Flux rk30 vs. Raiden zero vs. switchback bindings

So i just picked up a Lobster park board (same as bataleon airobic) and want to find good bindings for it. I ride mostly jumps and jibs. I had flux tt30s before and loved them, not sure if the rk30 would be too soft for jumping.
I was wondering if the 2013 zeros have the 2 screw mounting system, it just seems sketchy to me to only have two screws in.
switchbacks are kind of just a wild card because i found a good deal on the eiki pro model but they just look kind of stupid haha
thanks for any help

The Zeros have a 4x mounting system. They have a good youtube vid showing the features. You have to find it yourself tho, dont know how to link stuff...

I ride switchbacks on my parkbaord. I like the combo. They are good bindings (a little pricy if not bought on sale) The Eiki pro model has a FLAD on it unlike most models of switch backs.

I think the thread in question was the one where the "rep" was pretty much only promoting the color swapping idea, which to be honest is the most pointless aspect. I do like the ability to have the binding I want how I want but i dont care about the colors.

Heyyyo! Flux lady here... A lot of our Flux team riders ride the RK's for everything. Zack Wilmott, Spencer Link, Keoni Kaimuloa, Chad Tarbell, Justin Mulford... among others. Flux makes urethane highbacks with a stable spine. When you grab hold of one of these bindings... you can bend it side to side, but you can't bend it front to back. It's not going to taco over when you are doing front to back carving. Although it is the softest binding in the Flux line... it does carry some good support for jumping and landing heavy. Let me know if you have any other pregunas, senors.

Ive never tried raiden or switchback, though have heard good things about both, but I love my rk30's from flux. They are a bit on the soft side for the type of riding I do but they still handle anything I throw at them no problem. Awesome jib bindings and I've taken them off 60+ foot jumps without a problem. Pretty durable as well considering they are pretty much(rode my 390s a few times here and there) the only binding I've used the past 2 seasons of 100+days each and just started getting on their last legs at the end of last season.
