Good bindings for a GNU Altered Genetics?

Hey, just ordered a new GNU AG on sale and now looking for some bindings to pair with it. Really have no idea what I should be looking for as this is my first board. I ride all mountain, very little time in the park, and I prefer to play around on the mountain a bit (instead of bombing every run). Do you guys have any suggestions that you think would work well with this board? Thanks for any suggestions/opinions

Board side: 155
Boot: 10-10.5

yea 25.1 is that bad?

I've been renting size 10 boots, but think i may be able to go 9.5 considering the boots pack out.

Ended up getting Flow NXT AT-SE's too

well considering your boot size a large binding might overhang from the waist. I know the union force would be bigger than my board 25.5. boss 390 are right on with the width of my board

ah crap, guess i'll find out when the board is delivered on thursday hah. I did get the Large size Flow bindings, but they seem pretty low profile so hopefully they don't overhang *crosses fingers*

If you're an all mountain rider I'd go with something a bit stiffer. Everyone seems to be saying the Flow NXT-AT-SE's are for park but their actually one of the most rigid quick entry. I'd suggest those, or one of Burton's stiffer rigs. Nice board, very similar to a Lib Tech's Banana Magic!

Thanks Slick, yea I did end up getting the Flow NXT AT-SE's (large size) just hoping they fit the width of my board haha. I actually don't mind if they're in the medium stiffness range either, I'm not a very aggressive rider :P

I think you will be ok with that waist width, especially if you ride duck like me because I have a similar situation, but I don't experience any drag at all.
