Default Which fluxes for me?

Well, this year i promised myself to keep my old gear, but I guess not.
My current gear is
-GNU CARBON CREDIT
-Union Contacts
-Salomon boots

I know this is a perfect setup but my board and my bindings are too soft and I don't ride park that much.

I'm the kind of the guy who carves and hit constant smaller jumps instead of jibbing.

So I wanted to change my board but im not in a very good situation(money-wise) so I decdied to get new bindings

I really like the Fluxes and I was looking at RK30(which is like my contacts and union forces) sf45(which is like the targas(Rome)) and DS30 and TT30 or whatever.

There are so many models to chose from and I cannot chose one. I want my new bindings to be a bit more stiffer than the unions, what should I chose?

PS. I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY like the designs of this year's RK30's, but I hear there's basically no difference in stiffness from my contacts. Is it true? Is it worth changeing If i change to RK30's?

NO.

Either buy the TT30 or the SF45. Think functionality. Ever experience the disappointment from a set of perfect fake tits feeling like a f*cking softball once you got your hands on them? Exactly....

Also - based on the info you provided, I am not sure that addressing your bindings is the right approach. A stiffer binding will just transfer more flex to the board.

Stiffer bindings might help a little, but not much. You don't have that aggressive of a board. Its Gnu's lowest model, so it's very basic and just above beginner.

TT30's of anything.

Go with the TT30's. The RK highbacks are like rubber..I'd categorize them as jib specific.

I have the DS30's. Rode a couple a times so far. I love them. They are flexible, but surprisingly very responsive in my opinion, even for a guy like me that's pushing 210lbs. I have them on a Lib Tech Attack Banana, and I feel it matches up perfectly. They are forgiving and nice for freestyle, but the highback does transfer energy very well for good response. And they are light, cool looking and comfortable.

Yes the RK's are like the Contacts in response. I've ridden both. Go TT30.
