Bind Me Up Buttercup

So I bought Angry's Proto CT (FUCK YEEEAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!) and want to pick up some new binders for her (or just in general really). I am currently riding '10 Cartels on my Skate Banana. I have no problem with them in any way. That is to say, I really really like them!! I mean they feel relatively heavy but with that - durable and responsive. They are quite stiff and I'm not sure if my next binders should be more flexy for contrast (for park/ground tricks/butering about) or whether coming from a stiff background (yes it sounds like I'm talking about boners) would make me not like less responsive bindings.....???

Looking at:

Rome 390 Boss
Rome 390
Rome Arsenal
Rome Targa (Beginning to see a pattern here)
....maybe those step in K2s....posssibly....
Burton Cartel Reflex
Something from Flux
So loads basically.....

I am thinking Rome basically cause all you guys rave - and to be fair you probably know what you are talking about. Got to try the Targas and 390's on a few runs indoors (honestly couldn't tell the difference in the Snowdome but like the feel of them. Also tried some TT30's in Sweden which did feel noticeabley "comfortable".

Wouldnt mind swapping the Cartels to the Proto and finding something for my SB(/Evo/Draft if I can pick one up) but just want your thoughts and suggestions really.


If it's a real goose, is it propaganda?

When I tried the Proto out a couple months ago the only bindings I had to try it with were the Flux SF45's. I was reluctant to put a stiff binding on it but it really amazed me at how the combination worked. I would try and see how the cartels work on the Proto before going out to buy any new bindings, you may like the combo and save yourself the cash.

If you really want to pick up another pair of bindings, go for the 390s, TT30s or DS45s since Targa's would essentially be the same as the cartels.

Go the 390's or something from Flux. I think the DS45s may be a little more appropriate for the Proto than the TT30s. Or, you could save a bunch and just put your Cartels on there. All are nice bindings in there own right.
