2012 Burton Prophecy vs. 2014 Cartel EST Limiteds?

The 2012 Burton Prophecy bindings had a dual-component baseplate that was supposed to give a ride very close to the EST "feel" even though they were ReFlex bindings. Anybody know how they compare with the new 2014 Cartel EST Limited bindings (with the Hinge)? In particular which of them would have the best edge-to-edge response and damping.

Thanks!

Care to elaborate as to why you you say the Limited EST is not worth it? Are the Prophecys more responsive?

Thanks!

I think you'll find the cartels softer. The reflex ltd have diode bases and ankle straps, the est just got the hinge and kept the regular cartel straps. Not a huge deal in hindsight though

If you're contemplating buying new bindings for your ICS board, why not get bindings made exactly for setup? I'm sure Burton puts a ton of R & D into their proprietary system, and i've heard nothing but great things about the hinge. You'll also get easier adjustability by using the system as it's meant to be used, and a lighter setup if that matters.
