cwilson, I thought about filing down the ridges, but why does one need to spend $250+ on bindings and resort to altering them? The most recent email I again received from Burton was that they told me they could send me another high back but since they were used they could not set up a return, which is understandable. The Burton Missions also have the high back ridge, but my question is why is the ridge there if some of their other high end bindings like the Malavita, Genesis, and Diode do not have it?! I know those bindings have their heel hammock, but still...if it serves a purpose?! I love the Cartels and functionality isn't an issue, It's the fact that they will eat your $200+ boots!
