I just picked up some contact pro's the other day, lot's of cushioning and they have lot's of flex. I would definitely recommend them.

Also, would Rome 390 Bosses be any good for jibbing setups? Any other suggestions are really appreciated. Thank you!

Flux RK 30



or possibly the Burton Malavita's ????

I'm 185 so a little stiffer binding isn't really a hindrance for jibbing for me. I actually prefer the feel of the force over the contact simply because I find the contact to flexible. If I was 20-40 lbs lighter, maybe a more flexible jib binding would be better. So it really is relative to a lot of things.

I would recommend the Contact or Contact Pro over the flight because the 3D strap is much more comfortable and responsive than the basic straps on the Flight.
