If you don't do park then why the hell did you get a skate banana? Don't just jump on whatever board has the best hype train.
Unions aren't necessarily the best bindings just because they have the most hype at the moment. Do you want park bindings because you have a park board and don't want to overpower it, or all mountain bindings because you ride all mountain?

not to talk trash but the skate banana is too loud with the color scheme, I do like the all yellow/lime topsheet but hate the rest of them. Please dont freeride with that banana I can hear that scrappie ass sound from a mile away. Keep it in the park

If you want the magnetraction get the Lib tech TRS or even any GNU BTX magnetraction. Skate banana is more for park, when i see one riding on groomers it looks like it gets too bouncy on groomers and ice

I'm riding RK30's right now and I really love them. I definitely recommend the whole Flux brand, but if you say you don't do too much park the TT30's might be a better match.
