So telling me something about a binding so that I'm not selling something as something else should get someone fired? And where did I say as fact that it is a soft non responsive binding? All I've been told is they aren't as stiff as the Prophecy and in response are not meant to replace it. Am I going to tell someone that its a fancy binding for rich people? No, but that's the explanation I was given.

Actually I've been pushing people into Malavitas. Same glass content and same base (for Reflex) as the Cartel but with a stiffer torsional flex in the highback. EST is different as the frames are different between the two but I don't think a slightly softer base will make up for how much softer the highback is in this years Cartel.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
