I've been riding Union Force on my Park/rail set up for over 5 years now. I'm pretty happy with them. check out flux too.

ReFlex becomes useless after you put more than 9* on your bindings. After that the disc hinge doesn't line up enough with the flex direction of the binding baseframe.

Forces over Malavitas cause you'll save $60

I understand what your saying, but the reflex will still help past 9*, just caus the baseplate is so much softer your gonna get more flex than any other traditional bindings

Have you ever strapped into it? I have, you don't feel it. My Contacts are more noticable. The baseplate isn't really "softer" either. It just has portions taken out of it to make it more flexible. Good idea, needs more work.

I'd go for the Forces. In fact i'm getting a pair this year. I also just refuse to support Burton.
