Cartels vs Triads vs P1s.....thoughts?

After reading the forum the past few days i think it might be time for an upgrade of my 6 year old burton customs(love these bindings and swore I would never do this). I have had these bindings through 3 different boards and have just never switched them up because they are teh shyt. I have plead blinded ignorance and have refused to change but after reading so many responses about the better quality of the upgrades I think i might have to pull the trigger.

Whats the difference and your preference? I have 15+ years experience and ride 75/25 in the Mountain/Terrain. thanks for the info


**** BTW, I have an 06 Ride Theory(Mountain) and a Banana(Park/Night) that I will be switching the bindings up on so they need to be able to work for both

I replaced some 2001 Customs with now triads this year and couldnt be happier. I really was impressed with the change from the old customs. Havent ridden the other bindings but the Triads were a bigger change than the new board I got this season too.

this is not from personal experience, but when I was buying my new set-up I originally wanted Cartels ( which the store had in stock ) but the guy showed me a drawer with about 10 or so broken ratchets from 08 Cartels. while he was mounting my new Ride Beta ULs on my board, some kid came in with a broken highback Cartel.

I honestly just cant make the move to another type of binding. I am still having doubts about the move from my customs and just dont want to go that far away

I can't speak about the P1s, but I was deciding earlier this year bewtween cartels and triads to replace my 2 year old freestyles(which I was not attached to lol). If you want me to explain in detail why I picked the Cartels then pm me and I'll be happy to talk. Basically, I ride more mountain than park and wanted something that will last, so I narrowed it down, also I had a moderate budget.

The ones on my Triads are a whole lot higher than my old school customs.

which store in Whitby was this, man?

there's one on Brock road (forget the name) but they were pushing Cartels on me when I was looking for a second set of bindings.
