Default Freeride binding choice

Hi folks,

I'm looking for some reviews on a few freeride-esque bindings.

Union Charger
These remind me a lot of the old C02s or similar bindings. My hope is that they are stiff ultra responsive bindings. However, I can't find any reviews on them.

Now IPO
Obviously with Jones and Walsh riding these they gained some credibility. Especially coming from Jones. However, I'm not sure I can buy into the new tech.

Burton Genesis
These seem to have won a lot of awards this year. However, I've seen conflicting statements in regards to their response level. Some say they are super soft and buttery and ollies are harder. Others say they are awesome and provide a simliar skate-like feel to the Now IPO.

Burton Diode
These are only on the list because it is the stiffest binding burton makes. However, I've heard lots of durability problems.

Flux DMCC
I've heard only good things about the DMCC but I personally know not a soul who rides Flux.

Any other options or opinions?

Thanks!
~ BP
