Lobster Freestyle:What Bindings to get?

So I just picked up my new 2013 Lobster Freestyle 152.
I will be aloud to get new binding for Christmas and I wanted to know which to get.
For now they will be rocking my pair of 2010/2011 Burton missions. The missions are a pretty solid bindings but I want a breath of fresh air so to speak.
So I have been very interested in Burtons "Re-Flex" disk plate.
I was considering either.

The 2013 Burton Malavita Reflex.
The 2013 Burton Cartel Reflex
The 2013 Burton Cobra Shark Reflex
And the 2013 Burton Mission Reflex.

I know those are all Burton bindings (and a lot of people on this forum have mixed opinions on burton) But I wanted some suggestions from you guys and some reasons why. You guys never have steered me wrong in the past and I don't think you will be starting now.
The Boots I have are the Nike Zoom Force 1 just to give an idea of footprint size ect.

Please Reply

PS. After last winter I think I will want to stay away from Union especially with my new boots.

Emerica should make snowboard boots

To my understanding they were more along the lines of Jib Bindings.

I replaced my 2011 Cartel (standard disk) with the 2012 reflex last season and I couldn't tell much difference. However, this was on an all mtn/pow board that never touched the park - ymmv.

If you wanna try something different. Try the switchbacks. Bataleon/Yeah For It makes both switchbacks and Lobster 'Baords'.

Not saying they're optimized, but it couldn't hurt.

If you think about it the mission bindings get cartel hand-me-downs every couple years so if you buy new missions its like buying a year or two old cartel. Pretty sweet i think. I dunno how you ride but cartel highbacks are the standard for responsiveness between jibbing and steeps imo

this.

If you want to save money, the missions or cobrasharks are great value. Cartel reflex vs malavita reflex? I'd get the cartels just because I'm not a big fan of the asym strap on the vitas, and the heel hammock is a weak point (as in, chances are it might get ripped)
