Diode vs Genesis's vs Malavita

Hello everyone,

This season I picked up a new setup: 2016 Rossignol One Magtek and the 2016 Burton Genesis bindings, and I've gone a few times and the ride feels very comfortable but I don't feel like I have as much response as I'd maybe like. I've been looking at comparisons and reviews everywhere, and I'm wondering if I should have maybe went for Malavitas (I had them for my previous board, but in EST so I can't try them) as well as what many recommend right now (Diodes or Genesis X), and was wondering what would maybe be best for my board.

I mainly do all mountain freeriding on the east coast (Mt Creek, Hunter, etc..) and am not doing parks yet but would like to maybe be able to do some basic stuff on them soon.

Am I just overthinking things or are one of the other options better/worth changing for?

Thank you!

Genesis X would be the perfect step up, and still comfortable for hitting the park.

Had the Genesis and the vita's and there isn't much of a difference between the two of them.

Not sure how the Genesis x rides though.
