Advice on New Gear ?!
Hey guys.... So I've been browsing forums, reviews etc for a couple weeks now and have narrowed down my search for some new (my first!) gear. I've only been snowboarding twice - inconsistently link turns, but am looking forward to getting my own board etc and getting out about 8-10x's/yr.
Wt: 115 lbs
Boots: 7 wmns
Beginner, probably won't do much/any park riding.
Location: recently moved to Ontario, where I hear conditions are generally icy...
I'm hoping to spend under 250 on a board that will progress with me, and am trying to decide between last year's models of:
-Rossignol Circus Amptek 147cm $200
-Roxy Silhouette 146cm $250
-Burton Feather 149cm (? too long; I've noticed some feel a beginner may progress out of this board quickly?)$225
Any thoughts/opinions would be greatly appreciated! Despite hours and hours of searching, I haven't been able to find much info online...
Bindings: I've found a great deal on K2 Charm ($70), but can't find any reviews on these.... vs Burton Stiletto vs??
the most comfortable boots I've tried have been the Burton Bootique and I've read (?incorrectly) that it generally works better to have the same brand boots as bindings?
I've been searching for used gear for over a month, and unfortunately haven't had any luck.
I've definitely new to this and would appreciate any advice available!
Cheers! Enjoy the holidays....
