Question Need Help Selecting Some New Bindings

Current Setup:
  • Ride Fleetwood 161 (wide)
  • Vans BFB Size 11
  • Ride LX bindings (XL)

My binding toestraps are coming undone after about 20 days or so of snowboarding. I've advanced pretty quick in those 20 days, I can do blacks fine, go through trees fine, I can now jump no problem, no problem in powder, and get down the hill switchfoot, not gracefully, but what I'm trying to say is I'm ready for the next level.

I think the Ride LX just weren't ever configured right as the toe strap needed adjustment but I couldn't get it any tighter because it lacked adjustment on one side. My boots are size 11, but are a bit wider of a boot, hence why the CSR sized my binding as an XL

I am typically and all-mountain freeride rider, but like jumps and tricks, but don't spend much (if any) time in the park. Hence why I have a powder board. I am 5'11" and about 190lb.

I'm currently looking at everything from 2009 Ride EX/RX or Flow NXT-AT's but open to other brands, I just don't know much about them. I want something in the middle of the road, not too stiff, not too soft.

Looking at:
  • Forum Republic
  • Ride EX
  • Ride RX
  • Flow NXT-AT
  • Union Force

What are your gear recommendations?

Thanks, sorry for so many words.
