If you get a reflex binding you can use it on other non channel boards, whereas EST will only fit the channel boards from burton.
Having said this I'm dedicated to the est and channel system.
If you want a higher end binding genesis would be a good match.
thanks i want to stick with an est binding seeing that it has the ics and getting a reflex would defeat the purpose lol how about malavita wing backs or reg or cartels genesis are out of my pice range
any input on the deck its self??
