The Cartels are definitely worth the extra cash.

Man, I've never heard of Bluewood before! I live in the Seattle area and ride Stevens, but spent a few years in Spokane for college riding Schweitzer and Mt Spokane.

I agree with DrnknZag

Cartels, Targas & SF45s should all pair well with this deck. I basically bought the Cartels because that was the set of bindings on the list that first became stocked in my local shop.. and I didn't want to miss a ride day on account of not having bindings.

Notwithstanding your stated desire to have a toe strap, I'll just throw in my two cents from out in left field. I ride the T. Rice Pro with Flow NXT-FSEs and its the best set-up i've ever had. If you want a stiffer Flow option, it'd be the NXT-FRX. Comfort is unparalleled and only purported shortcoming of Flows that i'd confirm is that they're a tiny bit soft heel to toe and so not optimal for Park riding - which doesn't look like an issue for you since you ride, like me, a limited amount in the park.

I have a pair a flows. They are a bit older. But the clip in the back started to get lose and uncliping by its self. Idk about the new ones never rode them.

For what its worth: I did quite a bit of research, much of it here in the forum (which i'm sure you can also find with searches) and it would appear Flow pretty significantly upgraded the quality of their bindings in the last few years, particularly the higher end ones. So previous issues may not be issues any more. I ride often and pretty hard and have had no breakage (though they're not real old yet, obviously.)

Crazy, that's my same combo and I concur (T.Rice 157 Flow NXT-FSE ) works perfectly together... I had some FRX's and they're just too stiff, sold them to a bud! I live in Clarkston WA so I'm about 1.5 hrs from Bluewood... ridden there many times but I'd rather spend a little more time driving and go to Shweitzer or Silver or especially Brundage (where I have my pass)... not saying Bluewood sucks...

I am rocking my T Rice with Union Forces. Good all around bulletproof binding for $200. I ride trees and steeps for the most part, not really a park rider drop small cliffs, hit wind lips, ect and have been loving the combination so far.

As far as a toe cap goes though they have a hybrid system that can be a strap or a cap. Never really rocked them as toe caps but I will go mess around with it right now and post back in a few

EDIT: Just checked it out they slide off my my 14's pretty easy (Damn my big feet) but i threw in my buddies 12's and it held really well. I could not get it to slide off like I did with my boots. Maybe someone else who rides them regularly as a toe cap can chime in.
