peterwallace Ah. Interesting.
Maybe Malevitas it is then.

bseracka Burton website aside, most riders are reporting the malavitas being stiffer and more responsive this year than the 2013 cartels. General consensus is that the Cartels are true freestyle binding again.

peterwallace Thanks for the suggestion.
I looked at the specs for the Malavitas on the Burton website and they looked like more of a Freestyle binding.
I really liked my old CFX bindings and they worked well on the Canyon (which was basically a wide Custom). What is the nearest equivalent to the CFX? Of the Diode, Malavita and Cartel?

bseracka I'd look at the cartels or malavitas if you want to stay Burton. The Diodes are a super stiff and responsive binding, they can work for you, but are a better match to a stiffer board like the custom x

What bindings?

I used to board quite a bit in the past until the arrival of children which put the kybosh my snowboarding for a while. However, my boys are now of an age when Winter sports are back on the the agenda... week in Wengen in February (Yay!).
I used to ride a Burton Canyon 168 with CFX bindings but the board is pretty knackered now so I forked out on a new Custom 169W. This has the ICS system but my original intention was to get an adaptor and mount the CFX bindings on it. However, I am now minded to shell out and get a get some EST bindings. The question is which one.
I really like my CFX bindings as they are really responsive, particularly on the heel side (I am not one for the snowboard park - more of a back-country person). I think that I have narrowed it down to either the Cartel or the Diode so my question to you all is...
... is it worth shelling out an extra 115 for the Diode?

Thanks in advance.
