what type of rider is he? park or freeride or what? i have the cartel est's and like them, but can't really comment on the exile est's. The cartels are fairly stiff, or at least compared to what i'm used to and the exiles are a bit softer binding i think. So if he freerides mostly and doesn't hit the park much i'd say get the cartels but either would probably be decent bindings.

On the Burton site they recommend the Cartels. There might be some 2009 EST Cartel's floating about cheap. Not sure if they are too different from the 2010 model.

He mainly freerides but is wanting to start park riding this season.

you can find last years cartel est's for a pretty good price.

Default Cartel EST

When it comes to burton bindings, you don't really want to go any lower than the Cartel to begin with. That being said, the Cartel is a good versitile binding that is good all over the mountain. As far as EST or not. With the money he's dropped on a channel board, he might as well drop the extra bucks to get the bindings that are made for it. Or else he's relying on 2 screws holding a plastic disc, which is holding the bindings to the board. Just 1 more thing to fail
