I've got the contacts and absolutely love them. Really strong and super light. You really can't go wrong with either

Trust me, the contact is hyped up as a park binding, but it does just as well as an all mountain binding. I was worried how the contact would ride outside the park because the highback is super flexible, but i have no complaints

Contacts are alright but you're going to get a better baseplate with the forces and much better straps. Get the forces.
