Cool Light, cheap, freestyle bindings?

Hey there I just joined the forum. I need advice on some new bindings to ride because I have only ridden my burton customs and have no idea what some of these other bindings are like. I ride a Rome Artifact and I absolutely love it. It is super flexy and light, so i need a pair of light bindings to go with it, that are better than burton customs. I ride a ton of park, mainly jumps. Here are some of the bindings I'm looking at:

Flux RK30
Union Force
Union Contact
Rome Mob
Rome 390 or 390 Boss
K2 Hurrithane
K2 Formula

Does anyone know which of these is the lightest? I'm leaning away from the rome 390 boss b/c of all the strap problems I'm hearing about, same with the force.

Thank a ton!
-Sam

Only ones I can speak for on here are the forces and the contacts. The forces are heavy as hell but the contacts are really lightweight.

Union FLites. They really are fucking light. I've heard good things about the Contacts though, as well as the 390's and the Flux.

A guy I regularly shred with has the Hurrithanes, he likes them more than the Unions, hands down.
