Please help with a new set up...

Im debating on Burton Bullet, Elite and Love or a ROME Cheap Trick or Crail. Im 6'0, 190, size 11 boot, ridding style is mainly all mountain riding a little bit of park. This will be my second season, im ready for my own board. I have burton customs and burton freestyle boots. DO i really need a wide board? I also saw last year Burton Custom in my price range...about $250 max. Any Suggestions???

You should be fine with a regular width board. I wear size 12 Ions on a Custom X and I am fine. Just watch your toe/heel overhang when you're setting up the stance and you should be good.

yea, depending on your angles, you may not need a wide. even with low angles, you'd be fine with a midwide at most.

With regards to your boards...I don't think you need the bullet (wide), and the Love's a park/jib board....so...not really the type of riding you're looking to do.
Not familiar with the rest.

I would take the Rome Manual over the bullet for a wide all mountain board in that price range.

Just try and find last years model. There are a lot of Burton customs around from last year at like 50% off. You could maybe even go for a midwide instead of getting a wide, but a normal width might work too.
