Hey Everyone - Am new to the forum as well; had an old set-up for the longest time and finally figured it was time to update my board/bindings. Haven't really been following all the developments in the gear world, but have read a ton these couple of weeks (found this forum to be incredibly helpful and awesome).
Would love to hear any comments/suggestions on the below setup? Especially interested if anyone has experience mixing and matching board/bindings/boots from different manufacturers or experience with Yes and/or Flux.
5' 11", 165lbs, US9.0
Preferred Riding Style:
All mtn. freeride, powder, backcountry, trees/glades, jumps
Japan (Niseko, Hakuba), Canada (Whistler, Tremblant, local mountains), US (Tahoe, Jackson Hole) - I now live where there's no snow so need to rely on regular boarding trips abroad!
2014 Yes Pick Your Line 161cm (can also consider 2013 but think they're getting to be hard to find)
2014 Flux DM (also can consider Flux SF, but thought DM matches better with the red lol)
2013 Burton Ions (own these already)
- I currently have 2012 Burton Restricted Cartels, though I'm not a big fan of the color and think for freeride maybe the asym strap isn't needed; therefore thinking I'd sell them for a new pair of bindings.
- Thought about the 2012 Yes Pick Your Line board (available for $300 on the Clymb), but think the 2014 version may be worth the extra price?
- One thing about the 2014 Yes PYL: Anyone know why they put the "Yes" logo right where the binding mount is? Just seems like the art on the board won't make much sense after the bindings are attached - maybe it's just me...
Looking forward to hearing from you guys!
