|snowjab||nothing fancy about sf45 but they perform better than any binding I've ever had. Had cartels capos targas and flux out performs them from the easiness of strapping and the responsiveness and a very light binding. Not a canted binding though.|

In the same boat as the OP. Not hitting the park...mainly groomers and some backcountry when the mood strikes. I settled on a Cobra, have some Ride Insano boots (super stiff) and hemming and hawing about bindings. REALLY intrigued by the Flux SF45. I have the Burton RE:Flex Genesis on the board now (have NOT ridden yet)...grabbed some Union SL and really found the toe strap issues to be pretty glaring. I saw some Flux ratchets on the TTs in REI and they seemed comparable if not better than the Burton ones.
So...curious to see/hear feedback on binding matches for that series of boards.

I am considering many of the same bindings- Flux 45s, Cartels, and Union Atlas bindings. Using with stiff DC Status boots and a few boards that are all on stiff side (A Frame, Berzerker, and Cobra). Mostly freeriding- no more park for me.
I want a responsive binding for most of the time- but one that is still fine for days of slower riding with my kids. Been riding for 20 years- old.
Per comment above- I have not ridden with Burton Re-flex. Does it really take away from the responsiveness?
I like the Burton toe strap over the Unions- based on store visit today.
I need to do more research on the 45s, but would appreciate any feedback.

I like the sf45s for a directional board like a Heritage or a Billy Goat or the stiffer Trice(cant keep all the models straight but I know he got a stiff ol big mountain twin or something).
I am liking the Malavitas but I have them on a Proto that I like to fuck around on, and they'll be migrating to my Evo next week.

Flux sf45 vs Burton Cartel vs Burton malavita restricted est
First off what is up with the Malavitas? online, people say that cartels are stiffer and more responsive than malavitas, but when feeling them in the store the malavitas felt significantly stiffer and the employess claimed the Malavitas were more responsive.
Also how does a restricted Malavita Est compare to Flux sf45's in terms of response. I want a good all mountain binding that gives me really good response which of these bindings would you say is best?
