I currently have a Ride Control cambered 151 board, but I'm thinking of upgrading to the Arbor Element RX now that I've gotten better and heard great things about this board with rocker. I'm 5'6" 142-145lb (though I'm hoping to get down to 137lbs again!). Which size should I get? And it looks like the bottom comes in white font on black background, or black font on white background. I want the latter, but it does not look like I can choose. Anyway to request what I want if I choose to order from Back Country?

Thx, Lyman! I think I will go with your suggestion on getting EST bindings. But now I have to figure out which EST bindings to get! Any suggestions? If cost is not too much of an issue, would you recommend the Mission EST, Cartel EST, C02 EST, Malavita EST, or C60 EST? For that matter, some of them have "Restricted" versions, which I'm not really sure what the difference is.

I'm still a beginner-intermediate, but hope to advance well enough to justify buying the new bindings and board. I'm not likely to go to the park and rather have control and such over the need for speed or tricks.

I just bought this for use on a board with the traditional 4x4 holes. But I'm a bit confused about the user manual.I understand the 3D Disc is for the 3D system, the 4x4 Disc is for the traditional 4x4 holes, but what about the Re:Flex?

On top of that, I'm a bit confused about mounting with The Channel section. It shoes a pic of the binds withe the side mounts for the ICS. But the Burton Prophecy does not have this (I assume this manual must be generic then). Then it shoes a pic with the 4x4 base plate and the Re:Flex base plate for mounting on The Channel.

The reason why I'm asking about the ICS is that I'm thinking of upgrading to a future Burton Custom Flying V snowboard. So how would I mount the Burton Prophecy to it. Would I wear down the bolts if I continuously swap the binding between two boards (for that matter, where would I buy more Burton bolts with the plastic nylock?).

Or is it best to just buy Burton EST bindings?

Sorry for all these questions. I'm still a newbie wh

Can anyone comment if the sensor mirror with 70% VLT good enough for night-time snowboarding? Or do I need to get a clear lens for the I/O with 84% VLT? Granted there will be lights throughout the slopes for night-time skiing/snowboarding and I may not be do much night-time riding, so trying to figure out if there's enough justification to spend the extra cash on clear lens, or if the sensor mirror lens are safe enough for night-time use. Thx in advance!
