Default Burton Cartel/Mission VS Rome 390

Hey guys,
I'm stuck between the Burton Cartel bindings, mission bindings, and rome 390 bindings.
I'll be riding them on a Capita Horrorscope 152...
I ride all mountain freestyle including park, not pipe, intermediate/advanced.
Which would be better? they're all pretty much the same cost (200 AUD)

Thanks,
Stu.

I have two pairs of Cartels and like them a lot, I didn't care much for the Missions. I've heard good things about the 390s but haven't tried them.

Union Force or the 390's no doubt....

390's are insanely comfortable and soft flexing.

Forces are bulletproof, pretty comfy, and middle ground soft so you can get away with doing anything on them.

Burton Cartels are an alright binding but I personally prefer to support other companies. Imo people who prefer to just eat what they're fed instead of doing their own research, end up with Cartels or another low quality Burton binding.

I ride Cartels. I ride them because I got them used and it's what I could afford. I didn't get them because they were Burton. I bought them after seeing how well they were still holding up after being ridden hard for a few seasons. I'm glad I bought them because they are still holding up and I may need to ride them for one more season before I can replace them. Not everyone buys the big B for the name alone. To the OP, do your research, then go to a shop and see if you can compare them in person. Ultimately, the decision is yours to make. Buy what you like the most.

Can't dog someone for getting a good deal.

A thing about Burton... They do know how to make products feel very good right off the bat. But with that, it seems their products wear pre maturely as well. I'm not saying 100% of the Burton line is this way however... And I will say the Cartels are one of the best things that Burton makes period.

So I don't agree with you that you just go into a shop and get what feels best. That's kinda like going in and buying an american car because it looks the best. Because they usually do, because americans care about that to much. If you can go here like you did, get some advice, you will narrow down your search within a higher quality of product.

All I'm saying is you can't always trust something by it's initial feel. Sometimes you can, sometimes you can't...... And in the snowboard industry Burton is a company that knows how to make their product feel perfect right off the bat, but Burton does not make the best of many/anything in the snowboard industry.

Really? Because when I got some Cartels (back in '06) a few years ago, I actually researched what I wanted from a binding and they were the closest to what I wanted, being a med/stiff flex, toe cap and readily available in NZ. But thank you for pigeon holing me...

I never said Cartels were a shit binding

And sitting back and doing your research online doesn't always yield the best results. Actually spending time on the binding can change everything.

Again I never said the Cartel was shit, but I do believe theirs better bindings.

Actually just gave the Cartel a compliment of sorts by saying they're one of the best things Burton makes.

And you're in NZ Fattrav.... You don't have the same options available to you use other countries, and I don't know your options. Therefore I can't speak to heavily for you.

I'm in Australia so I'm sort of in the same boat.. maybe not as bad though..
Anyway I think I'll be getting the 390s, thanks guys. I've got a great deal on them (170 AUD incl. shipping) so I really can't refuse.

Thanks guys!
