No park, no tricks, no switch. 95% of my riding is in Washington state/Whistler, so heavy, chunky snow most of the time.

Sounds like I'm going to need a moderate to stiff flexing binding. I handled some in the shop and can really see what people mean about the Union toe strap not being as "smooth" as the others.

It seems like decent options would be:
Burton Cartels
Burton Malavitas
Burton Genesis
Rome Targa
Ride Capo
Flux SF45

Thoughts? Advice?
Cartel or Targas (only two bindings on your list I've had experience with). My 390's, while a fun solid binding, were a little too soft for pure freeriding.
