|baxter||I'm so glad I read this thread. I was looking at a Palmer (It was pretty! I'm sorry! I like pretty things!) Then reason took over (and I read this.) I won't buy this one, I've looked around a little since, and I've heard the same resounding answer, "This company is crap." Maybe there is a reason it was only $110.......|

|BurtonAvenger||Palmers are great if you want to buy some of the biggest pieces of shit with a brand name on them.|

|acs72727||Word. They didn't have any recons in my size, except a midwide 153. But, on the phone the guy really recommended the Palmer P Line. Is that a good board.|

|ShredCopper||I got the recon last season and it was also my first board. It was very easy to learn on and I would recommend it for somebody who wants to get the feel for the whole mountain. I have heard nothing but great things about the 390's Im actualy buying a pair for myself this year and if you wear a 9 boot then you could get the mediums I think. A good rule of thumb is you really "get what you pay for." Oh yea and if I was you I would get a board around the 153-155 range. I am 5'11 155 and I had the 156 recon.|

First Board, please help
Hey watap guys. Ive been doing some research and want to get my first board. Im pretty hard skater on banana boards and enjoy freeriding/freestyle boarding although I've just started picking it up. Im 5'10, 145 pound dude. Size 10 shoe, probably 9 snowboard shoe.
After research I've come up with possibly getting a Forum Recon board and Rome 390 bindings.
Is this a good setup? If I get size 9 boots what size bindings should I get? Also, I've found that i should get a board in the 145-155 cm length, but I do like my skateboards small, is this relevant in my snowboard?
Thanks for any advice
