As mentioned, the best part about flows is the speed of getting locked in. The one time I tried flows, I was able to strap on just before I got off the lift. What I didn't like about the flows was the response. To me, it didn't respond as well as the Targas I ride. However, this may have to do with the setup of the flows as they weren't set for me (it was a buddy's board and we swapped for a couple of runs).
