Default Bindings for NS Raptor X 169

Searching for a set of bindings for my new Raptor X 169. Any thoughts on this ?

I tried a number of bindings with my X 169 last year. Bindings seem to make a big performance difference with this board. My top recommendations...

Flux sf45: great leverage and board control with these. Probably the best carving binding I tried but was a little heavy and lacked some footbed padding. Really good at engaging the camber zones.

Burton Co2, C60, Diode: Light, very comfortable, good padding. A good match for the raptor with the best overall comfort and board feel. Lacks some toe side leverage. The best binding for jumping I tried (get the reflex baseplate).

Ride SPI (or current model, El hefe?): I just picked these up a few weeks ago so I haven't tried them. I'm speculatling these will be good as well and right inbetween the above two. Stiff, relatively light, adjustable stiffness, and a nicely padded, canted footbed.

Whatever you choose I would get something that is fairly responsive. Something that has good side to side leverage and something that can really engage the camber zones.

I got a Ride CAD last year. That are not present in a line up, but they're 10/10, even stiffer then Spi, Double Agent or El hefe. That'd be a best choice IMO.
Plus that canting option definately rocks. Super solid and stiff binders.

I went with GNU MUTANTS. Not really sure how wide my stance should be on this board though (haven't ridden it yet)
