buy a pair of genesis bindings and keep your cartels - cartels on the custom X and genesis for the softer snow board and you're set
Should swap the binding-board combos - Genesis on the Custom (X) and the Cartel on the other board.

EDIT: Just saw that the Cartel are 2012. If the OP means 2011-12 by that, then it makes not much of a difference. If s/he means the 12/13 Cartel than the above stands.

Yah, it's kind of my trademark, although I've dropped my standard disclaimer lately.

For those who haven't read that disclaimer I only know burton stuff, (my local mountain has a number of burton demo days each year so I tend to try out a lot of their stuff).

Used to be I'd get death threats by PM if I even mentioned burton but things are a lot more moderate around here lately, all the lib tech and NS supporters have mellowed out a lot.

I forgot to mention the Burton Trick Pony, new this year.

Haven't tried it yet.

Csanto23 Bumping this up. Looking to buy soon.

I want to go for more of an all rounder but im not really much of a bomber. I want to hit jumps and jib a bit, but be able to bomb Blacks (medium Speed)

Hows the Echelon Killbox for this?

tonyisnowhere My two board quiver consists of one directional camber Arbor CX and a centered all mountain true rocker Arbor Cascade. Love the CX for carving and speed and love the rocker for the playfulness and pow riding (when we get pow)

Great question.

I ride mainly north east and I'm intermediate/advanced skill level. I definitely catch some speed on blacks, but I dont believe I do anything too crazy.

I have 2012 Cartels I'll probably put on my rocker board, then buy another set of bindings for the YES board.

Nivek My quiver is basically a Flow Rush and a Forum Scallywag. Similar in style to the Greats and probably the Drift Rocker. That's what I'd shoot for.

I think I'm dead set on the Yes The Greats replacement for 2014. This is going to be my all mountain/bombing board

So before that board comes out I want to try to pickup a nice jib/butting board.
I'm thinking Arbor westmark or Salomon Drift Rocker. I'm thinking a tad bit stiffer for the butter board because i'm 185 pounds.
