Jib bindings

I'm looking for excellent bindings to go along with my pure jib setup. So far I have a 2011 Skate Banana and 2012 Vans Andreas Wiig boots. Can anyone suggest some good bindings to go along with my pure jib setup? I have been looking at the Union Contact and Contact Pros, but I don't see the difference between the two. Also, would Rome 390 Bosses be any good for jibbing setups? Any other suggestions are really appreciated. Thank you!

Union flight or force. I've been on my Force for 5 seasons now and I haven't found anything I've liked better. But I did have to get a toe strap upgrade. But Union revamped it this year so it may be better.

I hear the Forces are better all mountain because they're a bit stiffer. Are you sure they're good for pure jibs?

They are really flexible. 390 are more of an all mountain bindings. They aren't a pure jib binding. I haven't heard a lot about them, but the little I did was pretty good. I don't think many people ride them, there may be a reason for that, there may not. Do you have your boots yet?

Yup I bought my boots like two weeks ago. And did you mean you haven't heard a lot about the 390? Those are actually the bindings I'm using right now, but they're 2009.

Nah, the Flux. Not a whole lot of people ride them I think. I would make sure it fits your boots first. Stiffer bindings can be just as good as flexible. It's what you like, I like stiffer bindings for jibbing so you can really get strong presses and manipulate your board.

Yea, I was planning on getting suggestions on what bindings and then going into the boardshop with my boots.

So it looks like the Union Flite, Contact Pro, and Contacts are my choices. I just need to figure which one is best for jibs..
