Light freestyle bindings

Thanks to all those who helped me pick out my new rockered weapon. i absolutely love it. the only problem now is that once i put my old burton cartels on i realized that it was heavy as hell, mainly due to the cartels. im now interested in purchasing some light freestyle bindings. i have been looking at the ride contrabands but i have read mixed reviews. i have also looked at forum contacts. im looking for some advice from those that have ridden them and other park oriented bindings.

hey man, you were the one who pm'ed me right? I am glad you love it. As for bindings.

union contact are light as hell with nice flex. Also check out the burton lo backs. They feel great in the park with no foward lean. Hope this helps.

funny thing is my friend picked up a ltd editon weapon the day after he rode mine.

I had Rome Targas on my setup and they are not the lightest bindings out there, I just put K2 Auto Evers on my boad and they are insanely light compared to most bindings Ive tried
