flows are alright, i rode one of the higher end pairs for a season. the main problems with them are 1. they are a huge pain in the ass to do up in deep snow or on steeps, and 2 i never found them to have a very tight hold. i prefer stiffer bindings so i never felt like they were enough for me...
where are you located? theres tons of new or practically new gear on craigslist for dirt cheap where i live. i do live in whistler though so could be harder for you.
