I'm fairly new to the whole re-flex thing on the Burtons, could someone explain? I'll definitely test them both for strap hold and flexibility but I'm looking for something at about a mid-level stiffness (all-mountain). I'm honestly torn haha.

Again, appreciate the input guys. You're all very helpful!
Nivek or someone else will be able to explain better, but as I understand it, the disc in the middle is hinged, or flexy, as opposed to a hard piece of plastic which creates a deadspot on the board. It allows for truer board flex. You may not really notice or care, the big thing for me was the autocant on the footbeds, those are titties and kind of wrap around your boot instead of having a static degree of cant.

Cheeze is on point though, which ever one feels better for your boot is the one you should buy. Both are incredible bindings that will last you a long time.
