Wiredsport 43 is typically a size 10 US which is typically a Large Flow binding. But...boot manufacturers can do some whacky things If your boots are too wide or bulky for Large go XL.

Thanks for the input. I'm quiet used to the little more flex, so don't see that as being a problem. Sizing is more a problem.
Any comments tips on the correct size? Allready had my same experience with 32 boots? Should I go for an XL?
Pricing is NASTY also...

I had 2010 or 2011 M9's in Large but my boot (32 Lashed FT in Size 43EU) was little too wide for those. Very, very snug fit. I now passed those to the misses board as she also has wide boots (32 Prion FT in Size 38EU) but at least the width is ok. (Needed some tuning to get her boots fitting perfectly, by advancing the highback, but I think that worked out)
Better to diss out some more bucks to get the NXT with the NASTY system?
I'm spending half of my boarding-time teaching youngsters, the rest is all-mountain trickery :-)

The top panel on the mod back is very flexible but on the whole it is still more of a power binding than the Five due to the aluminum usage.

The Five SE and M9 will be very fun and are a good mix of flex and support for a more flexible board. The NX2 SE is very fun as well but it does have a stiffer base. It wil offer great response and you do not need to be advanced to enjoy that.

This depends a lot on preference. Some riders always want very supportive (less forgiving) bindings, even on pure jib boards. A moderately stiff base will restrict board flex a bit but the combo that you have mentioned above is still very common for park and play boards.

Wiredsport Both count. The basepate is responsible for allowing the board to flex without restriction and to translate rider applied energy into the board for controlling torsional twist, etc. Stiffer baseplates transfer power better but depending on the design can restrict board flex more. Stiffer highbacks do the same in helping with heelside, leg applied pressure but they can limit really tweaked out moves.
