Default Getting Fastplant 2012. What bindings?

I do everything the fastplant is good for. I ride the entire mountain then i spend a few more hours in the park and a bit of back country with the friends. I know the K2 Nationals are made to be perfect with them but I want to know what other options i should consider!!

I'm looking for really well educated answers!

merry snowboarding and happy christmas!

Meh if you're riding the whole mountain on it I would go for Raiden Phantom's, Salomon Chiefs, K2 Company's, Flux SF45's, or Burton Malavita's.

Flux are pretty average for most there models on weight. Company's have a normal highback, Nationals have urethane.

The Flux DMCC light is good for all mountain shredding. Super lightweight too

The urethane is good and soft binding for hitting the park. It moves with you side to side but stays responsive front to back when making turns. Urethane is a different feel that what you might be used to. IT is capable of hitting the whole mountain but if you were looking for a little stiffer binding, the DMCC light is a good choice.

Its doesnt provide any off axis support. Straight back you have enoguh there, but when youre trying to push through chop or get gnar anywhere else they don't provide enough dynamic support.

I've ridden DS45's, Hurrithanes, Nationals, and RK30's. If you want all mountain performance you sacrifice too much with Urethane. The softest highbacks that work for all mountain for me have been the ones on the TT30, Raiden Zero, Salomon Arcade, and Flow M9se.
