best strictly park bindings for 2012 never summer evo

I currently have 2012 rome 390 boss's but i have grown out of them. I have 2012 nike kaiju boots if that matters at all in the choice of bindings. I am currently looking at DMCC Light's, Atlas', and Contact Pros... but feel free to suggest whatever bindings you want.

I find it hard to believe you've grown out of the 390 boss. Why don't you tell us what you would like/what is missing from the 390s that you're looking for and what you liked.

Otherwise Flux rk30s, they're jib-tastic

Edit: sorry I read this as you've out grown (their holding you back) the 390s, not your foot/boot is too big for your pair

You mean your boots are too big for the bindings?

My vote is for the Contact Pro. I currently have the Atlas on my Evo, but with it being so flexy I think the Contact Pro would be a better match because it would reduce the dead spot.

Crap. Do yourself a favor and stay away from Flux. Union, Burton, Raiden, Ride, Rome...all better options.

i have RK30's as my only binding currently and i have taken them off 60+ foot jumps with no problems but i do sometimes wish i had more response out of them seeing as they are so soft, been on them for 2 years now and they are holding up pretty good. the DS30's would have more response for jumps and still be soft enough for rails and such.

why stay away from flux?
Will the contact pros still be good if i eventually get a new board geared towards pure jibbing?

Well... what to say here... BINDINGS ARE ALL PREFERENCE! there is no such thing as a park binding, no such thing as an all mountain binding. Bindings are bindings. They all have a different feel to market themselves to different preferences. So... what exactly are you looking for in the bindings? soft, hard, cushion, response? give us an idea. From what ive read and looking at the construction of the atlas sounds like they will be stiffer, and the contact pros will be on the mushier side.

Extremo has a personal hatred of Flux, which he is certainly entitled to and a know passion for all things Union, which he is also entitiled to.

Personally I'd agree the Rk30s leave a little something to be desired in regard to response when going big.

Bindings are pretty personal, if you haven't ridden a super soft binding yet you may want to try something a little stiffer first and see if those work for your board and style. A super soft binding is a compromise, there's no way around that.
