Yeah you are confused. In 2011 (might be 2010) burton had a late season release of cartels with a re:flex disc. The next season all cartels were on re:flex. The year after that most of the line went re:flex (i think)

I just bought these on eBay. Although it shows the standard discs I need, I feel they are a reflex binding unfortunately. I also can't find anything on this colorway anywhere. What do you guys think?

They look like last seasons. The yellow on the back is from the mustard colorway. The rest are presumably the black colorway. No idea if that is the original baseplate or if they are frankenstiend (not sure if re:flex highbacks are compatible with their standard baseplate, I know EST and reflex highbacks are not compatible though.)

Mix and match bindings, probably the disks won't work with the base plate, can't be sure though. I wouldn't bother with them.

You should trade, you have nice bindings, someone would trade for another company similar size like rome or K2 or flow.

The graphics on the baseplate and footbed look like my 13's. here is the only other picture I have from eBay. I don't remember if the baseplate came in traditional disc that year. Otherwise, I don't know how you would even Frankenstein a reflex baseplate to fit traditional discs. Seems impossible.

I had emailed burton to see what they thought about my size 11's, and then i could not wait so i called. talked to guy on phone that said definitely get the large. 3 days later different guy on email said get the medium.

I got the forum republic instead. It has adjustable heel cup, and still has the hinge disc. From what other on this forum said burton will support. Indeed many of the fittings look the same as burton stuff.

Thanks for telling me about these. I will definatley research them. I was looking at the Union Factory, however, I am hesitant because of the toe strap and buckle.

None of the union stuff has hinge disc does it? Burton bought forum i think a few years back. So I think this is last year forum will be around. But I think burton will support for quite a while.

Take a look at my thread, and do some research on the forum stuff.
