Default union contacts

Hi. Do Union Contacts work on a normal camber board or is it pointless in having them unless you have reverse camber?

Also, are they soft enough to use on a jib board? I have a Forum manual 153 (2010) if this helps
If not please recommend some suitable alternatives. Forum recommend the Forum Shaka bindings but they would recommend one of their own product so let me know what you think

Cheers guys/gals

James

I actually prefer my Contacts on my '08 Kink than on my gullwing SubPop. I quite like them on cambered jib boards.

thanks for your reply. Are the contact pros much better than the contacts? im not sure if i will like the higher back on the pros and whether its worth spending the extra money when im nowhere near professional. i probably won't even tell the difference? thanks again

They'll be a little stiffer side to side, it'll make riding the rest of the mountain a little easier.
