How to choose burton bindings

I will buy a 156fish or 159cheetah, which set of burton ECS bindings should I use? Not the size but which one of them??

I'll be slackcountry boarding for most of the time. The terrain will mainly be wide open bowls. I would say my skills are somewhere between intermediate and advanced. I'm planning to get a Burton Fish or Burton Cheetah and wondering which set of bindings would fit the best.

I am new to the Burton bindings, what preferences and options are there available?

What is your preference, ignoring the board? Some like super responsive bindings, some like a bt of flex.

This sums it up. It's all depending on your preference. If you answer that it should be pretty easy to figure out which bindings you'll want out of the Burton Line.

Bindings in general can either be stiff (responsive) or soft (forgiving). Weight will vary with materials used in the bindings construction. Some come with asym straps vs regular straps.

Typically if you can describe what type of riding you're into and skill level people can make "soft recommendations".
