Technically both are reflex. Reflex simply refers to an upturned camber at the end of the airfoil. To avoid the confusion of referring to "built-in" vs "trim" reflex I never use the term "reflex" to refer to elevator trim. I would personally describe the Clark-Y thing as: using an airfoil with no reflex with lots of up elevator trim.
