i get that. cartels and missions have the same 30% short-glass/nylon mix in their baseplates.... that's all I meant. They have for years. Whether its in the re-flex or non re-flex... they still have the same blend of materials. I feel ya though about re:flex riding differently than a traditional disk binding.

get the Reflex Restricted Cartel, i have those on my Hero and i like them a lot. they are great for everything. i had ESTs before and i like the Reflexs better and plus bindings usually last longer than the board, so i dont have to get another burton ICS board later on.

ahh i wasn't sure what you meant by 'blend'. i snapped the back part of the base plate on the cartel reflex. the shop gave me the missions to use until burton sends me the warranty pair. i like the re-flex better than the solid baseplate but apparently it has some weak spots whereas the other one doesn't. i'd rather have the reflex just the same.

Thanks for all the help again! I'll try to get the Restricted Reflex Cartels, but it depends on what shops have what. I do have a restricted dealer, though.

Definitely the Cartel. I had the Mission, didn't like it much.

have you looked into the malavitas? I like them a lot and the strap feels awesome, heel hammock and the hinge is a plus, check them out. If you got a sherlock just make sure to stay with set.

i just came back from the mnt so i'll give you my 2cents about the forces while its still fresh in my mind:
1. really good bindings,kinda really fit that all mnt mold but i think everybody is aware of that,
2.toe cap works just fine you just need to set it up correctly,and the bindings offers all the setting you would want.
only con i have on them is the way they are maid...the plastic is good and what not..but its like they are not build to last even dough everybody says its their strong point...and before you take this the wrong way i will explain my self:
screws get loose all to easy for my liking almost lost a toe cap at the top of the mnt was so pissed off..
when you try to tighten the screws for example for the upper strap then you cant move the strap or the highback,and while you are moving is its automatically unscrewing it self...

but this all can be fixed....you just have to loose the small circle plate that goes before the screw and the problem is solved,also the screws should not be serrated all they to the head...those are the only things that i dont get why they couldnt spend a little more time on and really build built proof bindings...
so while you work out all this little kinks you get one hellova binding in my opinion..hope i helped and made any sense while explaining
