Good Bindings to pair up with a GNU Riders Choice

So I recently picked up a "10-11" GNU Riders Choice and am looking for a good set of bindings to match with the board. (I have little understanding of how Bindings compliment a board).

I am looking for a reasonably light weight binding with Canting.

I have a set of 2011 Forum Republics, Would these be a good match for the board? (Or should I keep these on my Artifact and look for something else.)

I'd like two sets of bindings so I can avoid swapping bindings over mid day If I want to switch boards.

Thanks Guys

rome 390 boss is a decent choice. on sale here

Snowboard Bindings On Sale from Rome, Raiden and Burton

you generally just want to match the stiffness of the bindings to the board. mid stiff bindings for mid stiff board.

ride bindings would also suit you. capos, rodeos, or revolt.

k2 also has canted footbeds.

I've been seeing reports that the rome bindings aren't up to par this year, could be individual but who knows.

Would the Republics I have pair up well with the Riders Choice?? If so I would look for another binding for my Artifact.

Seems like a lot of you have the same view suggesting the K2 Formulas, As for the "Autos" Cool Technology but I like to keep things simple. In my head, more moving parts = greater possibility of something breaking and cutting a day short.

**Any other views on the Formulas positive or negative before I pull the trigger on a set?

Also any views on this question -

those forums would work fine for that board, but there are nicer bindings out there for the job i think. forums generally are aimed at more freestyle. k2 autos don't really have more moving parts, it's actually a really simple device. there's a wire that goes from the ankle strap, through the base, to the toe strap. i've never used them though, so i can't say how well they work, but i've heard good things. k2 formulas would be a good choice though. if you happen to want some red ones, size xl, look here, nice sale

Yes, I'm aware of how they work, upon researching I ran across some threads/reviews in which "the cable" had snapped. I know this was a huge problem years ago, I believe K2 even had a recall. Although they probably resolved the problem with a beefier cable, I think I would still go with the "basic" formula to alleviate any potential issue.

You also mention better bindings for the job, what suggestions do you have?

thanks
