Haven't bought bindings in years

I'm looking for some new bindings and have had trouble finding lots of good reviews out there so I thought I would come here and ask what you guys think. I want Burton Cartels, don't wanna pay the price though. So I'm thinking about maybe getting the Missions. I'm only looking into those for now because a few of my friends have them. I know the Cartels are pretty nice bindings and I would be willing to shell out the money for them. I want some other suggestions however because maybe there are some very nice bindings out there that aren't as expensive that I'm not aware of.

I do around 30 to 40 percent park and trees, groomers, back country etc the rest of the time. I wear about a 10.5 so I know I need a large and I'm riding a 2011 Never Summer SL.

Thanks in advance.

Putting Missions on a board like the NS SL? I'm sure you are committing some type of snowboarding sin there.

How about:

Ride Contraband Snowboard Bindings 2010

I'd take these over Missions and Cartels personally
Burton Cobrashark Snowboard Bindings 2011

These will be great for your riding outside the park. You can also adjust the flex of the ankle strap on the fly for those park runs in between
Ride SPI Mens Snowboard Bindings 2011

We don't have this next suggestion in Large, but you should look around for it as it will be a really good binding for you:

Ride Delta

Those Cobrasharks would probably do just fine on the rest of the mountain right? I like those the most right now because of their price.

They are all-mountain freestyle type bindings. It's pretty middle of the road flex so it's great for people who dabble in all aspects of snowboarding. I mean, if you do a ton of pow sniffing freeriding, stiffer bindings are better.
