Burton cartel's vs. Rome 390's

I had posted a thread earlier on what bindings I should get for my new Flow Quantum. I am mainly looking to do mountain free riding and some park. I am 170 pounds and the board size is 155cm and I'm not sure what my boot size is since the last time I went I rented. But I wear a size 11 shoe US. There were several choices of bindings based on these specs but based mainly off price I am trying to choose between the burton cartels and the Rome 390 bosses both 2012 models I believe. So if any of you have any experience with any of the 2 or both please let me know. Thanks in advanced!!

Hey Nickshake

If you're looking for a binding that can do everything, the 390 Boss is a solid choice. Tons of adjustments if you like to tinker with your settings and get everything dialed - toe and heel ramps, highback rotation, strap lengths and placement, and heel hoop sizing. Plus the addition of the Yes I Cant system to cant your stance, which provides extra control over the nose and tail, and a more comfortable, anatomically correct angle for your knees especially at wide stances.

Any other questions just let us know, hope that helps.

I've owned both and either one will do all of that. Honestly, you can't go wrong either way.
