Union Contact Pro
 
Anyone know anything about these? Im looking at getting them for a 2011 Lib-Tech TRS. Im assuming they're gonna be a little stiffer than regular contacts. I prob spend about half my time in the park and half making runs so i need something thats good in the park but stiff enough to charge on the slopes.

Having a flatter highback shouldn't be a big deal because you still have the ability to add forward lean for a tighter response is needed. But if flex and tweakability is what you're looking for, than this is it.

How would you compare these to a set of Forces?

Honestly I think the TRS is going to out-stiff the Contact Pros. I would be looking at Force SL's if I were you. On a budget? Data's. Really on a budget? Forces. REALLY on a budget? K2 Formulas. REALLY REALLY on a Budget? Ride EX.

That was another thing i was wondering about. I'm really wanting a pair of Unions and price isn't a huge issue i just want a set of bindings thats gonna perform in and out of the park and work well with the board.

I have Datas on my Indoor FK and rode the SL for a while on my SubPop. They feel similar, but the SL's are a little more tweakable, softer highback, and the Datas are little more plushy. The SL's are also lighter. Lighter and a little softer for tweaks is why I say for a 50/50 split to aim for the SL's.


Though this may seem a little off topic, what model/year boots do you have?

I'm kinda liking the forces for some reason and i have the 2009 Burton Jeremy Jones boots.

i dont mean to be a threadstealer, but does anyone have an idea if these would work well on an 09 skate banana?
