I just found out my shop is out of Cartels in my size. I'm not sure the $10 difference online between the Forces and Cartels is huge, but makes the decision a little tougher.

Are you rocking this year's Cartels or a previous year?

fostpaint Any other opinions? I'm leaning towards the Forces right now, after reading some concern elsewhere on the Forum about the toestrap on the Cartels slipping up off the toe.

Cool. that was actually my concern about the toestrap-- it looked a lot stiffer in pictures than I hoped it would be

I suppose that would have helped, huh? I'm really still learning (this is my first set up) but I'm expecting to be mostly all mountain on the grooms (on the "ice coast") and would like to be able to get the occasional air. I don't expect to be hitting crazy rails anytime in the future, and not doing any backcountry runs, though the occasional glade run up at Jay Peak once my skills are there might be nice.
