RE:flex bindings will work with any board (4 bolt, 3d and ics systems)
The EST bindings are only compatible with the ICS (channel) system.

burton claims the est/ICS is the best system

hinge est's are slightly more flexy than reflex, but not enough to bother imo. Reflex bindings work on all boards = win, plus they're cheaper = double win

While you can put a reflex binding on a channel board the best choice is an est binding, that's what they are designed for.

Anyways, channel boards go best with EST bindings, don't mislead the OP

What exactly makes channel boards best with EST bindings? Reflex, Unions with channel disc and whatever else is out there that's compatible works just as well.
To take Unions as an example, it's like saying contacts are better than forces, just because the base flexes more.
That's all EST bindings baseplates do: flex a small amount more than reflex. On a scale of 1 to 10, since est flex the most out there, I'd give them a 10 (on flex, not on how good they are), and I'd give reflex a 9.5.
In real world riding, there is little difference.
So, why give the OP the wrong idea and force him to get locked into one company?

Two advantages, in order:

1). The guy's new, the easy adjustment will be very handy for him as he figures out his stance.

2). Minor benefit from design and flex perspective

Original Poster, please listen to Supra, he knows what the fuck he's talking about and (not to embarrass him), if it means anything to you has footage of him shredding his motherfucking face off.
