Default Perfect bindings for an all jib board?

Hi, i've done a lot of research lately about what bindings to put on my all jib board. It's a Rome Artifact Rocker 2011. I'm an advanced rider but I won't be hucking myself off anything too crazy. From my research, I've found that i'm going to want a flexy pair but I don't know the exact ones that would be the best.
I like the Flow concept but they have so many bad reviews not sure i want to get into that. I heard that the K2 Cinches are better but still not flawless like old school strap style.
I read a few things about Burton's Custom EST's. Money isn't a huge deal but I don't want bindings worth more than the board. Any ideas would help thanks.

You say you're and advanced rider but don't know that EST only fits on Burton ICS? Hmmm

I ride 2 sets of Flows. They're my choice for Jibsticks to be honest. Try M9SE's or for overall softness Quattros.

For 2 strap love my jib picks were Flux DS30s, K2 Nationals, Raiden Zero's, or Salomon Arcades.

Thank you! I guess I don't have the intelligence of a "advanced rider". It's been almost 4 years since i've actually wanted to add on to my snowboard collection and apparently none of that previous knowledge has carried over. I will look into those that you recommended. Do you have any complaints about the Flows? I've ridden them before but I have yet to ride this new board so everything is going to feel different. Thanks again!

No complaints. I only own two strap cause they were free and I like to switch things up. Two straps are better in pow too.

K you just posted a jib binding, and a freeride binding...

Mobs weren't good enough to get my vote. Their ankle strap had too much give, even for a jib binding, it made them a little uncomfortable. K2 Indy's over Mobs for that price point.

I agree on the Indy's I kinda blanked for a second, meant the DS30. I also forgot the Mobs STILL AREN'T IN!

There it is. Yeah DS30's are a good JIB binding. Everyone seems to be expecting them to be a little beffier than TT30's, like they sit between the TT30 and SF45. When to me they sat between the RK30 and TT30. At least that's what I felt having ridden all 5 (including DS45's, they shouldn't have killed that one, one of my favorite bindings).

Why so angry about Mob's if you agree that Indy's are better? Get Indy's??? or Salomon Arcades???

am i the only one who doesnt like a super flexible bindings?

even for a jib stick i really wouldnt want the flexy feel. My bindings broke on the mountain last year and i grabbed some burton freestyles just because their selection was so damn weak and i needed something quick. mannnnn i couldnt stand them.

this year i got a park pickle and threw some GNU Choices on it.

am i alone in this preference?

Anyone ridden a pair of Unions before? I've heard from peers they're pretty decent.
evo.com has 20% off all their outlet stuff and they have a 2011 pair of Flow NXT-AT which you would end up getting for $150 after discount. Just thought id through that out there.
