Question My 2012 setup - need some help

Bought:
2011 Burton TWC Snowboard 156 (PAID $280AUD)
GNU 2012 Park Pickle Snowboard 153 (PAID $500AUD)

What would be a good set of bindings for these boards?
Should i just get one pair of bindings to suit both? Normal bindings with EST converter?


I weigh 170 pounds 5'10 176cm and am an intermediate rider looking to improve in the park.
Do you guys think these boards are a perfect set?

I got the pickle for park and the TWC for park/all mountain as i have heard good reviews on both boards.

Any help advice would be great!

Thanks

burton Customs non- EST would work well for both boards, est is for use with Burton's "The Channel" system. the TWC should be 3 hole, which is for normal plates.

That being said the TWC is kind of a learners board, being really soft and all rocker, you will probably have more fun riding the pickle everywhere.

Thanks for the reply, i got the Pro model of the TWC based on some good reviews. The TWC has the ICS channel system so im looking at getting Non-ICS bindings and use a converter so i only have to have 1 set of bindings for both boards. What do you think?

oh well thats cool.

That would work no problem, Burton malavita, or ride rodeos are compatible with both systems.

As Riley said, the malavita are compatible with both, are the Cartel's only for EST?

They are both, but are a little stiffer than the malavita's. I really like the feel of them and I love the straps.

i just got the '12 cartels as well, i wanted to see what the hype was about. i think its pretty true

great straps and ratchets, good adjustments. i don't really jib but i think they would be a little stiff for that. they are stiff but the base has a bit of give to it. i guess it has to for the re:flex to work properly, you can feel it working when pressing. basically they are very responsive heel-toe and a little flexy side to side. so i can still tweak out grabs.

the malavitas are supposed to be a little softer.

burton supplies plates for channel and 4 hole.

my setup for everything-157 lib-tech banana magic-cartels-ride insano focus boa boots. i ride pretty much anything but jibs.

ride makes great bindings-the aluminum bases are bulletproof, the straps are some of the best. i really like how low profile they are. i've had the LX's for years and just upgrade the straps when they made new designs. The nuts and bolts on the rides seem a little heavier duty than the burtons.
