It says theses are medium/stiff, and says the forces are just medium but aren't the Contact pros supposed to be softer then the forces? Which do you recommend for a mostly rail and jib board that I'll use on under 40' jumps and blasting around the mountain ever once and a while. And burton hails be a good match?

No no no, the Contacts are softer. The Contact Pros are going to be much stiffer.
It depends on the kind of board. If your board is a flexier board, then you'll need the stability that the stiff Contact Pros offer. I ride a Reverse Camber board so I'd be getting these BECAUSE my board is so flexy. If you rep a regular-ass camber board, then get the contacts, because that offers a bit more forgiveness.
Don't get the forces if you're mostly jibbing. They're more of an all-mountain killer.
Boot match is irrelevant. If you like the burton hails, and they're comfy, just get them. Matching setups are so overrated. Whats better is if you just love all your gear as individual pieces. Together, they'll be a SICK-ASS ride, no matter how the colour scheme looks.
