I upgraded from a cheap/beginner pair to these and could definitely feel the improvement! Provided good support and it's quick to put on. Only complaint is that it's a long and somewhat uncomfortable process getting them worn in. But now they're good to go!
As someone fairly new to snowboarding, I thought bindings were all the same. But after using the Cartels, I've realized it makes all the difference! Light, responsive, and best of all, you can't even tell you have any bindings on.
