Default finally sick of the unions

okay so i've officially had it with the forces. ive disliked them since day 1 and have hated them more and more with every day on the hill. so now i come to my decision..

do i go with :
rome 390's (boss)
ride capo
burton cartel

I want a solid all mountain binding, preferably with canted footbeds.. ive read great things on all 3, so im curious what you guys think? does one have more positives over another? ive only ever ridden cartels out of the three.

any help would be great. thanks

Worth taking a look at some K2 and Raiden options as well. Both have canting and quality dampening systems.

Well take your pick for your riding style, they're just really good bindings.
SF45s are the stiffer ones
TT30s/RK30s are more or less the same except RK30s have a urethane high back giving you a lot more flex.
I think TT30s are nylon highbacks but they still flex a bit. I have TT30s and i really like them.

What's the problem? It would be good to know, even for the people recommending other binding brands.

As a "warning" the Cartel isnt what it has been the last few years. I feel like it's back to being the freestyle dominator it used to be. Where the last few years its been more all mountain almost freeride feeling. Really awesome now though. For me it's the best Carte I've been in.

For a killer deal look at the K2 Formula. Everything you want in a light responsive package. Still the team favorite. For a bit of a skatey feel the new Salomon Holograms are fantastick and what I'll be riding this year along with Flow NX2 SE's.

So of your original List, Cartels.
