Burton Process - Genesis X est set up

New to the sport and I am now hooked. I got my my next set up, up from my beginner just regular board and was just wanting to hear thoughts on my new stuff so I can either take it back because it wont fit be right for me or keep it and learn it and what to look out for.

New Set Up -
Burton process and Genesis X EST bindings that is.
Just wondering if I should be aware of anything that anyone may know. I hear this board will have less room for error but I just want to hear what anyone thinks about a set up like this that has more experience than I do.

How I like to ride -
I ride goofy - left handed, enjoy riding both ways I think they call it switch when you go the other way. I like deep wide carving and cruzing around. I have not started doing jumps or anything yet but am having a blast.

---
This is my first post and I want to start off by also saying whats up all! I am from the bay area and am now hooked on boarding and am always looking for people to go with or take with me. So far I have been to bear valley and Sierra. I have met some cool people out there and look forward to season passes next year.

Coming from someone who owns both those things, that binding will be too much for that board and will overpower it. As a result, you will have trouble feeling the flex of the board. Those bindings are on the stiffer end; whilst the Process is on the softer side of the spectrum for Burton decks. If there's anyway to exchange for Malavitas or Cartels, that would be ideal. Or reg Genesis even.

Thanks for the advice.

Curious what the flex is good for can you speak a little about it and the boards specialties.

I just ordered the cartel est bindings as well to try them both out. I might like the stiffness of the genesis X.

thanks a lot.

Process is a fun freestyle deck that feels slightly softer than mid flex. Fun all over the mtn and in the park esp, as this is Mark McMorris' board of choice along with many other Burton park/comp riders. It just starts to get a little less stable once you get to relatively fast speeds.

And nice, the Cartels should be a better fit to really make the most of what that board has to offer. Good luck, feel free to let us know how it goes.

Don't think I like the genesis x est bindings. The bedding seems like it's a joke and only the toe has give. Not sure I want give. I think I am going to go with the Genesis est no X because I like the backing more then the cartels. Any more thoughts?

I just bought a used Custom with Cartel EST. Will let u know how they feel once it gets here. I don't think it'll help much as season is pretty much done for me here in the NE and unfortunately it'll be based on feel in the living room.

I see good reviews on the genX est's but when trying them in the living room they feel funky. Just the toe compresses down.

You can't go wrong with either Cartels or Genesis on the process. If you prefer the Genesis highback, go for that. But if you want to save the money, Cartels won't let you down at all either.

Not worried about money, I just want the goods! I really like the gen's back but if I get rid of the X I can save almost 100.00
