Thank you for any info!
if i remember correctly, the contact pro's are the 2nd lightest (MCs are the lightest, Union rep confirmed this for me a year ago before the Charger came out) and stiffest 'freestyle' bindings Union makes.. those are the two reasons i decided to go with the CPs.. (the Flites are the softest freestyle bindings Union makes, i believe)

now that im realizing that im purely happy with freeriding and honed my skills to a level that i can properly use the Charger, then i wouldnt mind buying it next year IF i get a good deal for them.. but for now, im loving the CP/Raptor combo, so it would take a really good deal for me to cough up $$ for the Charger when the CPs are doing a phenomenal job for me
