multisample I have some 09 Cartels and I think they are great minus one thing ..... the damned toe cap comes up/off the front boot after a while. Its a problem in a lot of bindings, not just Cartels though. Still, if it weren't for that I would have no complaints. They are just the right amount of stiffness to do all types of riding and plenty light. I usually keep 2 types of bindings around and the Cartels are my default. Of course, I didn't pay beginning of the year price on them either Now if I could find a way to make the toe cap a little more reliable ...

I'll swear by my Cartels. In my 15+ years of snowboarding my 2010 Cartel EST (don't knock this until you try it) are probably one of the best feelings underfoot I've ever had.

BurtonAvenger I'd ride the Unions if they paid me 50 bucks to do it otherwise why ride pieces of shit that the screws come loose on or ratchets that haven't been redesigned since fucking 1997.

turbospartan What about the Flux TT30's?

I currently have a pair of Cartel's that are about 4-5 years old, bought them off craigslist for $50. They seem to work good for me... but I don't have much to compare with. My previous bindings were over 10 years old, made by RED (Burton subsidiary) that doesn't even make bindings anymore.

Leo I love my Burton Snowboard, outerwear, and boots... but I hate Burton bindings. Cartels aren't bad, but they aren't worth the price in my honest opinion.

$230 you say?

Screw the Unions and Cartels. Hop on this:

Rome 390 Boss Snowboard Bindings 2011

If you don't hop on it, I'm not talking to you anymore since there is no hope for you. Mmmmm... Rome 390 straps... Mmmm... Canted footbeds (3 for each binder)... Freestyle flex.... Rome customer service.... Effin DEEEELISSH!

Triple8Sol Having rocked some Cartels for a couple years, I hated them simply because the parts were constantly breaking and the toecap slipped. They've changed the toecap since then, but not sure about durability.
