Flow haters here ya go

Received my new 2010 NXT ATSE's yesterday along with my buddy's M9-SE's and tested em out last night. Verdict, kick ass bindings that look as good as they ride. My buddy has been riding Flow's for a couple years (without issues) now and he's the one that actually got me to go with them. (Had 2010 Burton Cartel's before) My NXT's are on my '10 Parkstar 157 and I wear '10 Burton hails and it's a perfect match. The board feels like it's a part of me rather than something attached to my feet and the same thing for my buddy. They are both stiff (NXT's are a little stiffer than the M9's) and turns are very precise and responsive.

We bought them from Snowboard, Snowboards, Burton Snowboards, Burton Bindings, Burton Boots, and snowboard reviews - Free Shipping - US Orders Over $100 and they had dirt cheap prices. This past week when we ordered Sierra had servers issues and when I called to ask them what the status was on our orders on wednesday I was told about the issue. I asked if they would still arrive by yesterday and they gave us FREE overnight shipping to make sure we got them yesterday to make good ont he issues on their end and they came through perfectly. HIGHLY recommend them to anyone.

Anyway, thought I would share my experience. Here are a couple pics of his and my setups.

One thing I forgot to mention that's important is the weight. They are very light weight. I need to weigh it tomorrow and see. You can definitely feel it too when riding which to me is a great thing. Easier to spin and thrash around.

You nailed it in a way I haven't been able to describe...once dialed in, my NXT FRXs (Flow's stiffest, I think) just make the board feel like it's a part of me. I got Flow's The One boots, too, figuring they'd be a good fit with the bindings. They are. Mounted to my NS Titan, the response is incredible. I can't believe people could have a bitch with these bindings unless they just don't know how to get them adjusted properly (or didn't bother to take the time to do so).

Gotta say it again, though; cheap Flows are...cheap. Don't waste your money. But anything in the NXT line is sick.

BTW, sweet set up you got there!

So do the NXT-ATSE's only have 2 ratchets on each strap now? I have last year's NXT-ATs. Great bindings. Mine are actually very light as well compared to a lot of bindings. I don't think people realize that.

Oh I'm not sayin they are gods gift, I'm just sayin they are great bindings and not shit like some people on here I see say they are. I have roughly 15 hours now on mine and love them still. I get easily double the runs in now compared to when I ran conventional bindings.

In fact, I just picked up a pair of Flow Prima-SE's for my girl which are basically the female version of the NXT AT-SE's. She's tryin em out for the first time this coming sunday.

How long does it take you to strap into conventional bindings??? I'm not a flow hater, actually I'm pretty impressed by the NXT line myself, but that statement needs clarification.

Put it this way, I can step into my Flows while I'm still riding the lift if I really want to. I can step into them and lock them up as I am skating off the lift as well. I've seen people strap into their traditionals fast and all, but I have yet to meet someone with traditional bindings that can strap in faster than me. If we were to actually have a race, I could eventually lap them after a few runs. The speed of Flows adds up.

And yes, the ATSE has only two ratchets, therefore you can set them up by strapping in like any other traditional binding. All of Flow's SE lines have this new system. My predictions are they will have it standardized by 2012.

They still sell the normal AT's though without the new system.

I have the NXT-FSE which I happen to love. Stiff, responsive, light, and never hurts my feet.

Shrox: Unions are Drakes in different colors. Good enough reason for you? Where's all the Drake hype? Maybe if they start releasing all green Drake bindings people will jump on.

I don't know about twice as many runs, but I know I get in a lot more than I used to. After a little more than a year with them I can almost strap in without stopping when I get off the lift. When the guys two chairs in front of me are still finding a spot in snow to sit down and strap in, I wavin buh-bye and am on my way.
