Default Burton Diode or Cartel est

Hey guys,

I recently purchased new burton 2013 mystery 158 and was wondering if i would be worth upgrading by current 2011 cartel est restricted edition to the new burton 2013 diodes?

thx

Maybe genesis? If you're obsessed with weight then diodes are lightest but very stiff. I think that people who prefer stiff bindings are specific in their need. If you want a really good binding with the new hinge tech genesis has it too.

For what specific reason would a person need stiff bindings?

Stiff bindings are very responsive and precise, good for carving and aggressive, fast riding. Soft bindings are more flexible, and more forgiving.

With the methlon base of the mystery i expect that it would be quite fast, at least faster than my custom flying v. So maybe the diodes would be a good way to go to allow me more control at higher speeds.
