Default Which of these would you choose

I'm looking for some new bindings for my new board (Rossi Retox 153). I'm 5 10 about 170 lbs. This will be my 3rd year boarding and I bought the board to try and get into the park and improve butters etc. (could slide a wide box and do the smaller jumps last season). I'd like to find a binding thats a good match for the park/butters but also be able to do some groomers/small kickers too, nothing too rough (midwest greens and blues).

I searched around the forum abit and this what I've come up with
(mainly looking at last season gear for the $ savings)

2011 Burton Custom or Mission
2011 Nitro Raiden Zero
2011 K2 Indy or Formula
2011 Rome S90 or 390
Union Flite, Contact, Force

So which one would you buy? Also what size? I have size 10 DC boots and seem to be right between medium and large in most bindings.

For reference I've ridden or owned 09'Ride RX, 10'Ride EX, 10'Burton Mission, 11'Burton Custom EST, 08'Rome 390

Thanks

I'm sort of looking for a simular binding as you and I would say check out the Union Force... They seem to have some solid technology and have a decent price esp last years stuff... size like you said is right on the boarder. You shuld really bring your boots into a shop and test fit them all. If you have foot print reducers or your boots are just a little smaller go with the M/L the smaller your boot binding combo the better fit it will be on any board.

try them.... bring your boots and strap up....
the new formulas i didnt like they went too high i could feel them digging in my calves. buckles came off super easy and they have a hinged ankled strap that puts the strap way out of the way for easy in out. and canting.

the unions buckles were tough to release not as easy off as others. probably canting. their toe strap was also pretty mediocre

My raidens (blackhawks) have the mini disc. and are super easy off on. no hinge. canting.

Thanks for the advice guys.. i was looking pretty hard at those nitro zero's but have never seen them in person and no shops close by carry them. Hows the quality,durability, ratchets & straps? Does the mini disc work well, seems like it wouldnt be a very secure with just 2 screws?? Are there multiple holes in the mini disc to mount it more towards one edge of the board?
I know alot of you guys have experience with alot of these bindings so keep it coming, i appreciate it. Nivek or BA feel free to throw your 2 cents in, i know you guys have ridden many of these
