Union Contacts?

I've been looking into getting myself some new bindings. I've been riding Cartels since I've started riding, I like the way they feel but I would like a little more performance in the park. Only thing is, I tried the Union Forces for a bit and hated them - I just didn't like their feel at all. Will the contacts feel similarly to the forces or is it an entirely different feel?
I ride a park pickle and I know the contact was designed for reverse cambered boards so, yeah. Any info on how they feel beyond comfort?

There's really no camber or reverse camber bindings. That's all marketing bullshite.

If you generally liked your Cartels you won't like the Contacts. They are super soft and give very little response.

Way more money but the Malavita is a similar to feel to the Cartel but more park oriented. I would also check out K2 Uprises, Nationals if Urethane backs interest you, Flux TT30's, or Raiden Phantoms.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

The Malativas look pretty dope, thanks for the feedback.
