Which bindings to pair with Arbor Westmark?

I am getting a westmark and have size 9 feet. I have narrowed it down to the Rome 390 Bosses, Raiden Phantoms, K2 National and Flux TT30's and I am about 160 lbs and plan to ride all around park and take the occasional jaunt to tear up the rest of the mountain.
Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks.

The Phantoms are probably your best bet out of the bunch.

I have a pair of 2011 Forces on mine which I really enjoy. I rode the phantoms on a friends board earlier in the year and they are sick. I will probably buy a pair next year unless flow fixes all of the problems with their new lineup.

I rode Malavita Restricted and RK30's on mine and liked them both. Those are all good choices. It will come down to ergos for your boot, price and quality. I think Phantoms would be good out of the bunch. I liked the urethane highback of the RK30's and would think the Nationals might feel similar.

Phantoms hands down. Unless you like a bit more play then get Zeros or TT30's.

Snowboarding Is...

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

I have been riding the 2012 Phantoms this season and they friggin' rock! I rode the 390s and wasn't as impressed with quality/features. The only thing they have over the Phantoms that's worth mentioning is they have canted footbeds, which wasn't enough to sway me even with my deteriorating knees.
