Opinions on my setup for this season

I bought some new equipment for the season, but I wanted to get some opinions on it before I actually used it.

Board: Forum LRG Special Edition 08
Bindings: Rome Targa 08

I bought the board off of WhiskeyMilitia for around $240, and it's supposedly based off of Forum Grudge. I haven't heard much talk about the LRG or Grudge, but I remember reading one or two good reviews about the Grudge. I can easily return the board, but I figured I'd buy it first since it was a good deal.

As for bindings, I'm actually debating between Rome Targa, Rome 390, and Burton Missions. I do mostly all mountain boarding, but would like to get into the parks more. I usually board in Utah or Tahoe, if that matters. By the way what size bindings should I get? I usually wear size 10 boots.

Thanks!

I don't know too much about that board but the targas are a great choice. They are what I use. If you plan to be in the park more than anything else, then go with the 390's. You will need l/xl bindings.

Do you think I'll be squeeze into S/M bindings? I'm having the hardest time finding Targas, or any bindings for that matter in L/XL without paying full retail.

You should be able to fit into a medium binding no problem.

go to a store and see if your boots fit in them, then see if they have last years model, if they don't, order online.
