Its tough to really categorize the Cartel and 'Vita separately. From year to year the Cartel will sometimes feel stiffer than the 'Vita, and vice-versa.

They are both high end all mountain bindings. Shop the features. I have '12 Vitas and love them, that being said, I wouldn't hesitate to grab a pair of Cartels.

Price is the main factor, imo, 'Vitas are deeeluxe.

the raygun is a solid board, its not a twin like the happy hour though. It will ride a little funky switch but otherwise will be great all around.

Get the Cartels and the Raygun, and buy a pair of boots that fit your foot comfortably, regardless of make/model.

Then go have ride it and have fun.

will they have your size later in the Happy Hour? If yes, wait. If not, get the Raygun. What is "your size" out of curiosity?

Edit: pretty sure Sportchek does NOT stock Vita's.

What specifically makes them "more freestyle oriented"? The Cartel has been Burton's bread and butter binding for years now and is a solid freestyle binding in its own right.

People get way too caught up in the minor nuances and differences between bindings. Guarantee half the people posting in this thread couldn't tell the difference between the two. Don't get so caught up in the marketing BS, they're just bindings.

sport check does not have vita. The best they have would be the cartels. So no mix up or debate on that. If the get them then maybe but they have never had them so I am safe lol

They will have my size for board it is jjust a matter of when (size 154)

you guys are right also the happy hour is a true twin but will not perform as well on the mountain as the raygun but will do better in the park

you guys are right the raygun will ride funny on switch but will carve like a dream on the hill and fly

So much dilemma!

You're looking into it WAY too much.

The Raygun will not "ride funny switch"...unless you are terrible at riding switch.
