phony_stark Original Poster, please listen to Supra, he knows what the fuck he's talking about and (not to embarrass him), if it means anything to you has footage of him shredding his motherfucking face off.

That's all EST bindings baseplates do: flex a small amount more than reflex. On a scale of 1 to 10, since est flex the most out there, I'd give them a 10 (on flex, not on how good they are), and I'd give reflex a 9.5.
In real world riding, there is little difference.
So, why give the OP the wrong idea and force him to get locked into one company?
Two advantages, in order:

1). The guy's new, the easy adjustment will be very handy for him as he figures out his stance.

2). Minor benefit from design and flex perspective

Anyways, channel boards go best with EST bindings, don't mislead the OP

While you can put a reflex binding on a channel board the best choice is an est binding, that's what they are designed for.
