Good boot to pair with Flow Fuse-AT and Skate Banana board
First time on this forum. Been getting into snowboarding and skiiing past few years, and just got more serious about it this season.
Just got a cheap used Skate Banana as I heard its Magnetraction is good for East-Coast packed/icy snow (Poconos here) and more rocker design is nice for not catching on un-even edges while carving.
Thought I'd spurge on a nice binding to make up for what i saved on it. Really liked demoing Flow bindings and how quickly can get into them... so got a pair of Fuse-AT's (think this had the most flex from their higher-end models for a more -All-Mountain feel, guess thats why its called AT. Think the Flow rep recommended this one for generally for a beginner looking for a binding that will last them into novice-hood).
Now based on those 2 things, what boot would you guys pair with it?
Im guessing that the board is more buttery (Im short 5' 3" so got the smallest 145N size as 145-148 is what i usually ride anyway).
The binding is an All-Mountain binding, but im not sure it has a super high flex [in fact their website says it has 4 out of 5 responsiveness, not sure if someone has more experience with its flex].
Would I want a mid-flex boot (any specific recommendations?)?
I'd prefer possibly a BOA system boot vs regular/quick-lace as I kinda liked it when I demoed BOA in Nagano (just got back a month ago from snowboarding as a beginner in Hakuba, man that was intense lol ).
Leaning towards the 'Ride Anthem Boa Coiler' or the Ride ROOK BOA.
Let me know if i made a horrible mistake pairing the Flow with a Skate Banana ,
