Dear Fellow Snowhounds!

I've been reading most all of the posts listed on this forum today. Needless to say, I didn't get much work done. I've finally made up my mind to buy a splitboard and now I'm trying to decide which one.

I prefer freeride boards. I have a pair of Northwave boots. I'm 5'10", 165lbs. What's the best length and type of board I should consider. I'm currently riding a 158, but I'm thinking of going to a 161, perhaps 166. I've read some good reviews on the Voile Freeride 166. It seems that the consensus is that Burton's hardware is cumbersome.

Should I buy a Burton, Voile, Prior, or NeverSummer? Who has the best hardware for transitioning easily from skis to board? Which board is the most versatile, meaning rides well in both the backcountry and resort-style riding?

I'm very uneducated in this area. I've been riding backcountry by hiking up the mountain in my snow shoes and riding my old Liquid board. Any advice you all could give me on the best board, length, bindings, boots, etc. etc. would be greatly appreciated!!!
