Red face Help me find bindings

Hey,

My setup right now is a 06 Burton Custom with 06 Mission bindings

I'm looking to get a stiffer pair of bindings.

I was looking at Burton Cartels, Rome 390 Boss.
I'm worried the Cartels for '13 are to soft. The 390s I have never really seen.


I'm not really sure what I want.

I really don't do to much park. I do all mountain but I am thinking about getting into park.

If you have any other suggestions please throw them out.

Thank you all, I'm kind of a beginner.

May I humbly suggest that if you are a beginner you ride a little more and get yourself to where you can confidently do some intermediate riding. Only because just upgrading bindings for you at this level probably wont do much.

Unless you already have an upgrade plan for your board as well?

Anyway theres some suggestions for ya.

Honestly I call my self a beginner cause I don't ride enough.
But I can ride. I just don't do it that often because of time and where I'm located.

Also, I'm a downhill longboader and surfer, I'm kind of use to being on boards.

No worries you said beginner, I just thought it seemed interesting that you just wanted to upgrade bindings, but I spose if the board is in good shape and works for you, you for sure will find extra response from those other bindings I listed. I think of beginner as someone who can barely link turns

I'm probably one of the sketchest riders cause 90% of what I do on a snowboard comes from my dh longboarding background

I went from the missions to the cartels about 3 years ago. The cartels are a great binding!

Yea I have a pair of '12 'Vitas I'm really enjoying and plan to put on my evo. Cartels are super nice as well. I just didn't suggest them because they arent very "stiffer" bindings.

What are the benefits of each?

I know its personal opinion.

But anyone way in on the Boss 309 and Cartels?
