It's common enough. Cartels are a pretty middle of the road binding, as far as flexibilty and response and so work well in a wide variety of situations.

There is a certain level of inconvienence and hassle with switching bindings. I for some reason never seem to get my bindings dialed back-in exactly like I had them with out some fiddling on the mt.

Currently I switch them around as needed, but that's mostly due to financial issues that prevent me from getting a second pair to mount.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

if you want to do this as practice get a high-end pair of splitboard bindings (next season's sparks) and then get a set of solid pucks for each non-split board. drill/mill out the pucks some to reduce weight, unless you're #200+

I think I have about 12 or 15 pair

12 or 15 pair may seem like a lot but I got about 20 boards

I just got a pair of Burton Freestyles from Value Village for $5, no discs.
& a pair of Burton CFX's

I think I have all the pieces to build me the ultimate Franken-binding.

Everything in use or do you also count the antike puristical ones with pure plastic straps without any padding n stuff rotting somwhere in a shed?
Got rid of all these old ones: a guy from a shop was keen on them to use them for rental boards

I could & used to use all of them. Almost every pair I had before this season was/is a size Large.

I had a pair of Ride EX's @ the beginning of the season, which I loved.
A buddy offered to trade me his brand new 2013 Burton Freestyle bindings + $ 60 bucks for my beat up looking, yet super solid 2011 EX's.

The Freestyles were just a bit too big, I couldn't get the straps as tight as I wanted. That wasn't that bad though
The problem was, my go to deck & my Pow board are not regular widths.
I have a NS Heritage X 157, bought brand new off Craigslist for $225. But the guy only had this & an Evo in a 153. The Heritage was actually posted as just the Heritage, No X.

I didn't know until a few days later

Anyway...With a size 9 boot, on a wide board with bindings that are too big, even with the straps somewhat tight,
My heels were way too far back towards the heel side edge, my toes weren't even close to the toe side edge of the board.

It zapped my heel side carving power, I had none.

The size 9 in a Ride boot is just a wee bit smaller than all my past boots, I can use some of the bindings but I've done all the adjustments you can do & all the straps bottom out before I can get it as tight as I like.

Rideable, but not enjoyable. If you like your binders cranked up tight Neni, as I do as well. It would be like riding about 6 or 7 clicks of the ratchet from where you like it.

Bought a few more sets for cheap. Then mentioned on bomberonline that I was looking for a pair, some dude offered me his used Nidecker Carbon 900's for $200 Never heard of them + $200 for used bindings? Uh, I don't think so

After doing a little research, hmm.. They seemed like exactly what I had been looking for

Used my magical Craigslist powers, conjured some up for $60, with spare ratchets. Much cooler But they were in Seattle, I can't go to the states

About a month later & with less than a week left of the season, he emailed me back & said he was coming to Vancouver.
So far I've only got a couple half days on them, just to try them out, but ya, they are exactly the binding I was looking for.

They compliment my NS Heritage X perfectly



I don't really like how awesome it looks as a whole though
Pretty sure it makes the top 10 list of boards people are eying up to steal every time I go.

I always lock it up though, except when I'm using it as bait


TT


Neni, can't you see the Nidecker building from your balcony?
Maybe you should go across the street & try a few pairs out?

They have a real sexy black on black binding too, just they way you like em.
Betcha, they'd look pretty sweet on that Jones board.

These are the ones I got.
