Cartel Bindings.

I am looking to buy some bindings for a rome flag 160. I have size 13 feet. I have been looking at the Burton Cartels but recently heard that some people with big feet have had some problems with the toe cap. Anyone have any experience or can suggest a better binding? I am looking in about 150$ price range.

i have cartels and they are fine for me

toe caps feel a bit odd to start with, but you don;t need to crank em down like regular toe straps

people are usually the problem with their toe caps

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

I have got Burton Missions and the Est Triads and they are fine. I really like the toe caps.

i got the 09 cartel binding, good bindings , extremely comfy for duck.
i have big feet and no problems at all with my toe strap ,
its just different , btw the toe strap really pushes your boot against the spoiler.
you could also consider the custom bindings (burton), they are cheaper but less freestyle.
they are still good bindings

i've got the cartel and they're amazing, if the toe cap bothers you, than you can just convert it in a regualr strap, its gives you that option
