would be too much space...

Arsenic,

Thanks for your feedback so far. Yea, I'm just short/small period... . Hard to find small size of anything for my size...

Yea, I got the toe ramp out all the way. Well, i have the boots and binding (and my old 142 board). You want a pic of the boots strap to binding with or without the old board? I don't have the 151 board, which is what I'm considering to buy. I'll take some pics tonight.

I understand the issue with the binding being too big (toe/heel drag). But, what are the issues if the binding is too small? You can still screw in the binding on the board, right? I guess if my feet/binding is too small, I won't have as much control/leverage to turn back and forth?

Arsenic,

Didn't get a chance to any any pics, but...
I did some comparisons of my old board and the measurements of the new board. Did some estimates, and I think I'm good. The new board should be OK.

thanks for your help.
