Default Binding Recommendations

I just snapped my Burton Custom Ltd bindings last night while trying 360s in the park and need a new pair by early next week. Looking to spend around $200-$300. My boot size 10.5-11 and I weigh around 200 depending on my beer intake. My riding style is mostly freeride, although lately I've been getting into 180s and 360s and going into the park a bit more. I really liked the toe-cap on the Customs, so I'd like to get something similar. Was thinking that I might upgrade to Cartels, but I'd like to see what others may recommend.

I tried searching but after looking through a few pages I think it would be easier if people just threw out their 2 cents. Thanks!

I have brand new Cartels I can sell you for 200$... I rode on 'em 3 times, and they're way too flimsy for my 260lbs bomber style... I have 'em on kijiji, check it out.

Hmmm... really? I got 'em shipped to my door from Axis for 236 bucks, and I grew up with the owner of that place... Hardly think he'd rip me off... I seen 'em in Canmore for 260 bucks... but in my opinion they're not worth 2 cents.

If you're not in Canada you got ripped off for sure. Cartels are selling for around $150 here in the states.

I have a set of 09' cartels and they are a nice set of all mountain bindings but, for the OP I would also recommend Rome targas. They are still enough for all mountain but has the adjustability and flexability to go inthe park when called for duty.

Vin: I'd have to do some shopping around before I'd commit to buying used bindings, although the price is good if they are in mint condition.

Thanks for the suggestion on the Targas I'll check them out at my shop as they seem to be exactly what I'm looking for. Keep'em coming if people have other ideas.
