How Stiff Are Malavitas?

Hi, could someone definitively tell me how stiff the 2011/2012 Malavitas are? I'm seeing differing reviews on the internet. I'd be using them with Salomon Synapse boots and a K2 Turbo Dream, so an all mountain setup, but slightly leaning towards freeriding; however I love hitting natural features etc. and do sometimes go to the park, so I don't want them to be super stiff. Would Cartels, Malavitas, Missions or Rome 390s do the job best?
thanks lads

Malavitas are not that stiff. I found the 390 Boss more stiff. This is all 2012 stuff.

It's not soft by any means. But I think the Re:Flex allows it to flex a little more.

Just your general hey I don't really know what flex this is binding. Similar to the K2 uprise for me. Raiden Blackhawks a smidge more stiff. 390 Boss noticeably stiffer. Again, all my own experience.

hmm, ok. i was thinking of getting last years, which should then be stiffer, right? (no Re:Flex). Do you think they'd be stiffer than the Missions from last year?
thanks man

For what you're describing, the Malavitas will be fine. Pretty sure they're only available in reflex/est unless you're getting some from like 2-3 years ago.

They've been re:flex for a while. Honestly reflex isn't that big of a deal IMO. There's a slight play at the beginning that's all. No idea on Missions never rode them.
