Default Good boot to pair with Flow Fuse-AT and Skate Banana board

Hello all,
First time on this forum. Been getting into snowboarding and skiiing past few years, and just got more serious about it this season.

Just got a cheap used Skate Banana as I heard its Magnetraction is good for East-Coast packed/icy snow (Poconos here) and more rocker design is nice for not catching on un-even edges while carving.
Thought I'd spurge on a nice binding to make up for what i saved on it. Really liked demoing Flow bindings and how quickly can get into them... so got a pair of Fuse-AT's (think this had the most flex from their higher-end models for a more -All-Mountain feel, guess thats why its called AT. Think the Flow rep recommended this one for generally for a beginner looking for a binding that will last them into novice-hood).

Now based on those 2 things, what boot would you guys pair with it?
Im guessing that the board is more buttery (Im short 5' 3" so got the smallest 145N size as 145-148 is what i usually ride anyway).
The binding is an All-Mountain binding, but im not sure it has a super high flex [in fact their website says it has 4 out of 5 responsiveness, not sure if someone has more experience with its flex].
Would I want a mid-flex boot (any specific recommendations?)?
I'd prefer possibly a BOA system boot vs regular/quick-lace as I kinda liked it when I demoed BOA in Nagano (just got back a month ago from snowboarding as a beginner in Hakuba, man that was intense lol ).
Leaning towards the 'Ride Anthem Boa Coiler' or the Ride ROOK BOA.

Thanks guys!,
Let me know if i made a horrible mistake pairing the Flow with a Skate Banana ,
Ari
