Thanks. I think about getting one of these bindings then:

1.) a new Rome 390 Boss in S/M
2.) a new Union Atlas in M/L
3.) a used Burton Diode 11/12 in M
or 4.) a used Cartel 2011 in M

which one should I prefer for my riding style (see above)? Or do you have any other recommendations?

I'll sell my old binding then.

Yeah good catch.

Large is def too big for a size 9. You won't be able to center your foot with the unibody baseplate. It's why you have too much heel overhang in the pic.

You'll have to get the right binding size. You can't go wrong with any of the those listed above.

don't want to read allll other posts

To me that looks like you've got some major overhang of the heel. you should lay the board flat on the ground, wood floor, carpet, whatever, and tilt it to ur heel side and ur toe side, this will let u know if there will be any dragging occuring
im no pro or anything, but you should get a binding that matches the stiffness of your board for more control

My thoughts are that the 390s and Cartels offer the best fit, for your boot and board flex.

The Diodes are to stiff and there have been issues with highback breakage on them. They're not a binding I would want to buy used.
