Default Good Setup for an intermediate all-mountain freestyle rider?

Im gonna get the 09 Burton Twin 154cm off of sierrasnowboards for their insanely low prices but i am undecided about the bindings. I've heard good and bad things about the Burton Missions and I am considering getting them but I dont want bindings that will be breaking on me after a couple outings. Can someone recomend a good pair of bindings for me, I'm 5'11 155 lbs with a size 11 boot. I'd also like to hear some feedback about the Burton Twin too thanks.

the burton twin is a good freestyle park board. its nothing special but for a good price id say go for it. its pretty soft too just so you know
and bindings i use union forces basically because theyre super durable and they do everything.
i dont like burton bindings, but if i had to recommend one id say burton cartel.

if ur a burton fan then dont get any binding model thats below the cartels IMO. Twin is alright but i would suggest the custom. It would be a better choice if the money isnt the issue, or u could even get last yrs model for half the price probably. Custom is good for just messing around as well as cruising. Do lots of research before ur buy

umm, anyboard really thats over 300 bucks you will really enjoy. for that qualaty of a board, you could find burton selling the same thing for 100 dollars more, so try to stay away from them even if it has EST/ICS because thats for queers. even though the cantbeds are sick...but those are different. Bindings will be Burton cartells, triads, p1.1's (the only good ones) other then those, go for upper rome or Union Bindings, they have some sick models out there. Ride Contrabands are fucking shit, few people in my riding group had some and they allways had problems with that toe strap. Learning to jib with those things were a pain in the ass for them becuase their pretty much standing at your level in the snow world. Im Riding burton p1.1's and a skate bannana this season only because they are made for my kind of park and all mountain riding. But those are a lot priceyer than the majority of things on the mountain

if i were u then i wouldnt suggest getting a wide board. ur only 155 lbs dripping wet and ur boot is 11. i wear a 10.5 or 11 i think and i ride on a standard board. the board might be too bulky for u to maneuver especially for ur weight. when u install ur bindings, insert the boot into them tilt the board like 30 degrees on each edge and make sure ur not getting any toe and heal drag.
usually the heal part of boots taper up so u can even set your bindings a little back more towards the heal edge to give you more clearance in the front.

*but if ur used to wide boards then hey....to each his own*
