Having ridden both I vote the Targas without a doubt, I HATED the cartels, they were uncomfortable I hate burtons toecaps, there ratchet system sux(well it did the last time I rode a burton binding 2 yrs ago and that Will be the last time I ride one lol) and the cartels foward lean is just Retarted.
Yes the targas can ge adjustable from semi flexy to moderatly stiff, IMO one of the best bindings out there, for someone who wants to do it all.
BUT........... they do have compatibility problems with boots, I have worn 4 or 5 different boots with my targas, and most of them just ... dont seem... to line up 100%. some boots are worse then other my old k2 boots were too wide for the binding anyime I would do a press or lean back at all the front right "soul"/bottom of the boot would pop up and sit on the side of the binding, it was a huge pain, luckly I needed boots and replaced them, the boots I have now the dc judges actually seem to narrow for the binding so after I tighten them about 40% of the time I have to stop mid run after they worked themselves into the "right" spot and I have to tighten the bindings 2-3 more clicks.
my opinion if you have a local store bring your boot in and make sure they fit first. because If they do fit , GET THEM!!!
