Which pair of unions will suit my style?

Hi, Last february i started boarding and i just cheaped out on equipment but i went 3 times a week so I got okay-ish at boarding and this year I'm going to buy some good equipment. I want a pair of union binding and i was looking at the Contact Pro's because i ride park 70% of time, but I was wondering. Will they be good for jumps and If i want to do a couple of runs not in the park will they not preform well/hurt my legs and feet? I heard the highback could be a trouble spot for non-park runs. If you guys think they are gonna do this do you have another suggestion i.e the Atlas or the Forces. Thanks.

PS (I ride an 09 k2 anagram)

I use my Flites for all mountain. I know they're supposed to be more of a park binding, but I like the light weight they have, and the board contact they have. I think any binding can be used for whatever. It's all about preference.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I can ride my high backs on groomers no problem. I've seen no real problems with it. Granted i ride park most the time, but still like bangin out a few runs. In short, it shouldn't be to big of a problem.
