I've been wanting to get new bindings but I can't seem to decide between Burton's Stilettos (green) and Flow's Minx SE.
I've ridden with strap bindings, specifically Burton's so I know the deal with them but I can't help but want to try something new. I like the idea of being able to get into the bindings quickly and the fact that I could get out of my bindings while facing up the mountain; I have this horrible tendency to attempt this with my burton bindings even though I know it wont work out as well as I hope..
If anyone can shed light on how the Flow bindings feel and the response it has. (If possible, more specifically the Minx SE). Also, considering the fact that if I do end up getting Flow bindings I would probably need new boots.. anyone have any information about their boots as well?
I checked out their women specific boots and most of them have a more hard feel than soft... Anyone know of good women specific boots that might fit well with Flows? Or should I just stick with Flow boots. (I understand boots are made to fit with the specific company but can't help but ask)
I'll kind of miss the toe strap though (haha) If anyone has ridden with burton bindings and flow bindings, if you could shed some light one the situation, that'd be great! Thanks (:
Possible relevant information:
Current Snowboard: Burton GTwin (women)
Bindings: Burton Citizens
Boots: Burton Mint
(My setup was just thrown together about last year with little thought, with the exception of my board; kind of why I want new bindings.)
**Does anyone know if Burton addressed their slipping toe strap issue? :\
Wow long post..
