Burton Ambush boots... restricted to Burton bindings?

I just bought a pair of Burton Ambush boots in an attempt to lighten my board weight and improve my ollies/spins and general 'flickability'

But when i went to look at bindings, but the shops i went to all said the same thing: "Burton Ambush? you better stick with burton bindings". They all seemed to suggest Burton Missions or Cartel bindings. They arent exactly heavy, but not the lightest either.

Would there be any problems if i went to another binding? Others i looked at were:
Ride EX
K2 Formula (they look/feel cheap though), or possibly Hurrithane
Union FLite
(all of which felt lighter than the burton bindings)

Does anyone have any other suggestions for lightweight mid-soft flex bindings? Burton Diode and Flux DMCC Lights are somewhat out of my budget for now (trying to keep it under/around $200ish)

I am 155lb, 5'8", riding a 155cm K2 Parkstar (2012) with mainly presses, spins and some freestyle boarding in mind
