Default Worth upgrading from Burton Custom bindings on Jones Mountain Twin?

Been using Customs on an old Burton Elite board, about to pick up a Jones Mtn Twin (2013/2014) and wondering if it is worth upgrading the bindings.

People say the Cartels are a good binding for the board -- noticeably better?

Thanks

Definitely.

Cartels, Union Forces, Flux TT30s, Rome 390s, etc. would all work well. I'd go with the TT30s personally with the Cartels as the backup plan.

I'd say it's worth it. I'm not saying customs are a poor binding by any means but the Cartels are just much better. You get much more comfortable ankle/toe straps, auto can't footbeds, stiffer highjacks etc. I think the stiffer setup would suit an all mountain board like the mountain twin better than that which the customs can provide.

I use the Cartels and Genesis' and they're both great. Can't really fault either of them.

Flux TT same as Flux TT30?

They don't seem to be very popular (based on # of reviews, etc.)

Went with the Rome 390 BOSS as they were $10 cheaper than Cartels and everyone seems to think they're higher quality. We'll see!

So, TTs are shit and Rome 390 build quality > Cartel build quality? LOL! Where in the hell are you finding these reviews? A lot of people really like Rome bindings, but there's probably been more threads on here about quality issues on Rome bindings than all other binding manufacturers combined.

Sorry, said that the TTs didn't seem very popular as they don't have many reviews out (good or bad)

And yeah, saw some ppl with quality issues from the Romes but lotta people say they're better feeling than the plastic cartels. And supposedly more comfy.

I don't really know what I'm doing tho -- would you take cartels over 390 bosses?
