Advice: Union Contact Pro, ect?

Just got my 2010 Lib-tech skate banana, and was putting my Burton Missions on and noticed a crack on the hi-back that goes all the way through the plastic. I guess after 4 seasons it's time for some new bindings.

Riding style: Love to play in the park and on jumps, but I find myself on the big runs hauling ass/making my own runs through the trees about 70% of the time.

I was looking into the Union Contact Pro's and they look nice, seem to be good for what I want.

Any other options I should be looking into?

I'd like to stay below $200

Thanks for the help,
-Adam

Flux sf45's would be exactly what you're looking for. If you're looking for a performance binding don't hesitate to spend the extra cash.

Thanks for the response. Is flux a relatively new brand?

Any other options to look at?

Flux has been around for a long time. You mentioned the contact pro's, and i must say they are a sick pair of bindings. Super light, minimalistic, and strong as hell.

Flux has been around for a looooong time. I've been riding Union for 5 years now and recently picked up some flux. Flux has been making improvements every year to their bindings and has thoroughly surpassed Union in performance and comfort. I've downgraded my Force to my rail board and will be riding my Flux full time.
