Union Contacts or DLXs?

Hey all, just trying to get an opinion. Never owned a pair of Unions before. I'm looking at the Contacts and the DLXs but I can't decide which. The DLXs are their lowest-end binding but the Contact is like one step up.

Anyone know the main differences? Board feel? Flex? All the Union propaganda is really confusing me. Right now everything is just about the same price because it's summer.

DLX is the opening pricepoint binding. More of a do anything no frills binding. This binding used to be our $180 binding and when the Contact was developed, we moved it down the line instead of getting rid of it. Jibbers tend to like it because of it's simplicity and durability.
The Contact is more of a loose skate truck feel than say a more responsive binding like our Force. Lots of dampening in it and that allows for good board flex. Dudes that like to mini bike around that park like this binding.
