2013 Cartels vs Malavitas suggestions

Hey guys im looking to get a new set of bindings and its between the burton cartels and malvitas. I mainly just freeride on groomers and hardpack. I want something that is responsive and not too flexible, but I also ride 8 hours straight when i board so comfort is a major factor also. What would you guys recomend? Also i have size11 white collection boots that have shrinkage tech so should i go with mediums or larges? Thanks

Malvitas if you want the back of your boots to last and not wear out. If your not concerned, the Cartels.

I have both, cartels felt a little softer, I love my malavitas! So comfy ride from park to groomers, to riding blacks. Their so comfy I forget I'm strapped in, I never have to think about them all day, I usually ride 6-8 hours a day too.

Ok well as far as size go, should i go for mediums or larges with an 11 boot with shrinkage? Im currently riding larges but maybe sizing down would be a better option?

Definitely the large. Even if you can fit your boots in a medium the toe ramp will be way too short.

Mediums are a good fit with size 11 Burton boots.

Ok well i think i can get the malavitas new in medium for about $200, but larges i cant really find anywhere other than retail for $260. Would the mediums be so small that its not even worth the $60 savings?

Vitas 100%. Most comfortable binding I've ever ridden.

Cartels wore the back off your boots out? What kind of boots?
