Default Union bindings?

So Im somewhat brand new to snowboarding with the exception of boarding Big Bear a couple times and Mammoth once. I have only rented equipment and never really payed much attention to what I was riding and never took the plunge and bought my own gear. Now I have officially bought my own board and bindings. I have heard awesome reviews on my board but cannot find any reviews on my bindings since they were a limited run binding. Can you guys help me out? Anybody ride these or know people who have? Any feedback would be appreciated.

They look like shiny Union Contacts to me, probably quite similar.

not at the moment but im looking into the thirtytwo Mavens (another joe sexton signature). Not really familiar with the dude but he just puts out cool looking products.

also if you guys are wondering my board I bought is a 2013 Lib Tech Burtner Box Scratcher

all brand new equipment just last years models to save some coin.

theyre quoted as a "franken-binding" DLX base, with contact ankle/ toe straps, contact high back, and mini flite lowback (whatever a lowback is)

Ohhh I see the mini "lowback" now. Instead if having the full height high back from the Contacts, they took the kids one and slapped it on there...lol These look they are really specific to jibbing and street riding to me.

worry less about how they look and more about how they fit. You can't see them when you're riding.

tried them on at my local ride shop and they fit quite well when referring to how they look I mean they are very low profile and not bulky and thats what I like about them also quite comfortable and flexible (forgiving for a new rider im told)

I wonder what the benefit is to having the smaller highback (lowback?) on a full sized binding. Maneuverability maybe? I wonder if thats going to affect my riding all mountain negatively.

It always cracks me up when people go out and buy gear, THEN seek out reviews on it.
