I bought the 2011 Burton Cartel Re:Flex and slapped it on my 11' NS SL. The bindings are awesome. Super responsive and we all know that Burton has the smoothest ratchets in the game. The Re:Flex discs give you a lot more feel. I'm loving their new gettagrip capstraps. I've tried Union, Rome, and Flux bindings. I would recommend Burton Re:Flex bindings to anyone.
I did the same for my 09 SL-R but have had less than a day on them. So far, so good. And those ratchets are one reason I keep on coming back to Burton bindings.

)(ood Forum's got 2 bindings, The Republic and The Shaka which both have the living hinge and probably aren't even close to sold out anywhere. Since Burton bought out Forum, they share a lot of the same tech now... Just a heads up

2011 Burton Prophecy, Re:Flex base

Rode the Burton Prophecys today for the whole day. I rode the M size, and wear a 10.5 boot.

Should start this out saying that I wanted with everything in my being to hate these bindings. They are silly looking, seem very hyped up, and well.... I am not the biggest Burton fanboy.

Rode them on my 2010 Bataleon Riot 155. Had them set at +15/-9 and 23" stance.

Took them everywhere today on my hill. Burned some groomers at mach 10, hiked into the slack to find some fresh pow (oh my goodness was the snow good today) Hot lapped the park, and rode in some of my favorite trees.

At first I wasn't sure what to think. I adjusted them to my boots, and let er rip. They were VERY comfortable the whole day (I don't think I even touched the front binding once). Seemed like I could never over tighten the straps. These are easily some of the most comfortable bindings I have ever used.

On the first chair up, I also noticed how light these are. This probably has something to do with the Re:flex base. It basically allows your board to flex underfoot. All of which I thought was probably marketing hype. After a couple of runs though, my board definitely was more poppy, and felt a lot livelier. It is hard to pinpoint exactly what is going on, but I am a huge fan.

I do wish that my shop wasn't sold out of these things, because they are now on my "have to buy" list.

I may just not give them back to my buddy haha.
