New bindings for Ride Kink

Looking for some other suggestions on bindings for my Kink. Want something with ALOT of play/flex, and not trying to break the bank either. For park/buttering/jibbing. No more than $150.

Looking at a Union Contact right now.

Any ideas?

I think the contacts would suit that board well, take a look at my review on the contact SLs

My friend who ride a kink too has the contrabands and is a jib monkey. He said intially he had to get use to them but really likes the bindings now.

Cool thanks. Good review. I was actually thinking about buying these also. But sierrasnowboard told me the highback was the one from the Force SL. And the Union website says that the Force SL's are for freeriding. So I'm still kind of torn between the Contact and Contact SL.

They also told me the other difference is that the toe cap is from the 2011 Union bindings. But that's no big deal for me.

I'll probably make my decision on Saturday, since it's 40% off if you buy it in-store.
