Just went bunny hill riding for 6 hours testing out my new evil twin 157 with the same agro bindings. Just to repeat the toe wraps on these things still suck. It came un done once and no matter how hard I try to push it in it won't. My foot is not locked in with the toe straps and likely 90 percent with the ankle strap. I hope they replace them with bukles and can replace mine as well. I still have pretty good control but for the price I paid they should be perfect. Retail for 320 Canadian.

I've found that most of the people who have problems with flow bindings simply don't know how to set them up properly.

Btw, regarding the Fastec... since there's a button that auto-releases the ankle strap, could that be potentially dangerous if it got depressed in an accident? With traditional bindings, if you were to hit the strap area it would be rare to pop off a strap because you'd have to pull against, and with flows you'd have to fall in a way that pulled the high back downward. With the fastec it looks like if the button got pressed you could come kind of loose and maybe twist your ankle. I guess it would be inconvenient, but it would make more sense for that release to be on the inside of the ankle which would reduce the likeliness of the button to get depressed in a fall. Thoughts?

That button is pretty difficult to depress. You have to give it the right pressure to unlock it. Its even more difficult to depress if the strap is on really tight. I found that out with use. I don't see how you could depress that button unless someone hit you and they happen to hit that exact spot on your binding.

that was a nice feature though for long trips up the mountain on chair lifts.

They look pretty sweet. Does the toe cap move around when you unstrap?

How is it that this post is looking dealing with ratchets mainly and NO ONE has mentionewd burton yet? In my opinion they have, hands down the smoothest binding systems out there. The ratchets never come loose unless you want them to, and they can be undone in no time flat. Check out the burton custom binding. You cant go wrong

Gotta agree. Burton ratchets are the smoothest I've ever used.
