Rome Targas or Burton Cartels EST for Burton Sherlock

Hey guys so I decided to go with Burton Sherlock which I'll be picking up tomorrow. I am having trouble figuring out what bindings would be best for me. This will be my all mountain/powder stick. Does the EST feature on the Cartels have a benefit to them or is it just a way for Burton to make more money? Which binding would be best for me?

-Thanks

Burton binding never gave me any trouble. If its an est board with the channel, go for the est binding dude.

I have some targas. Overall great binding, but the quick release to adjust them is really retarded. My toe strap keeps falling off, and the other in the shop to exchange are just as weak and will open easily. Doesn't make me feel very safe...

Definitely get the ESTs, different bindings on the channel kills the whole purpose of it. with the cartel ESTs you will get better board flex, feel, and dampening compared to other bindings on the channel.

EST. But I would get Missions or Malavitas. Cartels are now annoyingly stiff.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Cartels are stiff but good for freeriding, missions are similar, but slightl softer, and malavitas have pretty good response but are geared towards park so whichever riding style you want, any could be good.

Hmmm... I think I'll go with missions then if they're just a little bit softer.

Missions have a reputation of being lower end shit bindings dude. My money would be on the Cartels. The Sherlock is an amazing all-mountain board and the Cartel is an amazing all-mountain binding. I don't think it's going to be too stiff for you. Burton's stiff bindings are the Co2 and the C60. Cartels you can still ride park

I'd definitely steer clear of the Missions in general, especially for an all-mountain/pow board. I've owned all three, Missions, Cartels, and Targas. I rode the Cartels for three seasons on my all-mountain stick. My only gripe is the ratchets kept breaking. The Targas are my current all-mountain binding and I LOVE them. So comfortable and very adjustable. My only complaint is the highback adjustment lock sometimes opens up on it's own.

If you want the EST adjustability, get the Cartels. Otherwise, I'd get a pair of the Targas.
