Default SPi vs 390 vs Cartel

The clash of the binding titans...although I have the SPi's, I'm just curious to see what people think is the top binding in terms killing just about everything that's thrown at it (all mtn, freestyle, etc). I feel like Cartels are the tried and true old timers, then came the SPi's, and now the 390s are the relatively new kid in town...

What are your thoughts??

im going to throw this out there but Ride SPIs are no where near the top of legendary bindings IMO..cant go wrong with either cartels or 390s but the forward lean on burtons are just dumbb

I loved my SPi's but I would say the best all around binding I've ridden is what I have right now and that the Union Data's... super comfy, responsive and durable with a lifetime warranty on the base. The 390's are definitely solid but I'll pass on the Cartels... not into them myself though they probably sell more than any other binding out there besides the Mission

there is no binding that excels everywhere

until we get adjustable highbacks, targas are the closest thing

I'd go with the 390's

(Disclaimer: I'm a crappy intermediate rider from Florida who doesn't know anything about anything)

Never tried the SPis, but I've spent some time with the 390s and Cartels. 390s are great in the park (which is what they're made for), but feel a bit soft and sloppy for freeriding even with the ankle straps cranked down. For all-around riding, I prefer the more responsive Cartels.
