Default K2 vs. Flux bindings

So I have a Capita Green machine 156 and I'm trying to decide which bindings to get. I really just want bindings that will be for bombing slopes and carving, yet I can go to the park and theyll be very responsive and good. I've done a lot of research but I can't decide. Right now I'm deciding between:
•K2 Hurrithanes
•K2 National
•Flux tt30 or
•Flux rk30

Any advice??

Also I'm 5"11 and wear a size 10.5 boot.

On the GM, probably Nationals. I think all but the Hurrithanes are a good choice for that deck though. I think you'll find yourself wanting more binding than hurrithanes on the GM.

So you like the auto system? It's really secure and nicer than the two crank system?

Oh you think so? Have you tried the Nationals out? They look pretty nice, I just don't know how well the auto system works.

the auto system works really good once you figure out what you need to do. its easy in and out if you figure out how to move your feet. it holds really tight or really loose and everywhere in between, however you want to ride them.

Be prepared to play with the Auto stap to get it to fit right if you don't go to a shop that knows them well. I have experience with it and can set it up at a Demo in a minute, but they take some practice to get right quickly. They work, they give a little play, maybe 2-3mm, between the toestrap and heelstrap giving with the floating cable deal. K2 straps don't agree with my feet, but don't take that for anything as I've met noone yet that has the same problem as me. I have very odd obnoxious feet.

Auto's are good, and the Nationals have harshmellow which is possibly the greatest invention for snowboarding for your knees in recent history (I prefer Raiden airbags, they're a little bit less damp but more "energetic" if that makes sense. From Raiden you'd like the Zero's).

I think K2 ratchets are the best on the market.

It sounds really nice and my local ski/ snowboard shop is getting some in next week so I think I'll go and check them out and see how I like 'em.

Yeah I'm leaning more towards the nationals at this point. The auto sounds like it works really well, it just needs to be adjusted right and I like the harshmellow fersure. The canter footbed is a plus also.

Oh the raiden zeros actually look like a nice alternative also.
My local ski shop really was trying to convince me to get flux's though, I think the nationals would better suit my needs though.

The straps not fitting me right are the only thing on K2's that keep me from them. I don't recommend them enough.
