Proto CT/CTX Specific Sizing Questions
Before I get the millions of "Use the search bar" comments (and trust me I read a ton of posts) I wanted to ask a question about my board, binding, boot setup before I order it because I am slightly unsure and my local shop is running out of stock. The board is about to be out of stock online as well so please answer quickly.
Due to availability issues, I only have a choice of the 160cm Proto CT or the 155cm Proto CTX. I'm 5'9", ~180lbs. For bindings, I'm gonna probably pick up the 2012 Burton Cartels and size 11.5 Burton Hail Boots (fitted at the shop). I measured my barefoot at about 27.5cm.
I was wondering if the wide version (26.1cm waist) is going to be too wide for my footsize because of the Burton shrinkage tech. Also, should I pick up the medium or large bindings? Are these boots a good complement to the board and bindings? Sorry for these more obvious questions but I just need some addition reassurance, mainly since I'm spending a decent amount of cash on this, I want to get it right the first time and this is my first higher-end purchase. If you want to suggest any different component to this setup feel free to do so. Much appreciated.
