Picking a Board and Bindings
 
Hey guys, Probably had these questions way too many times

Am looking to buy a board and bindings and wanted to get some advice
boarded 6 times and can link turns fairly confidently.

probably an all mountain board but would like to do some rails etc

Have size 9 Burton Hails.
171cm (5'8)
82kg
have just boarded the resorts around queenstown NZ but will be heading
to the Australian mountains also.

any help would be great, would like to avoid burton also as it is hard to get shipped internationaly

thanks

First of all how much are you looking to spend. If your already know then look for boards in the 155cm area. Then narrow it down to what your going to do the whole day, mountain or park.

would like to find something under $300USD i read a review on a ride - control would this be a good board for my level in a 155
i will be doing mountain alot more than park

The CONTROL has an extruded base, which means its not going to be very strong and that is why it costs very little. Look for sintered.

Well for the board and bindings, it really depends on what skill level you are at. Why don't you go to a store that sells both, and have one of the professionals help fit you out. That way you can see if the boots, board and bindings all feel comfortable.

most of the time the people at the shops dont know anything. they just try to sell you whats the most expensive or "best".
i would suggest looking at Union Force bindings. they sell for $100USD, but you should be able to get some good end of season sales.

I just ordered a set of Union Force's online for USD100 @ 50% off sale. It came down to choosing between the Rome Targa's & Union bindings for me. The Rome's have had alot of good reviews on this forum but with both having similar performance, according to a sum members here, the Union's got my vote coz they were better bang for buck @ 50% off.
