Union: Just what I read in some reviews. Don't know if it's true. I never used Union bindings myself.

So how would the Capo compare to the Cartel?

The Capo and Cartel's feel similar in flex, and somewhat in feel. However, Ride's bindings are more durable because of their aircraft grade lightweight aluminum. They last quite a while. The Cartels use a nylon-glass blend, making them a bit lighter but less durable. They are more prone to breaking then the Ride's. I would take the Capo becuase of that and their excellent customer service. They ship you a new product no questions asked if they break.

Default Step up from 2012 Cartels?

I have the 2012 Cartels ( mounted on a burton bullet) and the 2013 Union SLs ( Never Summer Cobra).... In my option and experiences the Cartels are much better not even close... So I'm also trying to find a better binding which is equal or better to 2012 Burton Cartels to replace the Union SLs which are mounted on my Never Summer Cobra..

Capo's are much stiffer than the Cartel. This is from experience.

And I would say the exact opposite from experience.

You're going to pass up on a binding that Torstien, Brisse, Biittner, Ulrik, and Kazu are all killing it in for that?? Because of something you once heard?

If you want to Name Drop on the Cartel's:
Mark Landvick
Shaun White
Aaron Bittner
Mikey Rencz
Greg Bretz
Iouri Podladtchikov
Mikkel Bang
Jussi Oksanen
Terje Haakonsen
Ayumu Hirano
Jake Olson Elm

Not that any of those names should be any consideration as some are paid to ride a brand and choose a product and other just ask for a that product.

None of these names should have any merit because it's something you heard... on the internet.
Ride what you actually believe you want to ride be it for wanting to try something new or wanting the thing that you always liked. there's no right answer and anyone that says otherwise is trying to sell you something, sometimes with a list of names as a "reason" to buy it.

Yeah, I wasn't talking about the Cartels. I actually like the Cartels esp for jibbing. I think a convertible cap option would be a nice addition but whatever. I was actually referring to the Amplids. It'd be like someone hearing the Cartels ratchets skipped so they're going to buys some obscure foreign (start up?) binding instead. It may as well be Germany's version of Morrow for all he knows. That was my point.

I suggest the new K2 Company IPO.

IMO that looks like a very deluxe motherfucker right there.
