Default which Ride bindings for me?

Hello friends. I have been searching the forum quite a bit and narrowed down on what bindings I want. I am trying to decide between Ride Contraband and Delta movement. I currently have old Technine MFM (very heavy) and GNU Rider's choice (also very heavy)

I ride east coast (new york area), 5'6'' and 140lb with size 8 thirty-two lashed boots. Set my mind on getting Neversummer evo.
While both bindings are freestyle oridneted, I get a feeling that Contraband is softer, lighter, more suitable for jibs and Delta is tad bit heavier, stiffer, and more suitable for landing big jumps.

I never get a chance to get powder or back-country and I pretty much hang out at park all day jibbing, doing 1 and 3s at kicker, and doing some flatground tricks. What I concentrate the most on are flatground and big kickers.

Which should I get from contraband and delta movement. I don't mind spending time to set it up, and I do like it lighter. But also have feeling that contraband might not be able to handle big landings.

Any help appreciated

If you are hot lapping the park the Contraband is not a bad binding. This year's is much improved from the first year's offering. I found it to be a solid ride, and I am just a freerider anymore. It would be more than adequate for the park.

Of course you can't go wrong with the tried and true two strap binder...

This year's Deltas are pretty light. Given the choice between the two bindings, I'd definitely take the Deltas. The new Stealth highback is getting rave reviews from everyone who rides it. A better comparison between Contraband and MVMNT bindings would be between the Nitrane Contraband and Delta. They're pretty much the same bindings, just one has two straps and the other has one. Same ankle strap, same highback.
