i have some contrabands and they are light and soft, so i would go for them, but if you are also planning on going all over then forces.
but jibs and rails i would go for contabands.

i thought the contrabands were among the lightest of all bindings because of lack of a toestrap?

forces. contrabands were cool, but the flex was still pretty stiff.

Well if its not an '11 Kink I recommend Contacts. Thats what I have on mine and quite like the way the ride.

If not those, then maybe Hurrithanes or the Contrabands.
