I've narrowed my binding search down to Burton Cartels, Missions, and Union Forces. I ride mostly everything, with a focus on park and trees. I'm 5' 7'', 140 lbs, and size 11 boot if that matters. My board is a Burton Sherlock; so I'm looking for mid-flex. Which should I get?
I'd say the Cartel's are more similar in flex and response to the Union Atlas. It really comes down to riding style. The force will have a little more of a mid flex. I've always enjoyed the Force on my park board. The Cartels felt a little more bulky. But it is all personal preference. It sucks that you can't try before you buy.
i have agent orange cartels, warhol missions, and 2012 union forces...the cartels are 2009's and the blow the forces out of the water...better toe cap, better high back, and a really solid build. they also have less abuse and scratches over 3 years than the forces over 15 days
