Bindings for my Smokin Team Series

So i picked up a 148 Smokin Team Series

http://www.freestyle.pl/artykuly/id,...Pro-Model.html

Wondering what bindings I should get for it now. I won't get to demo any of these or ride this board until next season so recommendations on what you think would go well on this softer park oriented board are welcome.

I was thinking
Burton Malavita
Raiden Zero
Union Contact Pro
Raiden Phantom
Hold out for 2012/2013 bindings

Opinions?

I'd look at K2 Nationals or Indys, Burton Cartels, and whatever Rome offers in a freestyle binding.

Thanks for all the responses, for the Romes would that be like a 390 Boss?
How are they?

More opinions welcome! (Would now be the best time to pick up bindings or will the deals get better?)

Union Atlas or the Contact Pro. Depending on whether you like a tight or loose feel.

Phantoms. Hands down one of the best bindings I've ever been in. NOTHING beats airbag dampening.

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

Explain airbag dampening? Sounds interesting.

There's an airbag in the binding.

I got the 390 Boss on my Team Series and it's a good set up. Bindings are soft, very adjustable (I went with canting 2) and best of all they're the most comfortable pair of bindings I've ridden.
