Depends on the board. If its anything stiffer than a Park rocker, SubZero or the like then I would aim for 390 bosses. The Contacts are a super soft binding that work well with a super soft board. You loose too much performance with them on anything stiffness over a 3.5 out of 10. Salomonder being a 1 and like a NS Raptor being a 10.


and since noone elaborated.... Sierra was putting their current year gear on big sale right after or right before Christmas, something small shops can't do. Their business plan was designed to put everyone else out of business so they owned the market. Now its against contract with most companies to permanently discount anything until around February.

Rome > Union for sure. I've owned a handful from each co. over the years.

as people already said, contacts is soft soft soft binding. its pretty useless on even midstiff boards imo.


did buy them to replace my cartels since i wanted a softer binding but got too much of the softneff, but planing on buying rome artifact and that should be a killer combo in my mind.

edit: i also think its alot better to have too stiff of a binding instead of having too soft of a binding. stiff binding on a soft board gonna make the board feel even softer in worst case. soft binding on a stiff board is unrideble imo
