Default Rome 390s or K2 Formulas??

Yo...I just purchased the 09 Atomic Hatchet and I am just trying to pair it with some bindings. I am new to the park this year and I am using my Hatchet for mostly park and freestyle but I still want to freeride it and hit jumps and stuff on the mountain. I am reading that the Rome 390s are geared more towards the intermediate to advanced park rider. Are they still a good choice for me or should I be strapped into something else? I am using this board as my second board so I would like to fit it accordingly to what I want to use it for. I mostly freeride with my other board (Burton Indie 155/Ride EX bindings). Are the K2 Formulas a decent binding for mostly street/park and freeride? Should I be using a more flexible binding or a semi stiff binding?? Any info and suggestions would be helpful. I am not necessarily stuck on these 2 bindings. I just want the best fit for me. Thanks in advance.

Formulas are slightly stiffer, but they are way more versatile. They are decent in the park (good for jumps, but too stiff if all you do is jib), but they are boatloads better on steeps than the 390s. That said, if you're staying in the park, grab 390s.

Hah maybe I coulda worded it better, but since we're just comparing Formulas to 390s, Formulas > 390s mountain more; 390s > Formulas park more. But really, both are sick binders.

and yeah, 133 for 09 Formulas are a damn good price..

If you still haven't gotten the Formulas, I just ordered some for $107.99 from Trusnow. I'll be getting them this week and it will be snowing at some local spots this weekend, so, yeah, I'm stoked.
