new setup drop OP's in here

So screw the zumiez thread just not worth it.

went to bergers down in binghamton (where i ride)
5"11
220
inter-adv rider.

Potential setup

Capita outdoor living 158 08'270
10. Burton moto 09 (orange 130
09 burton cartel (orange $215
With our tax im looking at 700.....im not feeling that price at all. im an allaround boarder i use the whole moutain. and park.

I suppose i could see if he can take some money off since i am buying a whole package thing... but i hate haggling or just doing it in general. so what other options do i have here? Boots i gotta try on so buying online is not an option. my OG goal was 500 and that got blown to shit. the cartel's look so dope with the board and boot. i realize that the boot n bindings r 09's i'm sure their are others i could look at. just don't know what.


also

Vs.

whose got the edge



I was looking on ebay and found these thoughts??

Morrow Radium 159 Snowboard + Bindings + Boots - eBay (item 150290791919 end time Oct-03-08 16:58:51 PDT)

i found some orange aresenals so unless the guy at Bergers cuts me one. i think i may just buy bits n pieces around.


*edit. i just found out something. if i buy things as a package. i still have to put it together... and i assume that costs as well.

get 08 boots and bindings. That should cut quite a bit off the price.

Usually not much changes beyond the design and a few minor tweaks. And if there's a huge change, you're probably better off waiting until the reviews on it come in unless if you've got a bunch of cash to spend so you can play with the newest gimmick.

Considering you can find last year's stuff at around 50% off, its more than worth it. New stuff's for rich kids.

Depending on your state, you could save the tax by buying online, but then shipping usually eats up that savings. For getting everything, you are going to have a tough time getting quality for $500; I think your best bet if you like everything you got here is to try to get a discount for a package deal and if not, I think you are getting all this a a decent price.
thank u i will take rome into consideration. im really hoping to get a package deal out of this somewehre
