A week later I had a bag full of every disc Burton makes, including the ones Forum makes (same company different discs), and all it cost me was a few minutes on the phone with some guy who shares my interests.
Just curious... what was your issue with the disks and what did they provide that helped?

Well reflex discs can basically only be mounted one way in terms of 90degrees to the board. If you have a solid plastic baseplate (which is the only way to go imho), the problem is that this type of bindings do not allow heelcup adjustment very well, so you have to do it with the screw holes. On non-reflex discs, you just turn your typical screw channels perpendicular to the board and bam, you can move the binding quite a bit for heel/toe centering.

example:


With reflex, you cannot turn the discs because it will negate the tech, they have a hinge in the discs if you've seen em before.

These are the discs I received from my original purchase, which you say, 3 sets, not bad? Well if you look at the 3 options here, none of them can be adjusted the way I previously mentioned.


So the bag of discs I got from Burton included all 3 of the above plus 2 forum sets, and like 3 more Burton sets, of which 2 or 3 had the screw slots in the orientation I desired. (the one below on the right is the correct one)

The one on the right in your last pics are the standard discs that come with the re-flex bindings. I had to call and provide a part number for the one pictured on the left, which allows minor stance width adjustments.


OP--- glad you weren't hurt, that looks brutal. Was it -30 outside?? lol
