Default Burton Reflex Heel lift Video

I have posted about the heel section of the base of my Burton Reflex bindings lifting off of my board and also read some other posts about it. It always seems to get confused with the heel lift you get when your boot is not fitted correctly in your bindings. I came across this video and thought I would share it because it clearly shows the base lifting that comes with at least some Reflex bindings. The bindings in the first part of the video are last years Prophecy Reflex (the other bindings are the Now IPOs, its a Now video). They are the bindings I rode for the first half of the year until they became too soft for me and the base lifting gave me an uneasy feeling and some chatter at high speeds. The fit, finish and components on the Burton bindings are great but they just have too much play for me (I am 210lbs, this problem may not be so pronounced for a rider who is say 150 lbs).

I'm 175 lbs - hope this doesn't give me as much heel lift on my reflex bindings (they're on my all mtn/pow board). They felt o.k. the few times I've ridden them, but I'm guessing they'll get softer with use

like someone said, the Now bindings have lateral flex but not the forward flex the reflex system was originally designed for. Sounds like reflex may be better for soft freestyle/park boards.

Nope, I'm not promoting Now, it just happened to be the only video I've seen that shows clearly what I experienced with my Burton bindings last year.

Yeah, I liked the Prophecys a lot for park riding after they were broken in but thats not the type of riding I bought them for.
