Broke my bindings, need new ones

I bought Forum Shakas and they were pretty good, maybe a tad stiff/heavy, but then they broke. Now I need new bindings. I'm thinking of getting anything in the Union, Gnu or Rome lines.
Contact Pros and Forces have caught my attention the most.

Right now I'm on a 153w skate banana. I spend all my time in the park, mainly jibbing. I also like hitting mid to large sized kickers, nothing crazy. Basic grabs and spins.

Which bindings should I get? Also, where can I get them this late in the year? I always buy from dogfunk.com or backcountry.com because of their unlimited return policy, but they are both sold out of most unions in my size L/XL. My local shop doesn't have much left in stock.
Thanks

If you like park i'd also take a look at the k2 hurrithanes. They're really flexible and have canted footbeds too, which is really nice.

I used to own a pair of 390's and they were a little too stiff. I'm looking to switch it up
