Long time lurker!

So how about Malvita Reflex vs Cartel Reflex vs Genesis Reflex 2014 models?

Been riding a pair of 2013 Restricted Reflex Cartels which coming from my 09 Customs have been a treat, but I just got a steal on a pair of 2014 Reflex Genesis and after reading this thread and other websites i cannot wait to try these things based on the comfort people have reported.

Only thing is I'm worried I will feel the difference in response coming from the Cartels and I did like the idea of Autocant, although I'm not sure you can really feel it?

Only other option is to frank a Genesis/Cartel combo? Genesis with Cartel hi back and vita Autocant bed or Cartel with Genesis straps?

Also whats the deal with the Gettagrip capstrap vs lightweight Gettagrip capstrap? Apart from been lighter and having more of a foam liner vs rubber?
I presume the lightweight is better as its on the higher end models???

If it makes a difference I'm on a 2013 K2 Happy Hour so hopefully the Genesis will suit the board better and be a bit more playful?

i would love some feedback also. i have the 2014 genesis reflex on a arbor blacklist and personally love it. they are really comfortable and the response is great. i ride park and all mountain on the same board although i just bought a 2014 never summer cobra and plan to ride the same same bindings because i heard these bindings are great for all

okay so I picked up a new 162 trick pony 2014 and just ordered Malavita est. a

I am upgrading from a bullet and customs.

weigh 240 6'1 and freeride most the time, not a big fan of the park but like to freestyle on mountain.

any thoughts on if the set up will be ok?

Hey guys.

I have a 2013 Burton Aftermath w/ Channel (Camber flex rating: 5).

Currently have custom reflex bindings, they did the job last season. I ride all mtn (park, speed runs, carving, powder days when available).

Want something more high performance then the custom to get the most out of this board...

Any suugestions?

For exceptional all around performance and great comfort: Genesis. The two part highback rocks.

For uber stiff, uber light, uber responsive, uber expensive: Diodes. (Still pretty comfy)

I run both, genesis for powder, diodes otherwise. Personally I think that stiff bindings aren't as important in pow, you can easily press the edges, while stiffness matters for slicing up groomers.

I think the Vitas get my vote. It'll give you the highback you need on whats effectively a cambered custom twin but not be soo aggressive its not fun on slow or pow days.

Hey Nivek...
For a Burton Fish, Genesis vs Malavita? (EST)

I think Gens are perfect, but I already have Genesis ReFlex, so I doubt i'd also get Genesis EST.

So would it be worth it to go 2016 Malavita EST just for what the EST brings? or might as well just slap the ReFlex Genesis and not care about EST? or get something else like Flux DS, Now Select, Contact Pro?

Honestly the Genesis belongs on the Fish. And if you have the cash the hinge on EST does make a difference and feels really nice in deep snow.
