Thumbs up Bindings Comparisons (before I purchase)

I've been boarding for a couple of years now, and though I've been mostly freeriding, I wanted to start exploring my potential in freestyle/park riding this season. I own a pair of old Flow Flite 1 and although those are nice for freeriding, they are heavy and a bit on the stiff end (especially side-to-side). I decided to get a new pair of binding that'll give me some room to experiment, so I did some research and have come down to three choices: Flux Super Titan, Rome 390, and Union Data.

I was wondering if anyone from this forum could give me some feedback on their experience with this seasons models of the binding I just listed, especially on the Super Titans and Data. I know a lot of boarders highly praise the 390s wherever I asked, but I feel at this point I've heard enough standalone feedback on those, and would much rather appreciate comparative analysis between the 390 vs Super Titans and Data.

My board is a Gnu Riders Choice BTX 154.5 for reference.

Any sound advice from experience will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I bought a Burton Supermodel 172, so naturally I was gonna go with Burton C-60's. When I got to the store, I just couldn't believe how flimsy and pliable they felt in my hands. No way. I had Ride Betas on my Yukon 172, so I bought another set for the Supermodel. They are a simple binding, you can adjust the highback according to the angle you have your stance set at, (so the highbacks stay flush with your board), plus the chassis is aircraft grade aluminum, and they're real snappy and responsive. Less is more, so other than straps (of which any brand will break) I highly recommend Ride Betas since they're so simple in design. Just don't get confused with the Alphas-a different strap configuration to hose you almost double the price. They claim it's a new space age aluminum, but really, aircraft grade works just fine.

I have a pair of the Rising Sun Stream SF's and have rocked Super Titan's before. As far as a park binding, in my opinion, you can not find a better binding than Flux. They are park specific bindings. If you ever have a chance to hold some, grab the high back and twist, it will twist more than a normal binding due to it's construction and the fact that it is a park binding. With that being said, it will still hold its own at speed if you still want to cruise around the mountain. I have used many, many bindings, Ride, Union, K2, to name a few, and as long as I'm a park rat, I will stay right with the Flux line.
