Default Bindings for T.Rice HP?

Hey y'all, just received my new Trice hp 157 in the mail and have been trying to decide what bindings I should throw on it for this upcoming season.. But, before I get flamed for not using the search button, I've been researching for weeks/months about it but haven't really found anything that's settled me on something.. I've read all the reviews I could find, but am still up in the air between mainly two bindings... The Burton Malavita's and the new Genesis.

Not many people talk about the Trice (especially not the HP's) so I figured I would just throw up a thread and see if I could catch any answers.. I'm 5'11", 187lbs with the size 11 Zoom Ites. I'm about 80% trail/ 20% park. Lemme know what you guys think!

Genesis or Diodes. Malavitas are probably a little soft for that board.
I'm waiting for the exact same board to arrive and I'm putting Diodes on it.

I didn't even look at the diodes to be honest, but have been at the Genesis.. Only thing that I heard is that they are softer then the Malavita's (but I've also heard that they're a little harder too), and lib rates the trice hp at a 7.. Even though it's not THAT stiff in person.

I put last years Prophecys on my T.Rice HP and had all the control I could ask for, but I've heard the Genesis is softer... I would go Vitas or Cartels for that board. Diode would be too much IMO.

That's what I've read the most of, a lot of people putting prophecies on it and loving it... Then I heard that the Genesis was supposed to replace the Prophecy, so I figured that would be the best route to go! But then everyone is saying they're either softer then the Vita's or harder then the Vita's. I don't think I'll go Cartels to be honest, but I'm always open to everything. The Salomon Holograms are in the back of my head too but, super unsure

any of the ones above will be fine. It's not like the genesis are made out of cardboard.
2014 cartel ltd (genesis base and straps, cartel highback) would also be a good choice.
Unless you are super picky, any one of the vitas, genesis or cartel ltd will stoke you out

What's the difference between the Genesis base and the Cartel Base? Aren't they both 30% shortglass/nylon?

Regardless, I would go with the Cartel ltd (after reading up on it)... it has autocant, and the same straps as the genesis but a stiffer highback. It's really a deal compared to the genesis which is like 80 dollars more for a funky, less responsive highback.

I picked up the 2014 cartel ltd for my trs on supras suggestion. These would be an even better fit for a slightly stiffer board like the trice
