Looking for new Binding help!?!

Newer to the forum been riding for 8 years now and have always ridden Ride Bindings...My last pair were 06/07 Ride Betas Mvmnt....I recently Purchased a new 2013 Rome Agent Rocker 160w and im looking for some bindings to slap on..
My boot is a size 11M..

I Ride 60% Park, 40% Everything else
Im looking for something no softer than 5/10

I Want something Made with Metal which is why im looking at...

Ride
Rome SDS
Union
(NO burton sorry guys)

Canting is a must.

I was looking for feedback on these companies from people how may have bought stuff or demoed stuff in the past couple years since my setup is pretty old.

Any comments or help would be greatly appreciated

i'm not sure which bindings have the canting feature but i love my rome 390s. they have the "auto strap" feature which i don't care about but some like it. it just keeps the strap out of the foot bed. they're a little on the heavy side but i'm fine with that. the straps have gel and super comfortable.

i hear nothing but great things about union but i've never tried. look into the contacts or stiffer force

Metal v. plastic is a personal choice, but I don't understand not considering plastic. Union is ount since you want canting. Look at the mob boss or 390 boss from rome and the mastro and capo from ride.

Unions got the Factory coming out next year with canting. It's essentially the Atlas with team highbacks.

I won't consider plastic because is break ability in the cold is higher then metal plus I'm a big dude at 6' 228 so plastic isn't ideal unions have a slight cant factory like 1.5 I believe but I've heard nothing but bad about their toe straps...

The 390 bosses look real nice!

Are the meastros considered park/all mtn bindings!?
Thanks against guys

I ride the maestros and they are an all mountain freestyle binding. I ride everything and I love them.. By everything, I mean backcountry, steeps, pow, trees, park, everything

Check out the Ride Revolts. They are a 5 flex rating. I've been using these all season and have been happy with them. The only problem I've had is the toe strap ripping, but with Rides warranty, they replaced it for me.

I'm pretty sure they come with a one year warranty.
