    Reflex vs EST?   

    Just picked up a barely used directional nug for a steal, I couldn't resist. I already own a pair of '12 reflex malavitas that are currently on my skate banana. The nug is my first burton board with the channel. Is it worth ponying up and picking up a pair of est bindings for it? I was thinking cartels. Or should I just use my reflex vitas? Will I feel the difference between est and reflex or is it a lot of marketing hype?

    Also if I do go with est cartels is the asymmetrical strap on the restricted pair that much better? I'm used to an asymmetrical strap on my malavitas.

    Thanks!

      I think you will be fine with the Reflex binders if you want to save some money. I have rode burton channel boards with a malavita in both EST and Reflex form and could not feel the difference.

    From my experience, I didn't notice any difference between reflex vs. est. Only thing I liked about est was being able to get your stance and angles right down to whatever you wanted. I don't notice any difference between burton's regular and asym straps either.

    This is coming from riding '11 est cartels last year to '12 reflex malavitas this year.

     Thanks guys, this is pretty much exactly the response I was looking for. The nug was a bit of an impulse purchase didn't really intend to drop any more coin on it.

    It's quite worth the impulse purchase. Enjoy it.

     NUG+Vitas=WIN in either EST or REFLEX....I prefer EST for the stance options and foam underfoot....
