Reflex XXL

Deep11Deep11 Posts: 221 Solid Baller
Hi, does anyone know if any of the top end skis out there have binding hole patterns that take the reflex xxl plate?
Ive got mine on a vapor ProBuild and the toe bar is about 4 inches in front of the furthest forward holes. This means there is flex and the resin/moulding round the bar keeps falling apart. I know it’s not a strictly necessary part but the flex can’t be good? (My “plates of meat” really aren’t that big!)
I’m looking to change skis for next season......
Thx

    I had to add 2 inserts from D3 on my 68" NRG.
    Special Thanks to Performance Ski and Surf and the Denali Adam's !!!

    The 68" 2019 D3's have additional inserts as standard.

    Can we start a petition for a new standard binding plate screw format. Skis need the extra 2 forward holds from trick skis plus rear pattern universal.

    Not just me then...
    You’d think it would be standard on 68 and 69
    Thx @aussiemc will look at D3.

    @BraceMaker I agree! All the trick skis have those forward inserts, and so should slalom skis. The new D3 skis do have two forward inserts but they are not the same as their trick ski pattern. The two additional inserts are in line with the remaining front inserts, which requires a different mounting plate than a trick ski. They do match the reflex xl plate. Making the trick ski insert mounting pattern the standard on all skis will help with interchangeablity. All MOB mounting plates currently have the trick ski mounting pattern, but the D3 pattern will be available soon. FYI I added trick ski inserts to my D3 skis.

    I agree. I tried a ski and had to push the bindings all the forward. I could fell the plate flexing when I hit the wakes. Had one release from it. Should be standard
