Final decision, good... bad?

Hey guys, you're all probably sick of hearing from me, but I really want to be sure that I spend my money on a good setup for this up coming season.Im 5'10 about 135-140lbs. I ride 70/30 mtn/park and I'm getting a Nitro Team Art Attack 152 along with Ride Delta MVMNT bindings. I just wanna know if this is a good all mtn set up before I go ahead and get the order in online.
(I'm ordering from evogear.com has anyone else orderd from there before had any problems or issues with them?)

Thanks all! I gotten a lot of good advice from everyone and I really appreciate it.

The board is completely solid, the bindings are iffy. The delta has a slight point on the base of it right by the toe that can cause topsheets to break because of its rigid flex. The heel cup screws sometimes backed out from them as well, so if you do get them, get new screws asap.

Rome 390s, the ones I would have gone with had they been in stock when I was shopping. Saloman makes a decent binding too and I was looking at their Relay series binding as well.

I've got a Nitro Team board. Definitely will be perfect for the 70Mountain/30park you throw at it. You can even go more park if you want with it. However if you wanted to do more mountain I would of went a little bigger but its definitly a great board. For bindings look at 390s or cartels. You might not like lean on cartels though.

Whats your boot size... you say your 5'10 so you gotta be careful you don't want to much over hang. 155 length might be better. but its all up to you how small you want it man.

The Salomon Relays are nice bindings riding wise. The biggest problem with Salomon is that their buckles are not designed to last. I have a pair of last years Relays and the buckles are shite. Constantly locking up and being a general pain in the arse to get out of. Salomon doesn't seem to like to take input from the everyday user, just their pros. Who are replacing their bindings after a month of two of use, vs a season. That reason alone has me shying away from buying their bindings. Rome and Union both have quality buckles that operate butter smooth.

I wear a size 10 boot so i'm not to worried about having over hang. I think im gonna go with the 152 so it'll be a bit more park based.

Well it kind of came down to either the Ride EX or the Rome 390s. The reason why I'm considering the EX's still is cause I found them for a really nice deal and the 390s are an extra 30 from what I would be payin for the rides
