Bindings only for use with jibs

So I recently bought a lobster Jib Board 148. Im 5'8" and 130 pounds. Ive been trying to decide on getting flux ds30's or flux rk30's. Whats the difference? These bindings would be used only for buttering pressing and jibbing around the park and in the streets. I just want a soft comfortable Jib bindings that ill be able to press for days with, even on a cambered board. Also if anyone has any suggestions of other pure jib bindings I would love to hear them. I don't care about paying more for ds30's but I have heard the are stiffer than the rk's and that they have a stiffer highback and baseplate. I prefer more of a playful feel in bindings but I wont ride bindings that feel like wet noodles. Help is much appreciated!

Honestly in feel they're very similar. Biggest difference is weight. I'd say save the money and just get RK's.

Others that you might like, Flow Five SE, Salomon District, Switchback, or Raiden Pushers.

i don't know anything about those bindings, but i have the same deck and it's super fun. you'll be stoked on it.

judging by nivek's response, and the fact that you'll use it purely for jibbing - i'd go with money saving option as well, why pay more for a little extra tech when you're just going to destroy them, right?
