Searching for a new set.

Looking for a new set of bindings. Right now I have a set of 07-08 ride delta mvmnt's they have been great bindings, but have had one flaw. The ankle straps cuts into the top of my foot and makes it start hurting after awhile. I rode a friends new revolts with the split strap and it completely fixed the problem. But they had another problem. I could feel the base plate under the wedgies rubber. It was rather irritating since I never had the problem with my deltas and their baseplates were super comfy. Prior to that I was thinking about looking into maybe the rodeos but now I think they may have the same flaw. Not sure tho if anybody could let me know that would be great!. I really wish I could just get the new style strap and swap it in mine but the only upgrade ride sells is a different style than I like and the colors would be way off and look funky.
I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions in a new set. Hopefully comparibal to my deltas flex wise and what not but with a better ankle strap. What I've looked at so far are the gnu mutants with the cool concept for the relieve lever for the rear entry's and I always here alot of good about union. Wondering how comfy there ankle straps and stuff are for the top of your foot.
Others suggestions welcome. I'm not a big fan of burton. I really wish I could just go try a bunch of different stuff, but there arnt any real good shops around me in Ohio and the place ride carries pretty much all button stuff and some Solomon but that's about it so I'm always forced to but online.
Thanks for any help.
Henry

Most comfy strraps for me have been Raiden. Or Flow, but that's a whole different binding.

Others that have a good conformable ankle strap are the K2's with the strap on the Nationals. Same thing on the Companys too and you might like those. Harshmellow is money for dampening. Flux makes super comfy ankle straps too, TT30s will be softer than your Selfsame, SF45's might be a bit stiffer in the highback but should have more give in the base. But they might not be cushy enough in the toothed for ya.

The new Rides have TOO much foam in em. They felt dead to me. I thought last years were the best encarnation of the Delta.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Thanks flow have some nice bindings. I've been interested in the quick entry because the biggest places within 5 hours are only like 700 vertical so I'm constantly in and out. just was not sure how I would like my foot constantly tightened down.

Anyone know how comfy the unions are? was checking out the contact/contact pro.
