Advice on new setup

I am creating an All Mountain setup.

I recently bought 2012 Burton Imperial's. I decided they were better than the Burton Ruler's that I first considered.

I want to pair these together:

2012 Burton Imperials
2012 Never Summer SL
2012 Rome Targas


Do you think this is a good All Mountain set?

Never tried Burton Imperials... but have ridden multiple years of NS SL ... Rome 390s (which in past year were a little too flexy for hardcore freeriding, although my 2011 390 BOSS are decent). So yes it is a good board/binding setup for all-mountain.

Thanks, now I'm trying to decide what length of board to get. I have never bought an all mountain board before.

I am 5'11"-6'0" tall
165-170lbs
Shoe size is 8.5 mens

This is off the neversummer site

155 or 158 depending on how much you want to charge and how much powder you think you'll be riding.

I'm 5'9" and 155 lbs and I rode a SL 155 cm. So either 155 or 158.

I want a balance between stability charging down the slopes and maneuverability on the rest of the mountain. So I'm leaning towards a 158
