Ride Delta vs Burton Cartels

I just scored a 152 Skate Banana and currently am using my old cartels from 2006 but one of my highback cracked and it's verrry soft after years of use so I'm in the market for new bindings. I admit I want something different so I'm leaning toward the Ride Delta (plus I want to give aluminum bindings a try) but how do they stack up against the Cartels?

I'll be using the Skate Banana as a all-mountain freestyle board of sorts. I could be doing killer tree runs one day, then groomed snow next, then a few rails and kickers here and there. So in your humble opinion, which bindings would fit me best?

The ride delta(last years betas) are IMO one of the best all mountain freestyle bindings out there. Last year, paired up with my GNU Riders Choice, I was huckin cliffs and dropping into chutes with them, and still able to take them into the park at the end of the day

I recently got a set of the Delta MVMNT's to try out. I have only put 1 day on them on my Indoor Survival FK. They were nice though.

I was really thinking this years Delta MVMNT would be softer but it's not. The ankle strap is only ok but the toe strap rocks. Overall it was fairly stiff and responsive for a "freestyle" binding IMO. Definitely all mtn/free. Ratchets are better then prior Ride ones but crank the straps to much and they are a bitch to release. The highback was noticeably stiffer then the 390. The 390's spoil me in the comfort factor. The Delta MVMNT and 390 are the only bindings I have had on this board for comparison.

I really like the footbeds and the whole "wedgie" setup though. I am definitely going to throw them on something to ride them more. I like a pretty soft binding so for me they may go on my Premier. I almost want to try the Contraband again now that they have the wedgie etc...
