Default Burton EST vs. standard bindings

Just picked up an 09 Hero off ebay last night. I have some older Burton Missions that I could throw on, and I know they are adaptable with the ICS system, I am wondering what the advantages might be to upgrading to some new EST bindings.

Is the ease of adjusting still there with the standard 3D plates as with EST? anything else I would be missing? I am sure some of this could be answered once I get my hands on the board, but I am clearly impatient.

From what I understand the EST system basically gives you a wider range of how to set up your bindings, the angles, stance and all that. At least that that is what I've been told

Better board feel is what would be gained if you were to switch to a EST binding.
I was running a pair of Missions on my Custom ICS last season and at the end I switched over to a pair of Triad EST.
The difference was immediately felt,EST bindings have no baseplates so this provides you to feel the "flex" of
your board.
