They actually retail for $500. I picked up that same pair off Sierra Snowboard planning to ride them, took a look at them, and immediately sold them. The hardware on those things look like they were stolen from an erector set. Someone posted a thread on Sierra talking about how they actually went to a hardware store and bought replacement pieces for every screw/bolt on the damn things. I thought about it, but I am skeptical about Flows to begin with after TERRIBLE experiences years ago, so I decided it wasn't worth the trouble. Even though I didn't pay anything close to full retail, I'm incredulous that they could put hardware that shoddy on a pair of $500 bindings. Thankfully, they got rid of the Team for this season. Of course now their most expensive binding in the line is the 24 Real, a pair of $900 bindings plated in 24 karat gold. Silly Flow.
