Yo So ive been riding for 5 years now and its time to update the board, im an all mountain rider 6'1" 155 lbs >>>>Question<<<< is this a decent board for an advanced rider or should i be looking for something different and what size should i be looking for 155 / 158 perhaps and the most important part is will it work with 08 Burton Mission Bindings ?

The board comes with base plates that allow the ICS system to work with any Burton binding. Dogfunk is advertising them as a free gift. Just click the link and you can see the plates. As for your other questions, I don't know anything about the vrocker.

The v-rocker is a design so instead of the original shape of a snowboard, you have a bannana like shape, making it easier for you to get a shorter snowboard for park, but still able to keep your nose above the snow in powder. Im no expert on this, so my advice would be to look it up google. Its a fairly new technology and seems to make an overall better board, but again, im no expert. Its also quite new, so one might want to stick with the perfected style burton has in thier 2010 custom non-vrocker, but thats just an idea. So, look it up, research it, and if it seems like it would suit you for what you want, go for it, if not, stick with the classic.

The Custom has a medium flex that corresponds well with the Mission's flex. Get the Burton Retro Disk (free gift) to use all traditional Burton bindings with EST boards.

If you prefer piste riding, some out of bounds and maybe a mellow three over the big table top I'd go for the 159.

If you like to butter all the flat parts on any slope and jibbing random stuff you find at the edge of the piste, the 156 is your choice.
