Need help picking a setup
Looking to upgrade from my crap board and bindings.
I have around a $350-$400 budget.
I would love to have an All-Mountain or All Mountain/Freestyle Board & Bindings.
Gender: Male
My height is 5'5.
My weight is 120 lbs.
Boot size is 8.
Experience: Beginner-Intermediate
Could you guys help me with some recommended board+binding setups.
So far I've become interested in the TruSnow Sierra Stunt and Rome S90 package:
Discount Snowboards, Discount Snowboard Bindings, Discount Snowboard Boots, Snowboard Sales, Burton Snowboard Sales
Please help!

Check out some of the specials at Status Snowboards. I have a Uno Series board and I love it. I had never heard of the company, but at this price point, I decided to give it a go and I have been pleasantly surprised.

I imagine the 151 would be a reasonable choice based on your spec's.

Throw on some K2 Formula bindings (Medium).

Highly suggest you try on some boots before ordering anything online. Improperly fitted boots will ruin the whole experience. Still a lot of decent deals to be had.

K2 Raygun is one of the best all-mountain boards available. Never owned one personally, but after trying a friends' I wish I had one as my first board.

Hmmm well i found a really good deal for the 2012 ride machete. So how about the ride machete vs. the k2 raygun. I havent been able to find much reviews on the status uno

Status is a newer company that has a direct to customer sales approach. Because of that they seem to have a hard time getting their name out there. But they are a top quality board with an awesome hybrid camber. Definitely worth looking into. I love my status UNO
