Default choosing a new binding

I have an burton twin (08/09) red 157.
Im getting new bindings but I dont know which one i should get...
im a freestyle and park rider...

I was thinking about one of these:
- the burton exile est
- Flow M9 09/10
- Burton Infidel 09/10

they're all different and i dont know what would be the best...
so can someone help me please and tell me wich one I should get??

or is there a better one that i should get?
if so, please keep that binding in the price range around 250 max...
im ordering from blue-tomato btw

thanks for any help

is your twin ICS? because EST only works with boards with the ICS channel, and in that case you would need to get burton, drake, and i think flow is making a compatable disk this year.

if its the old 3 hole burton pattern, get union forces. the end. especially if you ride park. people say the forces are medium flexing, but i feel like they are softer than that.

To offer something different than the tons of responses you will probably get here for Union or Rome(tried a friend's Rome Targas and hated them BTW)....I'll put my hat in for the Salomon Relays(I use the Relay Thruster, 2 friends use the Relay Pro). They have tons of lateral flex for presses and tweaks but maintain solid toe to heel response. Since demoing my pair, 2 other supervisors at the mountain I work at have switched to them.

enter the Rome 390 clan and a few other suggestions. (hint: search button, look for the box that says 'keyword')

Salomon Relay is a great option. I have several friends that swear by them. Maybe you'll like the Ride Contraband things since you're a park rat.
