Bindings with Lib Tech TRS

I have moved on from my beginner board and need/want something a little more aggressive. After much research, I've decided on the Lib Tech TRS (probably a 154). Now I need to figure out what bindings to go with and I would love some input from everyone here.

I live on the east coast (NJ) and spend my winters in the Poconos or the occasional trip to Vermont. When money allows I take a few days to go to Utah, but 90% of my time is east coast. I don't go in the park ever (not saying I won't ever... but there aren't any plans) and am mostly all mountain and I'd like to hit some natural features. Mostly, I want something very responsive to help me progress. I demoed a pair of Burton Cartels and loved them and was leaning towards those.

Any other suggestions? I hear good things about Rome and Union, but do not know much about them. I like the ease/idea of Flow, but I'd assume these are not very responsive.

Thanks!

I got union Force bindings with my 2013 Libtech TRS 154cm.

Works great for me!

I orderred some union MC metafuse last week to go with my 2014 libtech TRS when they come out.

You got another of the same board?
What's the difference between the 2013 & 2014 TRS that you want to have both?

I'll be dumping the 2013 before the season starts.

The 2014 has a new camber profile and a new graphic.

And in a weirdo that wants a new board all the time.

The IPOs were out last year. You might be able to find some online, and hopefully on sale.
I heard the line will be expanding with new models this year.

What is the new camber profile? I have the 2013 TRS Stealth, which is C2 of course.

It's called XC2 BTX.

It got a shorter rocker section between the feet and the longer cambered sections are more under the feet.
