It's the same glass content in the base, both ReFlex, and the highback on the Cartel is noticeably softer. In fact I'm actually really looking forward to riding it as I have high hopes for it as a park dominating binding. Return of the park Cartel!

And I wasn't really too fond of last years highback really. It wasn't bad and did its job, but nothing more. It wouldn't mush when I pushed into it, but it also never really snapped me through turns like others have. And if you go 2012, definitely get the Asym. Its better than the standard.
Thanks Nivek! I have last years restricted and was/am interested in your thoughts.
