CO2 vs C60 on an 07' Supermodel X

Hey all, I have a supermodel x, Burton moto boots and triad bindings right now. I'm looking for more control over my board as of now... I can see that the bases of my triads flex a whole bunch (wasted movement/control).

Because the end link is the binding, and a stiffer boot would only limit my ankle movement, I feel as if a stiffer binding would help transmit inputs better to the board. (aren't the triads a co2 upper and mission base anyways?) as far as I know, the c60's are stiffer...but by how much? And will I even notice the difference between my setup and co2's? (again, because the only difference is the triads have a cartel base and co2 upper...)

Is my theory correct? If so, what would be a better pick? I do a bit of kickers, little pow, and love to just make long, sweeping carves down the mountain (love carving...looking into getting a freecarve board someday).

I had C60s until they were lost and replaced them with C02s. There may be slight weight savings due to the use of carbon but I can't notice a difference riding. Mesh backing may even help with boot conformity.

So I found a pair of c60 in my price range.... Problem is I'm a size 9 and they are larges. Will they work??

I REALLY want these bindings.



I figured by waiting 2-3 years, finding a pair would be easy... Guess not. Can anyone point me in the right drxn? I've done eBay, went to the stores, craigslist, etc....

Dont buy the oversized bindings!! I had L Cartels from 2006 and a size 9 boot. The straps would not fit me properly and gave me horrible foot pain when my boot slid to the outside of the biniding. I just bought mediums this week and they feel much better.
