I honestly love my EXs (minus the problems everybody has with their ratchets).

I don't care too much about aluminum vs. plastic but I do, very much, like the "wedgie" canting that Ride bindings have.

Is the Burton (Cartels or Malavitas) "auto cant" similar to the Ride "wedgies"? The canting definitely made a difference in my comfort last season.

I've ridden the Ride SPIs which had the 2.5 canting (less than half a season if anyone wants to buy 'em) but found them too responsive for my not-terribly-great skill level.

I think the sweet spot in terms of responsiveness would be between the EX and the SPIs.

Any thoughts in that regard?
