I have the cartels now and indeed, they are stiff! thinking about sending them back and get the customs..
I also received my Burton Hero and it's a flexible board so it's maybe not so logical to put the stiffy cartels on it... (like you guys said)

My rome boots (libertines) are also loose/flexibe so it's stupid, right?

What is your basis for saying that?

I didn't test them on snow but just screwed them on my board...
It's true that i don't really have a basis to say that.. they just feel stiff but i don't know if that's good or bad.. have to test it first i think.

It's a Womens Burton Feelgood 140cm with C60 bindings on it. That's a board designed for a 105 pound girl, with bindings designed for a 170 pound man. It obviously "worked" for her but you can't tell me that it was anywhere close to ideal.

It's like putting race tires on a pinto. Sure you CAN do it, but you've past the point of diminishing gains long ago.

It DOES make sense to try to match your gear.
First off, feelgood isn't a soft board, more in the middle and if its the cambered version I can see the argument for stiff bindings, fits with camber more so than rockered.

I could easily see that being an ideal setup for an aggressive advanced female rider, it's a poor example of mismatched gear. Super stiff boots or bindings matched to a pure park board might now be the best match.

I run c60's on both my boards so I have consistent feel, one less variable to worry about. One board is a Sherlock and it works fine.

Yes Marijn, I can tell from thousands of miles away what you really need is some snow and to take this stuff you bought and ride it. Lots of us are going crazy waiting for snow. You have great setup have lots of fun with it.

Hm, i'm reading some comments from other guys/shops and i'm afraid they ARE too stiff for the board and i don't get 100% out of it with the cartels..
I'm thinking to order the customs, because i have only 2 weeks to send the Cartels back.. difficult! aaaa

Those cartels are sick do it all bindings. Any shortcoming they have is surely rider induced.

You should send them back for sure.

Unless you are on the pro level, but then you wouldn't be considering the advice of a bunch of keyboard jockeys then would you.

haha yea, those are sick bindings! I mean sure if you want to send them back for a lower end pair...unless you are pulling off video level jib shit and know better, those things are going to do great for you.

Hey all,
I went 3 days to Val Thorens with my new complete board, and i love it.
the only thing is i have only a few rachets to click on the straps, so they are OK but i really have to make sure that they are tight enough.

I found out turning was not so easy, i really have to be a bit agressive (because my low weight i think).
What can i do about that? My stance is in the middle of the board & the angles are the standard 15 & 9.

Thanks!
