Default Looking to Purchase a board / bindings

Hi there.

I've been snowboarding for just over 2 years now and when I first started I bought a cheap little set up from Play it again sports that cost me $220 for the board boots and bindings.

After progressing I'm sure i've outgrown my gear and need help looking for new stuff.

here's what i'm looking for

-advice on what board to buy
--I need a board that can handle the mountains and is still flexible to ride in the park because i never know where i'll be riding on any given day.

-advice on what bindings to buy
--I want good bindings that will hold me down tight when i want but that i can loosen up when i'm just chillin' out.

For both of these. price is not an issue. I want the best gear I can get with 1 exception. I don't want anything made by Burton.

Just a heads up from someone who's been in snowboarding for 8 or so years, which really isnt that much, but enough to know that company prejudice is usually pointless. I tell people all the time, "Hate gear, not companies". I'm not saying you don't have a good reason for hating Burton, its just most people hate them cause it makes them sound "core", which is dumb.

Anyway, to answer your question, with your stipulation:
Boards:
Neversummer SL-R
Bataleon Riot
K2 Jibpan
Capita Stairmaster Extreme
K2 Believer


Bindings:
Rome 390's
Union Forces
K2 Formulas
Ride Beta MVMNTs

Everything is in order of my preference. If you have any other questions, just ask.

Yea I understand hating on a company isn't good and believe me I'm not. It's just my last board was a Burton and my friend went through the trouble of buying entirely burton gear, binding board boots jacket hat pants shirts everything... I wanna be different. I was looking for something either Ride K2 Flow or some other company I don't know of yet.

Also to add to the all-mountain boards:

Ride DH
Rome Agent

All aforementioned bindings are good.

Boards:
Rome Agent
Rome Graft

Bindings:
rome 390s

I recommend rome because its the only company I know of that makes amazing park boards and that can do all mountain. You can try lib tech for boards as well just do some research on the site they make boards for everything. The rome 390s are amazing bindings and I highly recommend them.

Remember, the OP wants a board that is mainly for all mountain but can still slay the park. The DH and the Graft would be more for someone who wants a park board that they can take to the mountain. I would throw in the Rome Agent though, good call on that. If you really want to be different, the three you will see the least on the the mountain, in order of most scarce to least scarce would be: Bataleon Riot, Stairmaster Extreme, Neversummer SL-R.
