Default Good moderately priced binding?

Looking for a suggestion on a good set of bindings from this list. They are all around the same price. I'm into freeriding and the board will be stiff, my boots are k2 darko boa condas.

2010 forum fraction
2010 k2 indy
2010 ride ex
2009 k2 auto/indy
2009 raiden blackhawk/strike/zero
2009 ride delta/rx
2009 rome united
2009 saloman arnie 501

Also, was wondering if anyone is familiar with the autos, and was wondering where the toe strap goes when your out of the binding? The reason i'm asking is cause I don't really want to get a stomp pad, and with normal bindings i just put my foot in the bed strapless when delifting, or strap in on the lift if its really sketchy.

Do not get the Rome Uniteds... I had this years and they had to recall all of them due to "Safety" regulations. I found this out after the binding cracked in several places during a trip...

Ride EX is one of the best bang for the buck bindings out this year. Lots of trickle down tech from last year's high end models. Gel toecaps, wedgie footbeds, aluminum base, can't go wrong for the price

Yeah, I was talking to someone that's associated with Ride and they mentioned that even a few team members use the EX's even though they have the choice of using the high end models. I have the 2010 RX's and love them.

I've got '09 RX's and they've been great so far.

As a guy who rode Ride SPi's for two years and now rides Flux Titans, I'd recommend the Titans over anything Ride makes. The Rides are very responsive, but have a lot of chatter du to the metal baseplate. The Titans are much mre comfortable with a lot less chatter. Plus, ride those Rides hard enogh and you'll eventually warp the baseplate and when you do Ride will probably tell you to go fuck yourself like they did me.
