Does that make me old if I don't understand the usage of greasy ..... say steezy dude, I can't handle the newness... go with the contacts.

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

I've been Riding contacts for 3 years. I would buy RK30's. Though I would first buy Flow Quattros. That's what I currently ride on my Signal.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

i got a new pair of contacts this year... they're good bindings but they definitely don't live up to the union hype. the leather straps are nice, no pressure points so i can't really complain but the damn ratchets get loose from time to time. also the ankle strap gets ridiculously loose so i have to tighten them every once in a while. also, adjusting the contacts, highback rotation, size etc, is an absolute nightmare. the highback and ankle straps are all connected by the same screw so you kind of have to do all the adjustments at once... the only thing that is really good about these bindings is that they're light weight? that said.. i'd still ride 390s over these all day everyday... too bad my old bindings broke

pros: lightweight, soft, forgiving for landings, no pressure points
cons: hard to adjust, loose straps, loose ratchets
