Medium vs Large bindings for size 11

According to sizing charts I can go either way; is there an advantage going with a medium vs a large? I would assume the medium might be more responsive?

Size 11 is going to be tough to fit in medium bindings.

are you talking about burton bindings?

I wear a size 8 boot and bought a burton small binding (8 being the max for S like your 11 is the max for M). while the boot fit the baseplate and heel cup better than a M, the straps were just too small. even though it was doable, it was a huge pain in the ass strapping in. what i found that worked best for me was getting medium straps and using them on my S binding. perfect fit.

unless you're planning on doing what i did, i would go for the Large.

I was planning on getting the cartel reflex or reflex limited to go with imperial size 11 boots. Guess I'll be getting the large, thanks. They should be no problem with any boards over 250mm waist right?

Edit: the imperial boot size 11 say they have the profile of a size 10, would that make any difference?

Using size 11 burton rulers with large cartel bindings here. I definitely would not want the medium. It would be too tight of a fit to strap in. Performance wise, I don't see how there could be much of a difference... just the slight difference in weight but it's not really much.

If you've got Burton boots and bindings a medium binding works great with size 11 boots.

I didn't want to open a brand new thread as I have the exact same dilemma.
I bought Burton Ambush in size 11 the other day and am now looking for bindings/board.

I am thinking of getting Large Cartels but due to the new mini-discs they might be kinda difficult to center. Is there anyone who runs medium bindings with size 11?

Cartels do not have mini disks - no Burton bindings do.

That sounds very strange...

... and this sounds correct.

See here for another thread (with pictures) for the exact same boot-binding combo. The tray of the medium Cartel should be plenty big enough and a better fit than the large. If the straps really turn out to be a problem, can always use a large strap with the medium binding.
