I ride 09 cartels with prolly 50+ days on them. Never had anything snap or break or problems with wratchets, and I do a lot of pressing. Mostly a park rider who loves utilizing the entire mtn to show off so I definitely get in my fair share of free riding. Very responsive. The only thing I could say is the ankly strap hits a mean pressure point on the lift if I let my board hang too long. If I need to hang it the whole way i just pop the wratchet back a couple clicks and I'm fine for the whole ride. I love my cartels to be honest. The little metal decals on the sides started pealing back at one point but it was nothing a little super glue couldn't fix. I like the forward lean truthfully. I play soccer so my quads are ripped as is, never really had a problem with quad burn and I dont take many breaks other than at the top of the park. Dont have experience with the targas so take my opinion for what its worth.

And i gotta call bs on whoever said targas look better. They're way too busy and that rust color looks like it dropped out of someones...
