Default Bindings to go with a new freestyle deck?

I'm getting a new deck this winter, probably a 155 NeverSummer SL-R or something similar, and I have no idea what kind of bindings to put on this babe. I like to do it all, powder, trees, steeps, but I'm going to try and focus on building my park skills this year, so as with the board I need something thats kinda park oriented but not park-only. I use some older Burton Customs on my current board, and there nice but I have never really tried anything else. So unfortunetly I wouldn't know any differences. Any suggestion would be awesome, oh and I wouldn't mind staying under $150. Thanks

My recommendation - Flux Titans
Others to consider - Rome 390s, Union Forces, Burton Cartels

Lot of other good bindings out there, but those are the ones I'd start with.

I have all the bindings mentioned but I'd go with the Rome Targa for the SL-R, it's a bit stiffer than the 390's. Cartels are just uncomfortable if you're on them for a prolonged time.

I got my 390 Slashers in the mail today, and WOW they are sooooooo cool looking. Graphics and design are pimp, and they have alott of padding, yet still weigh nothing and aren't bulky. Clicking mechanism and setting them up is a snap as well, very happy with my purchase. I can't believe I have to wait another 6 months to try them out
