Mike - I've rode both the CD and CWB Bindings. For a snowboard boot look (if it's apperance only you want) go with the CD's if you want comfort and support I would suggest going with the CWB.
First thing I didn't like about the CD's - It seemed to take me longer to "board up" basically it took me a lot longer to get ready. I noticed that I would lace up then have to unlace to untighten the binding and on the water adjustments are nearly impossible. Secondly - Mentally I was afraid I wouldn't come out and if I didn't I was afraid of serious knee injury. Third, great bindings however, pokes and grabs were a little more difficult since the outer shell is a bit stiffer than most bindings. Again over all I would say CD's are a great binding, not my first choice though.
CWB - Really can't say enough so far about the Boss's! I would suggest test riding both brands if you can, then making a choice from there! It's all about the fit and feel for you! We can give you our suggestions, however what feels better to us, might not feel the same for you!
Best of luck to ya!
