helps! bindings!

1. I don't know helluvalot about bindings. I've always gone middle-of-the-road, in terms of price and type. I've stuck with Burton Missions the last 4 years, before that I had a pair of K2s but I can't remember the model.

I'm trying to outfit my new Rome Mod Rocker - I've heard a bunch of noise about the Rome 390s and that they're a great freestyle/park binding (right?). I've also heard-tell of Flux and Union. Don't know much about them. I'd rather not spend a tremendous amount of $. I may very well stick with a new pair of Missions but I'm curious as to what else might suit my riding style and what has worked for those of you who may have a similar riding style to myself.

My riding? I'm an avid freestylist. Lots of park, lots of all mountain playing. Butters, presses, big jumps, charging, trees, jibs, groomers all of it. I ride the northeast. Not too much powder.

2. Boots. I really like my Ride Jackson's. They are a stiffer boot but I like that, makes me feel secure.

Can anyone help me out? Looking for suggestions is all. Thanks!

K2 Formulas, Flow NX2's, Rome 390 Bosses, Flux DMCC Lights, Raiden Phantoms, Burton Malavita's. Those will all match up well with the Mod Rocker.

Thanks Basti I'll check out the Shasta.

Nivek (or whomever else that can speak to this) which of those bindings you listed are the most stiff (relatively) out of the group?
