Default Proto CT holes pattern

I've been reading this post since begin and few months ago I was just happy that there will be a new board in never summer's line. Now I'm all into this board and think that this kind of posts should be forbidden because can ruin our budgets .

I have a question regarding holes pattern on 154 size and stance options. The reason why I'm asking is because I will use it with burton cartel re:flex bindings which as all of reflex bindings have limited (to one) stance options in their discs. In this case my only stance options are limited to those coming from board.

Thanks, Lucas

Hey Lucas I don't think you have anything to worry about with the Cartel re;flex.

You still have the ability to adjust stance angles with the disc in the binding, and the insert pattern (I'm pretty sure the Proto uses standard 4x2 6-pack insert pattern) on the snowboard allows you to adjust the stance width. This is no different than any other (non-Burton ICS) snowboard/binding setup.

So you are definitely not limited to "only one" stance option.

I think he's referring to how most bindings have 3 hole options on the baseplate for each insert while Burton's Re:Flex baseplate only has 1. You can't really make adjustments in .25 or .5 inch increments.

Looks like 3 holes per insert peep the baseplate pics from Porter's:

2012 Burton Cartel Re-flex Binding: Review
You can adjust it to center your boot from heel edge to toe edge. As you can see, the hinge on the baseplate is supposed to be mounted from toe to heel edge, not from tip to tail, to get better flex out of the board.

This is exactly what I mean, only centering boot on the board without possibility to make small ajustments to your stance . I think that specs of the proto would help.

if that is going to bother you enough to be posting about it you might as well run an ics board. All 4x2 boards are going to have the same micro-adjustment limits. What do you mean by specs of the proto? You want someone to measure all the different stance width possibilities with mounting holes perpendicular to the edges?
