Reflex Binding on an ICS Board? Burton

Has anyone here ever used a Burton reflex binding (non-est) on an ICS board?

You are probably thinking why I don't just buy an EST binding? Well...

I have a Custom V-Rocker ICS board with 2010 Cartel EST. I just picked up a 2012 t.rice and was force to buy conventional bindings, so I ordered 2012 Reflex cartels.

I don't plan on getting rid of my Custom so it sucks to have two bindings so similar for two boards. It would be a pain to pack two boards with two bindings on big trips.

I know I can't go from EST binding to a non-ics board.

Would I be able to mount the 2012 reflex bindings on the ICS board without losing performance?

I have some Reflexs on my Burton Hero and it didnt seem like i lost performance with my board. I had some Custom ESTs on my board before too. Reflexs is like having EST bindings, in my opinion. Reflexs are pretty much comparable to ESTs, its like having ESTs on a non ICS board.

Went from Co2 reflex to Diode est on my Custom x. Also tried cartel est. The Co2 actually has the best board flex of the 3. Cartel had the best foot feel but offered the least board flex. Reflex works really well with the burton channel as well as 4x4 and would be my pref over a standard est. Diode is the best of both worlds but can't go wrong with reflex in my opinion.

Does anybody else have any experience with the reflex bindings on an ics board?

The only reason I'm asking is because I don't want to be stuck with burton if i want to buy a second board aside from what I'm buying.

I most likely won't have the money for both bindings and board if I buy a new board.

I do not plan on buying a second board in the life of this board.

the problem is I'm curious about the hinge on the new cartels and not sure if est has much of a difference (aside from the hinge) from reflex as far as feel is concerned..

I am not sure on which to get out of the reflex from this year, last year, last year's est, or the new est cartel.

In question format, Which would yall recommend out of the four most recent cartels for an ics board?

Do it. No reason not to and you're bindings will be usable with other boards.

as multiple posts above stated, reflex works fine with the channel. I have a pair of 12' reflex cartel's and 13' est cartel's. I had no problem with the reflex, just found an amazing price on est this summer and grabbed them. At this point I can't tell how much of the difference in flex is due to switching out my camber custom for the camber process/ reflex to est; but I am confident that you won't feel any drawbacks from the reflex.
