Ride Contrabands vs Ride Revolt

Are there any differences other then the the new toe strap system and different foot bed wedge?
I want fairly responsive bindings to help with moguls. I mainly free ride and want a binding for an intermediate rider.

The Contraband is a park binding. Get the Revolt.

Revolt or maybe go with the SPI. SPI has the stiffer R2 chassis and highback.

Don't get the Revolt! Baseplate is tiny, lots of flex. Heelcup would not stay tight, even with Loctite. Wedgie footbed design is retarted, lots of movement, plastic shattered at the mounting. Ride totally missed the mark. Used the revolts maybe 10 days. Upgraded to the Delta. Baseplate and heelcup are fixed, and the wedgie is designed much better.

I was about to order Revolts last night. I'm glad I waited till morning to see what you guys would say. You don't think the SPis would be too stiff paired along with a DH2.4 on an intermediate rider? I'm extremely confused on what to get as a binding. So far just about every person who has responded has said a different binding. If you guys could do me a favor and suggest one or two bindings only and PLEASE explain why. Like "more flex" or "responsive" or any reason you think it would make a good binding would really be awesome. I'm buying bindings and I'm not really sure why I would have grabbed any particular model other then someone said to get it lol. So please more then things like Rome 390 Boss is the best. If you like them tell me why they are the best. I'm really just searching for information so I can know more about bindings and what to look for.

P.S. So far all of these bindings have been suggested to me and I really don't know why one would be better then the other
Ride SPI
Ride Double Agent
Ride EX
Ride Contraband
Ride Nitrane
Ride Deltas
Ride Alphas
Ride Revolt
Ride Optimo
Rossignol Viper
Rome 390
Rome 390 Boss
Rome Targa
Union Force
K2 Auto Ever
Flux SF45
Burton Cartel
Burton Prophecy
Burton Customs
K2 Formulas
Flow NXT-FSE
Flow NXT-ATSE


As you can see the 22 bindings suggested to me are a bit overwhelming Lol
Anyway I hope someone out there can help me out

I really dont want to seem rude as I am new here and Im a very nice person but why does no one read what I post. I said WHY do you like the binding you like. I hate to buy something I know little about. If someone is like why did you buy that binding and my only answer is. I chose it over the other 21 bindings suggested because someone said they liked it and its the best. If I offend anyone or seem disrespectful it is not intended.

NXT-AT's cause they provide all the response you'll need and they are the most comfortable.
