Default Bindings for a Proto CT and Nike Kaiju setup?

I just bought a 2012 NS Proto CT and Nike Kaiju boots to go along with it--now I need some bindings to complete the new setup. I'm looking for suggestions since I don't know too much about bindings. The Proto is a 152cm and the Kaiju's are size 8.5. A friend of mine suggested Flow quick release bindings. I've heard that the Rome 390's are good bindings too. I'd consider myself an expert if that helps.

Any advice would be grateful!

I like my cartels on my proto. 390's look sweet too or malativas.

I like to do quite a bit of freeride type stuff so the cartel has a good solid feel while still being playful enough when I want to freestyle the mountain.

If I was doing more park I'd be on a different binding.

I definitely do more freestyle and tree runs than park.

Candle wax? jk dude get some WTFLUX binds. haha all jokes aside ive bought 2 pairs of cartels and thought they were the Biz until I got these Flux Rk30's The highback is way shorter and the bind it self feels just way lighter. its just as comfy and as the cartel not to mention the more responsive. the front strap has fit better on 3 diffrent boots and my cartels I always had to re adjust. Im selling my cartels because Id rather remount my flux binds every time I switch boards then riding those cartels. I rock these on my EVO and Heritage and they feel the same everytime. trust bro these binds are better then most crap out there.

I get check out the Flux TT30 bindings at my local BC Surf & Sport and I definitely liked those better than the Cartels. I did see the RK30's but didn't check them out too much. I'm not a fan of the toe straps that go over the front of your toes instead of on top like the Cartels. Never really tried them though.

Well being that flux is the originator of the Toe Cap strap you should try it on the new bindings you just bought. LOL- Toe cap IMO is the biz, keeps your heel in the back of the cup better.

I haven't bought any yet. I'll probably wait until the Sniagrab sale here in Denver.

I'm hoping to grab some Cartels for mine, used K2 Uprises last year but they are falling apart.

I'm leaning towards some Flux TT30 bindings, but I hear good things about the Rome 390's. Plus, the 390 trippy color is awesome. Thoughts?
