Default the burton binding kool aid works!

I am sold on Burton bindings. K2s and FLUXs are alright (would be my 2nd and 3rd choices) but bindings are the only product I would give a solid "go-to" for Burton over other brands. I just put like 90 days on a pair of '12 'Vitas that I got from a member here, they are doing great.

I have both '13 re:flex Vita and the Cartel. Vita's high back is stiffer but I feel the Cartel is little more responsive overall. I'm not exactly sure why but it may have to do with the heel cup being little tighter (smaller) and the ankle straps being little stiffer.

I have the 13 reflex cartels, I was coming from Union Contacts. The Cartels are not too stiff as it's in the middle, I would say around 6 out of 10. It's super responsive.

I was able to center my binding and boot combo to have equal toe and heel on all my boards.

thanks guys! as ive never mounted bindings myself.. i tried this time and theres absolutely no toe overhang but the back is pretty behind the board.. is this normal or should i adjust them to be kind of equal? again, it is not the baseplate that is behind the board it is the ring above(dont know the term)..
