I have a similar experience on my NX2-AT (can't quite adjust it to hold my boot down exactly the way I like... not sure if it is the shape of my boot) as I wish the ankle strap was a little higher.

I took Nivek's suggestions (loosening the toestrap and increasing the forward lean) and I adjusted the highback to the higher position and that all definitely helped a lot... but while I'm getting closer to a decent fit... I still like the secureness my Burton CO2 give me. The RS models looks mainly a little bit stiffer but I don't think it would "fit" any better. I'm going to keep riding them a bit more so see if there isn't some other adjustment I can do... but I'll probably get rid of them if I can't figure it out after another month of riding and adjusting.

Though I bought last years flows m11, I am in the same boat, no amount of adjustment has let me get a consistent fit each time and I feel they are always loose. I am gonna give em the rest of the season to see if I have achange of heart, but I'll likely be chucking these in the bin.

Got a pair of last week, was very surprise to see it's way more heavy than the previous version, what is going on here. Why Flow goes the other direction ..., should make it's lighter or at least the same.

It is a complicated system which is why the k2 cinch have always been heavier.

Just do a little weight measure, the new NX2-SE is about 3.5 lbs each, the old NXT-FSE is 2.30 lbs. So for the pair we carry extra 2 lbs .. gzz. The reason I chose Flow because they are much lighter than the k2 cinch, now they become one with Flow more expensive ....

My review of my NX-at.
first,i received my binding prety damn quick from EVO(4 days with free2day shipping special). I bought the black/green large size. I have the flow 5 and i compared the weight, NX2 is a tad bit heavier,but then it is solidly built. Took it out today after setting it last night, and my first impression is... the nasty system is great except i had a few stumbles trying to shoehorn my boot in. it is my first day with it but then again i had the same problem with my flow 5. The canted footbed does help with my knees a lot more. the only thing i noticed with the binding that i do not like is when i put boot in, the area where the bolt is connected between highback and the frame gets in the way when i step in. I guess i'll get use to it and not bother me much,though i did not have that issue with my flow 5. Overall, the binding is really great, very responsive and dampens the ride more on chopped up snow. I had an awesome day today with it and it was worth buying

Touché. Hah. I just try and keep as light as possible... Maybe my fatass should lose 2lbs to make up the difference...

Just curious, people with the heel lock problem, what size boot and what size binding? I'm also having that issue being between sizes on my NX2-GTs. 7.5/8 foot in a L binding. M doesn't fit.

Sucks because they were expensive and I want to like them, and you only notice when a lot of pressure is on it. So, not when test fitting in the store.
