This depends a lot on the feel you are looking for. The Five standard gets a one piece highback and a nylon base. It is noticably more flexy than the Five SE (or the M9) which gets an aluminum heelcup from the mod-back. The top panel on the mod back is very flexible but on the whole it is still more of a power binding than the Five due to the aluminum usage. The Five SE and the M9 are very similar with the differences being the flex in the top panel and the design of the surf strap.

Both count. The basepate is responsible for allowing the board to flex without restriction and to translate rider applied energy into the board for controlling torsional twist, etc. Stiffer baseplates transfer power better but depending on the design can restrict board flex more. Stiffer highbacks do the same in helping with heelside, leg applied pressure but they can limit really tweaked out moves.

Would a binding with stiff baseplate and soft highback be forgiving on a jib board like the draft or artifact rocket? Or should I just look to a complete forgiving binding?

This depends a lot on preference. Some riders always want very supportive (less forgiving) bindings, even on pure jib boards. A moderately stiff base will restrict board flex a bit but the combo that you have mentioned above is still very common for park and play boards.

Thanks man . The five se and m9 se would be in that range right? Both have tweak 6 highback. Would the nx2se's baseplate be too stiff on a soft board? I ve seen flow verves with nx2s bindings on their team riders boards, but they're pros so it is a very different situation

The Five SE and M9 will be very fun and are a good mix of flex and support for a more flexible board. The NX2 SE is very fun as well but it does have a stiffer base. It wil offer great response and you do not need to be advanced to enjoy that.
