Default Rome Targa vs. Burton Cartel....FIGHT!

I just bought a Lib-Tech Dark Series C2 BTX. I am trying to decide between Rome Targa and Burton Cartel bindings. Both are discounted at $175 and $183 respectively. Which should I chose? May the best binding win!

What's there to think about? Targas win by far in my opinion. This isn't the case for everyone, but I tested two 2011 Burton Cartels and both times one of the toe straps came undone. And both times it was on my rear foot. And both times, I was doing a lot of tail presses. Just saying...

I've been using my Targas for a month now, and I can say they are worth every penny! A fully customizable binding! and they look better too.

targas for sure, just so you don't have to run a ridiculous amount of forward lean.

Vote for the Cartels.

Never once have I had the straps come lose when riding. I will admit I don't do as many tail presses as Leo probably does though, but I do love to tail butter a lot.

Cushy foot bed, adjustable toe ramp and very few screws to come loose. In fact haven't had one screw come lose in over thirty days of riding and I check them every other ride.

My only concern with the Targas is how they will interact with other boots. I am partial to Burton boots, since they are what I am used to. Therefore, if I end up buying Burton boots again, I am concerned that the Targas will not interact as well with a Burton boot as a Burton binding would.

I wouldn't worry about the boot binding interaction. If you don't have sasquatch feet like I do you will be fine. I vote for the targas as well.

I vote for the Targas....very versatile bindings. They have those inserts to make the binding more stiff or more flexy. They are all around mountain bindings. My BF has them and absolutely loves them


Cartels.......my friend has a pair and he was always complaining that his quads got super tired pretty early in the day from that forward lean. He actually sold those and got the targas...
