Anyways, you're right about the internet. Luckily, I don't have to convince you of anything.
Where did I say they were getting softer EVERY year? They are softer than I've ever seen BEFORE. Up until this year they had actually been getting steadily stiffer.

Why does it matter if its me telling you this cause I rode both, or talking to my fellow employee who OWNS both and being told the new ones are softer?

Would it be more convincing if he was on here telling you?

sorry, I misread your 'cartels are softer than ever' for 'cartels have been getting softer'.

Anyways, we are saying the same thing.

Thanks for the tips guys..

I think im gonna have a hard time getting my hand on some c60's, but how stiff are they.. ??.. dont think i want like rock hard bindings !! ^^..

Anyone tried the regio love Ltd or 2014 Ltd? That can tell me if they feel stiffer than the current years ?.. They have the same flex rating as far as i can see..

/Cheers form Denmark :-D

They're quite stiff and responsive. One of the stiffest out there as far as I know. I ride them often, and I have for the past 3 seasons. I can still butter, jump, etc. on them so it's not like having you legs welded to the board. But when I want to rail a turn they are VERY good at telling me exactly what the edge is doing.

That's why I think they'd be a good match for the camber Custom X. It's a stiff camber board designed for hard charging, and these are the bindings to match.

Not to say that other options won't work, but in the Burton EST lineup it'd be the one to get for hard charging.

What size boots do you wear? I'll have a look and see what I can find for the C60s.

Had a tough time finding C60's... Found some C02's though which are slightly less stiff, still supposed to be a bloody good binding though I've never tried them myself.

They ship to Europe:

BAH! My girlfriend rides camber, she knows better than most of you!

I've got C60 EST bindings, it's tough finding non-EST C60s in medium brand new. Next to impossible actually.

Not for you, for Snoopy. The world doesn't revolve around putin, and we know you already have them. It's his thread, we're trying to find bindings (and maybe a girlfriend) for him.
