I have both Flow NXT-FS and Rome Targas. While the Targas seem a little more responsive, it was not as much a difference as I expected. The Flows get plenty snug without interfering with getting your boot in and out, especially when you use a healthy dose of forward lean on the highback. I had a loaner pair of NXT-AT and preferred them over the NXT-FS, mainly because the highback is simpler and less damage prone.

I wear Vans Savior boots in the NXT-FS and they fit fine. So long as you do not have a super wide booth at the extreme range of fit for the binding, most any boot should work well.

My girlfriend has a pair of Amp-9L with Vans Omni Boas and that combo works just fine too.

While I really like the Targas, on the little local hill, it is just too convenient to be in and out of the Flows so quickly. Recent trip out west saw the Targas though.

Take all above with the caveat I am a beginner/intermediate. Given the tenor of this thread, I guess I am just out of touch and uncool for liking my Flows ;-)
