You don't think the Asym strap is better than the Cartel react strap? It's a wash?

Interesting you think the cartels as being softer than the Malavitas. Very interesting.
I saw the OP metioned "bump for more opinions" and confused that with you.

Well they are supposed to have the same baseplate build and the Cartel highback is softer. So I can't imagine Cartels riding stiffer than Malavitas despite what the Burton site will tell you. But then again the Forum Destroyer is softer than the Youngblood despite what Forum tells you so whatever.

I actually haven't ridden the react strap, but it works on the same principle as the Asym, more strap less padding. I don't foresee it being any more or less comfy than the asym. Both should be pretty rad.
Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Thanks a lot for all your input Nivek, much appreciated. I'm actually leaning toward the Malavitas now myself.
