Default Flux Rk30 vs Union Contact PRO

Hey guys need a little help. My local shop is opening soon and I need new bindings. just got a burton hero 134 and am deciding what bindings to get. I hit a lot of jumps in the park and a lot of rails. I'm always in the park. Help please!

Contact pro isn't really a park binding. YOu should be looking at union forces or contacts.

I love my RK30s. They are the perfect stiffness for the park riding I do.

Easy entry. Ratchets are solid and the level of adjustability is amazing.

Either are will work in park but they will feel difference. The Contact Pro is incredibly light but is fairly mid to mid-stiff flexing. It's just soft enough to do some jibbing on but not super buttery.

The Contact Pro is essentially the Contact. The only differences are the slightly altered contact pattern, upgraded straps and different highbacks.

I would take RK30 and Contact Pro over Force. I would take a lot of bindings over the Force: Cartel, Malativta, K2 Uprisee, Indy, Formula, Company, Rome 390 or Targas, Flux TT30, SF45, DS30.
