You're out of the weight range for the 154cm Burton Blunt Snowboard. It would be a good idea to move up to the 157cm size.
The Blunt is really a good entry to intermediate board to cruise the mountain and develop some skills on. This board does use the unique Channel Mounting System, and you will need to make sure your bindings say: "Channel Compatible." The Burton freestyle bindings you were looking at will be compatible. Hope this helps!
Hope this helps!
Burton lists their flex a tad different. They list this Blunt between 'soft and playful', and 'the happy medium.' Translated... that is is like a 3 or 4 flex.
It depends on the year and version of the binding. Most Custom Re:Flex bindings do seem that they are compatible to the Channel System of the Blunt. On the other hand... the Custom EST bindings are made specifically for the channel: http://www.the-house.com/bt1cue02bk13zz-burton-snowboard-bindings.html
There are a couple of Mission bindings.... some will be compatible, and some will not. This Burton Blunt uses the Channel Mounting System, and your bindings will need to work with that. Example:
http://www.the-house.com/bt1msec02lm11zz-burton-snowboard-bindings.html. Though personal preference and snowboarding style are the majority of length decision.... Burton suggests that a 154 or 157 would be great.
This Blunt snowboard uses Burton's Channel Mounting System, and will not be compatible with your bindings. Your Cartel Bindings will be compatible to the Burton 4x4 and 3D systems.
Forum claims that their Faction binding is compatible the Channel System used on the Blunt. You are good to go.
Your boyfriend will need something 159-163cm.
If you had to choose between the 150cm and 154cm Burton Blunt Snowboard I'd recommend the 150cm size because you fit within the indented weight range. You might want to consider moving up to the 157cm size as well...
Burton Blunt Snowboard's weight ranges:
150cm: 115-155 lbs.
154cm: 130-170cm lbs.
157cm: 135-175 lbs.
You can use regular Burton Mission Snowboard Bindings if they have the Channel System compatible Re:Flex discs. CHeck out all of the Channel System compatible snowboard bindings out HERE: http://www.the-house.com/est-bindings.html
Check out the Burton Mission EST Snowboard Bindings out HERE: http://www.the-house.com/bt1mise04st14zz-burton-snowboard-bindings.html
Both boards are great for the park. The 2012/2013 Burton Whammy Bar has more features that are freestyle specific. You can't go wrong with either board.
