Default which bindings with new lib tech hot knife?

i just grabbed a new lib tech hot knife 153. I'm coming from a gnu carbon credit with 2012 ride ex bindings. the gnu was nice but it wasn't too stable at higher speeds and didnt handle the chop so well. the store let me try out some new burton cartel reflex bindings. the ankle and toe straps were extremely comfortable and i especially liked how easy the ratchets were to come off. i returned the bindings and figure ill do a little research before i send a $229 on bindings. i also tried rome 390's on a different board. they felt fine but not as comfortable as the cartels. just curious as to what other bindings u guys might recommend to try out before i spend the money. at his point i like to fast and carve but i would like to start practicing jumps. thanks for all the help

If you liked the cartels, you really, really, wont be sorry that you bought them.

They're, pretty much, a can't fail purchase.

but put as many energy drink stickers as you can on there.....those make you shred 38% harder.

yeah, nothing says 'pro' like a big monster sticker on your deck.
Then, throw everyone for a loop with a drink water sticker (just to let the ladies know that while you're a badass (monster sticker), you do have a sensitive side (drink water)

Like the others have said, if you like the Cartels, get them. They're good bindings, you won't regret the purchase.
