Tough decisions there OP. All three are very good bindings suited to that board, and all looked damned nice too.
I have been pondering these three also, as replacements for my CO2s on my SL, which I am kinda finding are a little to stiff for my liking and for the board. I have been thinking about the cartels and the malavitas more than the romes though, only because I have a boner for Burton. Im just not to sure as to which I would want, I think the Malavitas are a slightly higher tech over the cartels, but its pretty even.
Really, I think either of the three would be fine for you. I would go try them all on with your boot, and go with; what ever is the most comfortable, what ever fits your boot the best, what ever you can get the best discount on, or what ever looks nicest (in that order).
