Will 2014 Contact Pro fit on 2012 Lib Tech TRS?

Hey all, I'm going to pick up a pair of 2014 Contact Pro's after work and just saw a thread from a guy who said the Contact Pro's didn't fit on his board because his inserts weren't 2x4. but rather 4x4. Just wanted to confirm with the community that the Contact Pro's will fit on my 2012 Lib Tech TRS. Thanks for any and all responses!

Okay awesome. Also one more question for you guys. I'm unsure whether my boots are size 10 or 11 (which shouldn't change anything regarding the question), but I have Nike Kaiju's and I'm wondering if you think it'd be better to go with the M/L size binding, or the L/XL size. Thanks for the responses once again!

Huh, strange. I was mistaken then. I was under the impression that design was dead and buried.

You sure it was a Bataleon Disaster? My roommate last year was a sub-rep for the brand, and all his boards were 2x4.

You're right in the middle of the size range. I have 10.5 Kaijus and run M/L Atlas' and that's what I would run. I can fit into L/XL bindings without an issue, but I'd rather not have the toe/heel drag if I can get away with it.

Yeah, would much rather go with the M/L if I can properly fit into them. Do you have to extend the heel cup all as far out as possible?

EDIT: Also, how do you like the Atlas'? Have you ridden on the Contact Pros at all? What would you say the primary difference is between the Atlas and Contact Pros are just based off of specs? Thanks!

Pic lifted from evo.com. I was pretty amazed to see this too. I don't get it, but I believe someone mentioned that it's to allow for wider stances.
