Default Binding help for a Custom X

I recently bought a 168cm 09 Burton Custom X with the ICS set-up, and was wondering what kind on binding I should go with. Either way it's going to be a Burton EST style binding but it's between the Cartel and the CO2. The CO2 has a response rating of 8 while the Cartel has a 7 and is roughly $120 cheaper. I'm an intermediate rider and I'm mainly using this board for Straight lining groomers, hitting kickers and playing around on the odd press box or rail now and then. Is the extra response in the CO2 really worth the extra cash?

Either will work fine. I have been on the CO2, but have switched to the Cartel. Go with the cheaper binder.

This.
If you're an intermediate rider there's no reason the cartel's won't suit you.
Hell of a deal on last years model est's as well.
I ride an est jeremy jones with these un inc ics bindings.
Overall i just love how it rides.
Pretty thrashworthy, you won't regret buying that burton.
Happy shredding

I think I'll go with the Cartel EST's. Found a set of 09's in Vancouver so i think that'll be it, Getting Stoked. Thanks guys.

The Cartels have a higher back than other burton bindings and are a pretty stiff binding. If your speed and turn this is good for you. If your trees, and park I'd go with the C02

I have an 08 Custom X. Used Cartels mixed with Missions for a while. I switched to Ride Contrabands with the integreated tow strap for one big strap. It's pure magic. They don't cost that musch either and perform great.

Custom X with the channel (2009 and later) = must have Burton binders.

How are those toe strap things? i was checking them out at sno con last year and it seemed like it'd be a hassle to get on after the lift.
