Default 2012 GNU Mutant switch with 2011 Cartels???

So this year I went out and got a whole new setup, and with advise from the board I picked up a 159 Lib tech TRS and GNU Mutants. Most people on here weren't sure about the bindings, and after riding them for 6 days I am starting to think I made a $250 mistake. The good thing is that last year my bindings of 10+ years broke and I bought 2011 Cartels at the base of my mountain and still have them to put on my new TRS.

Is this a good idea? I feel like I have the GNU's setup wrong and at the end of the day I am not sure they are that much faster strapping in?

Also, how can I tell if the GNU's are setup properly? I am the kind of person that just straps in and rides (very little park) and have been doing so for 16+ years...so I am not even sure how the response on turning is suppose to feel. All I do know is that something doesn't feel right and it is starting to become noticeable while riding.

Thanks in advance for any and all comments...the good, the bad, and the ugly!
