I'll swear by my Cartels. In my 15+ years of snowboarding my 2010 Cartel EST (don't knock this until you try it) are probably one of the best feelings underfoot I've ever had.

I have some 09 Cartels and I think they are great minus one thing ..... the damned toe cap comes up/off the front boot after a while. Its a problem in a lot of bindings, not just Cartels though. Still, if it weren't for that I would have no complaints. They are just the right amount of stiffness to do all types of riding and plenty light. I usually keep 2 types of bindings around and the Cartels are my default. Of course, I didn't pay beginning of the year price on them either Now if I could find a way to make the toe cap a little more reliable ...
