Default Youth bindings or small Adult bindings

Bought a new Never Summer evo Mini 130 for my son (hiding it till the holidays).
He is a park rat. Loves rails and boxes, beginning to do jumps as well.
He current board (superhero 130) has Ride Phenom Bindings. He likes them alot.
Trying to decide if i should get him another pair of the same bindings, or try to upgrade to a better adult binding, as he is really progressing in his riding.
For 10 Y.O. he has flippers. He has a size 7 boot, which would put him in small/medium adult bindings.

Suggestions?

I would upgrade, better quality and more adjustability, IMO.

If Upgrade ,
any recommendations as to a good binding.
I love my flows, but my son likes the traditional binding style, he is 60/40 park, free ride

I tried Flows with the kids and spent more time getting them into the binding than with traditional straps...definitely love/hate with those things. With the adult binding there is plenty of info and opinion here....Flux/Rome/Burton/Union to name a few. For my girls, I'm using the low/mid-level bindings from Burton because I got pretty good deals on them.

From burton consider a used pair of customs or missions, softer bindings will compensate for his light weight.

It he's a size seven now he'll soon need a men's medium.

Size 7 is about where I've decided to start targeting the swap to adult stuff. I've got a few years until I have to worry about that though. And he'll be 10 this year with me hoping he's ok in the size 4 boots I grabbed him for his bday in Dec.
