SIGH. I really don't know why you're going on so much about this.
1) they are a late release or as burton marketing puts it an early 2012 release. Not late season. Do you think Burton would release something in April??? Of course they make it to the stores in time for Christmas. These late releases typically get a low-key announcement in Oct/Nov and show up in stores in early Dec. Again, like I said before, I actually OWN these bindings. I'm not relying on some hazy memory of a friend having them at a certain time. Oh, and since you don't believe they are a late/early release, look in the 2011 Burton catalogue - they're not in there. Better yet, do a google search for 2011 Burton Cartel reflex.
No. Was wrong the first time you posted this and still is. Yes, they were an October/November release, but in 2010
. That makes them the 2010-11 or 2011 generation product. They are by no means early releases of the 2011-2012 or 2012 generation product
- which was, as I have repeatedly pointed out, different.
2) I really don't understand where you're going with this new baseplate angle. You're talking about the old baseplate vs the reflex one right? Look at the bindings in the OP --- they are REFLEX!!!!!! Same as 2012 and same as 2013. Please don't tell me I need to take side by side photos of them for you to believe me.
No, I am not talking about 'old baseplate' vs. Re:flex baseplates, I am talking about different Re:flex. There were different Re:flex baseplates for the 2010-11 and the 2011-12 generations.
3) Nobody is trying to say they are not from 2011. Of course they are two generations/years old
I am saying they might not be from 2011 - they are probably from 2010.
