I don't know. Do you think Malavitas are better with this board and my riding style than Cartels? I saw some reviews, both looks good. Just I already had Cartels, but haven't tried Malavitas and have no opportunity to demo.
Cartels are more do it all type bindings from what I've seen. The malavitas which I have used, are a little softer, but not too soft. The board you are using is pretty damn soft from everything I've just read (I'm looking into buying a jib/butter stick). I think the malavitas are a better matchup flex wise.
And you don't have to look for restricteds to get the asym strap.
Everyone loves the asym strap. Do it.
