Both are right around the $200 mark with the Cartels being a bit more, but my local shop is willing to do $200 on them so it's an equal game. Both have similar features that I like and seem very comfortable and sturdy.
I'm basically torn and was hoping someone could point me in either direction!
If you haven't already, you should take your boots in and see how your boots fit in each binding. Test out the toe strap on the unions. Also, the 2012 cartel only comes in re:flex, so that might be something you would like to try. They are both mid-flex do it all bindings. If I were you I would prob. buy the cartels cause I haven't tried re:flex bindings yet. But its hard to go wrong here IMO, my forces have been great bindings, as were my 09 cartels.
