I'm 185 so a little stiffer binding isn't really a hindrance for jibbing for me. I actually prefer the feel of the force over the contact simply because I find the contact to flexible. If I was 20-40 lbs lighter, maybe a more flexible jib binding would be better. So it really is relative to a lot of things.

I would recommend the Contact or Contact Pro over the flight because the 3D strap is much more comfortable and responsive than the basic straps on the Flight.

Also, would Rome 390 Bosses be any good for jibbing setups? Any other suggestions are really appreciated. Thank you!

Flux RK 30



or possibly the Burton Malavita's ????

aubzobot I just picked up some contact pro's the other day, lot's of cushioning and they have lot's of flex. I would definitely recommend them.

Inlay So it looks like the Union Flite, Contact Pro, and Contacts are my choices. I just need to figure which one is best for jibs..

Yea, I was planning on getting suggestions on what bindings and then going into the boardshop with my boots.

Yup I bought my boots like two weeks ago. And did you mean you haven't heard a lot about the 390? Those are actually the bindings I'm using right now, but they're 2009.
