how's this for a setup? need suggestions

-board: never summer proto CT 150 or 152
-bindings: union force bindings (or maybe contacts?)
-boots: rome bastille

i'm about 5'6 give or take, size 10.5 womens boots which i think is 8 mens but not sure
going to be riding fast freestyle in icy new england groomers and choppy snow, and jumps in the park with some jibbing
currently on a burton clash but im past its beginner feel by now, plus its way too heavy and its stiff too. want a lightweight setup thats good for all mountain freestyle but can still handle park

Sounds good. For the bindings, if you're not set yet, I also reccomend Rome 390, 390 Boss, Rome Targa, Ride Rodeo, K2 Formula. They are also good bindings. Union Forces are good though,

Proto is a pretty nice board, I actually have the Evo in a 154 and i'm 5'7, so 152 is probably a good choice. The Evo is a bit more playful, but the Proto is just a little stiffer and it has a carbonium topsheet(<---awesome)

I think you have a pretty nice setup there!

390 boss sounds great too, will probably strap into both in the store and see which is the better fit- much thanks!

Evo might be a better fit for a woman on a men's board especially if you can get that 150 on the Evo.

Also, the Targas are too much binding for either Proto or Evo.
