Default What bindings to get

So I just bought a flow quantum. I am looking to do mostly freestyle and a little bit of park. I was looking at union flite bindings since they're union and on eBay they are cheap. I really have no idea what to look for. So any suggestions would be nice.

Your list of options is virtually endless. I'm not familiar with that particular board, but based on your stated riding preferences, two names that are gonna come up early and often are Flux TT30 and Rome 390.

Flites will be too soft on the Quantum.

Look for K2 Companies, Ride Rodeos, Flow NXT AT's or NX2 AT's, Flux DMCC Lights, Rome 390 Boss, Burton Cartel or Malavita, or Salomon Chiefs.

I think I might go with the Rome's since they arent exactly a pocket buster. Considering the Flux's cost more than what I payed for my board lol. Thanks for the advice.

Last season Burton Cartels will save you money or you could go with K2 Formula, again a 2012 model will save you cash.

If you go Burton, do NOT get EST.

Why are the EST's so bad? The only reason I ask is because I can really only find Burton Cartel EST's for the 2012 model.

Because they only work on Burton Channel boards. I learned the hard way when I bought EST bindings that didn't fit my NS.

Well thanks for the heads up lol. Do you know anything about the Rome 390's? If so, what would you choose between those and the Cartels?
