Default Recommed some bindings

Ok so after some less than stellar experiences with Flow The Fives Se I've decided that I need some new bindings. Preferably ones that are compatible with the Burton Channel. Burton's website recommends Malvita's but not EST version. Why not?

Board: 2014 Burton Juice Wagon 163
Boots: 10.5 Thirty two Lashed

Planning on buying when prices drop.

Malavita EST's on that. Otherwise something fairly stiff as the JW is a bit of a burly board.

General rule of thumb: if you have to ask, just get Cartels. If you need large wait till July; if you need small, wait till next year; if you need medium, buy now...

Great advice on sizing; that's my experience as a deal hunter.

I have the JW with Genesis EsT, really like the combination.

Note that it is a burly board; it's a little bit custom X in stiffness and overall theme but has more heft to it, not as light as the CX.

The Flow bindings are larges and my feet move around in the bindings. Should I be looking at mediums then?

I tried Burton Diode at a demo day. I love the new ratchet system (perhaps it was the same last year) and the ankle strap. So easy to strap and so comfortable.
I believe that Genesis has the same ratchet and strap as Diode. Diode is lighter and stiffer than Genesis.

The only reason to get ReFlex instead of EST is if you get a new non Burton board. Why Burton would recommend the ReFlex beats me.

If/when prices drops I get the Genesis for my new board.

Since you haven't ridden any of those bindings, I recommend going to your local shop and trying them on with your boot (obviously). If you could find a better deal than the shop, go for it. Good luck!

Problem is there isn't really a local shop in OKC. There's a skateboard shop that sells some snowboard stuff on the side and Sun & Ski Sports. After multiple bad experiences with them I'd rather not give them any business.

I ended up with the Flows due to people recommending things without much knowledge and thought they sounded cool.

I don't know why anybody would tell you to ride some flows on that deck. Est cartels or est malavitas on there. I have some prior year est cartels new in the box I could sell you pretty cheap.
