Bindings to match a YES board

Gonna try out the Yes Greats board this year. Looking for bindings to comp. I using 08 390 with my Rome Graft that's been through hell and want something more all mountain this season. Never had any other bindings so I'm not so educated in that field.

My style: all mountain freestyle 70 and 30 in the park, mainly cruising the groom runs, hitting lots of natural stuff, a little rails, boxes and small kickers.

Any recommendations would be much appreciated!

Was thinking Flux, cartels etc... There's so many and everything just sounds the same.

Targas would be my go-to for all mountain.

If I was getting a YES Greats I would be putting Malavitas, Flow NX2-AT's, Raiden Phantoms, Salomon Holograms, or Flux DMCC Lights on it.

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

Nivek... after reading some of your comments I'm curious. Would you have recommended last years cartels?? (read you don't care for this yrs changes)

It's not that I don't care for this year's changes, in fact I personally prefer the react strap over the Asym. So I actually like that better. Its just that Burton is still saying it's stiffer than the Malavita and I just can't see how. It's the same glass content in the base, both ReFlex, and the highback on the Cartel is noticeably softer. In fact I'm actually really looking forward to riding it as I have high hopes for it as a park dominating binding. Return of the park Cartel!

And I wasn't really too fond of last years highback really. It wasn't bad and did its job, but nothing more. It wouldn't mush when I pushed into it, but it also never really snapped me through turns like others have. And if you go 2012, definitely get the Asym. Its better than the standard.

Thanks Nivek! I have last years restricted and was/am interested in your thoughts.
