Default Pure Park Bindings

Hi, I'm just curious. What are some 100% pure park bindings (well maybe 90% park, and 10% easy groomers.. sometimes). I've tried searching, and scanned through the first couple of pages, and I find nothing. I know the Union Force and Rome 390 are great all-mountain bindings for 50/50 park and free ride. I remember seeing somewhere that someone wouldn't use the 390 for all-park. What are some all park bindings for a jib set-up with boards like the K2 WWW, Rome Artifact?

It's all about the flex of the binding. A lot of companies are making bindings that flex in ways that are beneficial to park riding without completely compromising the rigidity of response for freeriding. A Rome 390 would perform equally as well in the park as a Union Contact because of its lateral flex. Besides, you wouldn't want a super soft binding that isn't going to hold up on big kickers.

Stay away from the ride betas for park...their lateral flex is too stiff but they're responsive as hell for all mountain.
