My setup, please advise.

Hey guys, I just purchased a Never Summer SL 153 last night and before I purchase the bindings and boots I was going to see what you thought about it. I Just need some advice just in case I'm making a mistake.

I want to start by saying I want my board/bindings/boots to be perfect for all mountain type riding. I want to be fast, carve well, and have the perfect setup to go along with my stick. I can say I'm experienced enough to hit almost any run at Mammoth, but I slowly want to advance to park and jumping as soon as I get my stuff and can get on the mountain.

Heres what I have in mind:

Bindings: 2012 Burton Cartels M
Boots: 2012 Burton Rampant size 9 OR 2012 Burton Ambush size 9


Just in case you need it:
Height: 5, 6'
Weight: 155
Foot Size: 9

Bindings sound like a good choice.

Have you tried either of the boots? Which is more comfortable?

I have Speed Lace myself, and I'm not a fan. Comfort equal, I'd go Rampant for the traditional laces...

That's the reason I want the Rampant, because of the laces, but the response is a little higher on the ambush... But only by 1 number. So I'm really trying to debate, because they both have reviews of really good comfort. I think I'm going to go in to my local shop and try them both on in my bindings and see which ones I like best, then order the boots, or just buy them there on the spot.

I would not bother with 1 degree of responsiveness. Also, not very nice to use up an employee's time getting boots fitted and then buying them online...

Good luck with your purchase!

Thirtytwo boots in my opinion are the most comfortable boots made. I ride the 86's which would probably be a little more flexible than you sound like you want. Check out the Lashed or the TMtwo's. Definitely try any boots on before you buy though.
