Looking for bindings with lots of forward lean

I am looking for super stiff bindings with option for lots and lots and lots of forward lean.

I ride a pair of Burton Mission's and cranked the FL to its maximum setting but want more FL and stiffness. Any suggestions?

Burton Cartels are notorious for their uncomfortable highback lean forward. A lot more responsive than the Missions as well.

I've got cartel est's, and I barely added anything to the FL. If you max it out, you'd be hard pressed to find anything with more Fl. 'Cept metal, I suppose.

Edit: p.s... I wouldn't wish missions on my worst enemy. Get something better.

The only reason I stay with burton bindings is because they have the best forward lean adjustment.

K2's evers have a lot of forward lean as well but the adjustment on them kind of sucks.

Cartels or CO2's. I have very little forward lean on my CO2s and have to kinda step backwards and down to get my boot to interface well with the heel cup as there is a fair bit of natural forward lean on them.

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.
