Messed with it in the store the other day. Here's the problem. The hingd on the disc lines up perpendicular to the boards running length, can't change that. This means the disc also flexes perpendicular to the boards running length. The problem is when you ride angles more than like 9. If you do then the baseplate hinge direction lines up too far off the hinge flex line. This means you get little to no binding flex.

Get Contacts if you're really worried about binding dead spots

i read a thread with people bashing contacts. if i got something it would be the contact pros because my board is dh2.4 a slightly stiff park board. but is there anything bad to say about the contacts?

If this is for a DH2.4 then I would be looking at Delta's, Force SL's, Nitranes, 390's, or TT30's.

What's your beef with Burton ? Or a prophecy. Even better is there coming out with a cartel with re flex and canting in December. Is it that you don't think the base flex is nessary for this board?
