Default Board stolen - need something new

Well yesterday my board/bindings were stolen from my storage unit in my building. Cops are "looking for them" but I realize they are long gone - but it could be way worse.

Anyway, I need a replacement board/ bindings. I was riding a Lib TRS with Burton Cartels and I liked it fine. (I havent owned a wide range of boards but have been boarding for about 7 years and would say I am intermediate to advanced.) I had owned them for a couple years (maybe they were both '09 models). But I figured I would ask for your suggestions as to what new things were out their in my 3 year buying hiatus. I am 6 ft, 180 lbs, and wear a size 11.5 boot but I have the Solomon F22's so the footprint is reduced.

I really only ride pow and groomers. Ill hit a jump here and there but never go into the park for rails, etc. I have been looking at Yes. and Jones but I assume the collective knowledge here can turn me on to a few things I have overlooked. So what do you have for me?

I've got a 2010 Burton Joystick 154 with 2010 Burton Exiles (M) for sale.
As long as you're in the continental USA, I can ship you the entire setup for $200.

The boots should fit into the bindings, I have a 10.5 Kaiju and those fit perfectly into the Exiles. I let a friend borrow them two years ago for a day, and he ran size 13 boots in them. Although he had the straps maxed out, they still fit ha.

The board is really fun, and it seems like what you're looking for. I'm a camber kid, but brought this out when there was new snow at Northstar, since the rocker profile allows for better float. duh.
But I still liked riding this thing on groomers and on non-pow days/in the park. The one thing I hate about rockered decks is that they feel so loose, especially coming off a bigger jump or railing a turn, I'd always wash out. With the Joystick however, it's a stiffer, damper deck than the other rockered decks I've had/ridden and I really really enjoy it. Crushes pow, but is still extremely stable when riding around the mountain.

PM me if you are interested.

That sounds like a good deal!

If you liked the trs with cartels, maybe check out some of the following:

Jones mountain twin (or Flagship if you want a directional board)
Yes Great Dudes (or PYL if you want a stiffer, bigger-line board)
Lib Tech TRS (it's still a great board!)
Capita BSOD (I went from a Gnu Riders Choice [which is similar to the TRS] to this board)
Ride Berserker or HiLife UL (same shape, different price points)

Union Force or Atlas
Burton Cartel or Malavita
Rome Targa or 390 Boss

Plus a bunch more!

This is how I feel! There seem to be a lot of really good options out there. I think I am leaning towards the Yes great dudes. Im not someone who buys new gear every year and it seems like this might last me a few years without an issue.

What about bindings? Are the new cartels with re:flex much better than the ones without?

And thank you for all of the replies
