I have a Legacy, the wide SL.

I went with the Burton Cartels but was seriously considering the K2 Formulas.

The Cartels have auto-canting, not the traditional canted footbeds. Basically the instep of the footbed is made of softer material that gives more than the outside edge of the footbeds. I like them and find them super comfortable.

I do find myself tightening the forward foot binding after a bunch of runs, literally just one click of the ratchet every few hours on the ankle and toe cap. Nothing crazy.

I think the main problem with my bindings (07/09 missions) that I found was that even with adjusting both the buckle and the side option on the straps, it still wasn't tight enough... it was as far as it can go but I still found some "wiggle". They are a medium binding.

ah, I don't know you'll be able to figure that one out unless you try them at the store with your boots. I don't have that issue with the large Cartels and size 12 DC Judges.

I currently covet the Union Team Atlas with carbon infused baseplate (the SuperPro) for my all mountain board. It's the same as the SL with a stiffer highback. I'd recommend that over all.
Can you notice a real major difference between the highback of the SL and Atlas? One is about $30-$40 more.

Hmm alright. I'll see what models are in the stores around here and go from there. I know one place as the SL and Atlas from Union. Think another shop here carries the cartels.... time to check. Not sure on the other brands if they are carried.

The Rome 390 Boss works great with the SL too. Don't know if it's the best option don't have anything to compare to but feels good in every way.

I found the Rome 390 BOSS worked well with the SL for a mix of park and freeride, but got rid of them because the toecap didn't fit my boot (Nitro) well and kept sliding off. I ended up switching to a pair of Burton CO2s and I like them (there are a little bit stiffer though, and I generally like more responsive gear as before the 390 BOSS I had a pair of Burton C60s on it).

Not had too much problem with the toe strap slipping because I found that I way prefer the feel rocking them over the top rather than cap and have worn them mostly like that. More responsive, completely comfortable and works well with my foot shape.

Is it worth it spending the money on new bindings versus my current ones? I'm trying to save a bit of cash... not sure if the upgrade of $250 is worth it from my 2008 Burton Missions to a newer set.

My options are limited. I like the idea of auto-canting, however I'd have to spend $300 on burton cartels in Canada. I can get a set of Union SLs or Atlas for around $260.
