I already have both, and won't be buying another binding, so please keep it to those two.

I got the Malavitas on recommendation from two local shop guys (different shops btw). But I'm concerned that they won't be as responsive as the Cartels, assuming that some of what I've read online is accurate.

Riding is all mountain freestyle on groomers and inbound trails.
If it helps, I was out yesterday for the first time on my TRice Pro with Diodes and DC Status boots. Once I got used to the stiffness of that setup, I really liked the overall responsiveness. I don't think I want to go back to a much softer setup on the Banana Magic.

Thanks for any help!
Switch them back and forth, see what you like. These comparison questions are more useful prior to buying. You have the luxury of forming your own view.
