Default Burton Prophecy vs. Cartel vs. Rome Targa

Looking at getting one of the 3. What can you guys tell me in terms of performance and comfort. I am an advanced rider...not expert, who likes the slack country and wants a binding that I can wear ripping down a groomer or killing it in the trees.
Thanks!

All are quality and can't go wrong with any... are we talking all 2012 models?

If I had the choice i'd say Prophecy for the asym ankle strap which i find amazing and the amazing cushion and lightweight of the reflex baseplates, which i think the cartel has also.

Also find the burton ratchets better, as the rome ones are too easy to undo by accident.

Romes are still very nice...

union forces suck by the way.

Yes...I am talking about the 2012 models. My only concern was the stiffness of the prophecy. I ride a banana magic and want a good responsive binding to match the board. I also really liked the feel of the EST Channel system and am trying to replicate that with these bindings. Any thoughts?

Malavita's should match up perfect. Just don't waste your money on unions.

I'm probably going to be rocking '12 Malavita reflex on two of my setups.

Malavita is a nice setup? I never even considered them. I have heard they are primarily a park binding. How stiff and responsive are they compared to the Prophecy and Cartel?

Bit softer than both.

If you are going to be bombing it, I'd go Cartel or Targa, depending on if you like the feel of V-Rod or not.

Probably not going to bomb it too much. I think something a touch more mellow than the Cartel and a bit more responsive then the Malavita might be just right. Sounds like the Prophecy might be a good call. How does the TArga feel in terms of board flex, feel? I have heard the Re-Flex of burton is as close the the EST feel as you can get.

I rock cartels (10-11) and I don't find them too stiff. I do ride pretty hard most of the time, but you can ride chill or freestlye in them no problem. I find them to be pretty well rounded so you can do most things on them. Not park focused of course but fine for occasional trips through the park.
