The retail here makes both bindings the same price. However I'm still a little wary of burton bindings from a durability angle, from personal experience not bandwagon hopping. I liked the way the cartels felt they just didn't stand up to abuse. I tried a pair of 390's and they felt super comfy but it was hard to judge performance as the board had a huge chunk missing from the sidewall on the heel edge so I was just cruising.
That is possibly the most misinformed thing ive ever heard.
Bindings have so many different factors. What type of material they are made of makes a difference in not only flex but durability and comfortability because lets face it if you're binding presses on pressure points youre going to hate and and probably not ride up to your full potential. All bindings are not created equal.
