Toe to heel edge to edge... a softer binding high back and baseplate are going to flex instead of pushing your energy into the board like a binding with a stiffer high back/baseplate.

I have ridden EST Cartels... more board flex as they are essentially baseless (well close enough for me). Toe to heel response was decent.
