Cartels, 390 Boss, Union Atlas.
 
I'm look at the Cartels, 390 Boss, Union Atlas. All 2012-2013 models

Can people way in on:
Stiffness
Comfort
Flex
Overall experience?

I'm looking for a binding that's good all around.
I'm a down hill longboarder, this is my off season. So if any longboarders want to share their input it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

That's the problem I am having. lol

pick based on colours matching your board, or look into the pro riders on the company's team and choose based on the raddest pro.

I vote for the cartel since i think Burton bindings are better than union and rome

I honestly don't like doing that.
Colors mean nothing. Pros are just paid money.

I haven't owned the 390 or Union, so I can only speak for the Cartel's.

They are great all around bindings, super comfy and durable. Responsive but not too stiff.

The only issue I've had is the toe buckle coming loose occasionally, kind of annoying but an easy fix.

Can anyone talk about the 390 Boss's or Unions?

I just got the 390 Boss from last year.
Found them for 130 new at an outlet.

I've ridden all three and like them all but like the atlases the best.

Soft enough or stiff enough to be on any board you own.
Quick Forward Lean Adustment.
Lightweight.
Straps don't get in my way and are comfy.
You can rock them over the toe or old school convertible. Deathgrip when rocking them on your toe.

Simple, awesome bindings.



I do agree with supra though, you can't really go wrong with any. Pick the color that stokes you out the most, or the pro, philosophy you like best.
