Regardless, I would go with the Cartel ltd (after reading up on it)... it has autocant, and the same straps as the genesis but a stiffer highback. It's really a deal compared to the genesis which is like 80 dollars more for a funky, less responsive highback.
the cartel base is slightly stiffer than the genesis base, if you're splitting hairs. The cartel ltd base is the same as the genesis base. I couldn't tell the difference, apart from the weight.
Not sure if you can say the cartel ltd has a stiffer highback than the genesis, and def sure that, while it is funky, the genesis highback is def not less responsive.
