Default jib friendly bindings

ive been looking for a new set of bindings for a while and i need a jib friendly binding that can do jumps as well.Doesnt have to be good for anywhere else like freeride (got a separate board for that). The price can be at most $250. People told me about the contraband but i heard its not to jib friendly.

That's what they were designed for... I have a pair for my jibstick, can't complain. Not sure what complaints you're hearing but "not for jibbing" befuddles me

i don't think i've ever heard anything bad about 390's, everrr.
flux titans, 390s, union forces, or some burton cartels should all get the job done for you pretty well.

Not Cartels, they are a jump or freeride type now. Stiffer than they used to be. From Burton look at Customs.

Union Flites should be a nice fit, Contrabands, Flux RK30's, K2 Hurrithanes, and Contact Pro's.

For really tweaking out your jibs, I'd say go for the Flux RK30/DS45 or K2 Hurrithane

I would think you'd want a softer flex for more flexibility. The nice thing about the new urethane backed bindings is that they're designed to still give you enough control for heel/toe carving.
