Next Bindings for New Board

I am looking to buy a 2014 Park Pickle, but im still a little confused as to which bindings to get. The two front runners are the NX2-SE Flow bindings, and then the Burton Genesis EST bindings. Both are 2014 models and have pretty solid sales right now. Im open to other suggestions as well. Thanks!

Board size: 156-158
boot size: 9
Binding size: M

Flux TT or Now IPO. You can get the TT for a shade over $100 right now and they're fantastic. IPO if you want a more skatey feel.

If you are going to get the gnu park pickle then the EST bindings will not work with your board. YOu will need to get the reflex version.

Doubt I'll ever buy another binding not made by Flux or Now. A lot would have to change. I've ridden a shit ton of brands and those two definitely stand out. Next up would be Burton. Not a fan of big B, but they do make a good binding. I have an old pair of Triads and don't have anything bad to say about them.

So what I'm getting here are the Now IPO 2014's are the way to go?? Seems like that's what everone is suggesting. I also do alot of free riding in powder, and trees, as well as groomed trails. I'm new to snowboarding, so would the iPo's still be my best bet?? I would say I do 60% Park, 40% free riding.
