Default best quick release bindings?

Im gonna be buying 2 sets of bindings for the 2011 season. Ive had "rear entry" bindings like flows and k2 cinch's before. i hated the flows but the cinchs were good just too heavy. Im looking to get reg bindings but ones where i can get out of real quick. what i mean is theres a tab on the rachets that u hit and the ankle and toe straps come loose. A friend recomended union forces which i think look good but i dont see that quick release tab on the toe strap. Ride's have them on both ankle and top straps but the padding seems too thin. Rome bindings have it and look comfortable but are they good bindings?

Basically i want a strong but light binding that i can get out of quick. I have a board for just the park and another one for bombing the mountian.

check out the rome 390s. they are an all mountain binding that supposedly you can get in and out real fast and its also one of the lightest bindings on the market.

Rome 390 for park

Rome Targa for bombing

Ride Delta for park (actually can be for both because it is middle of the road stiff)

Ride Alpha for bombing... SPI if you like it real stiff (that's what she said)

Also consider K2's Auto line of bindings.

I'm curious, which Flows did you have? What year and model? And what did you dislike about them? I have the 2010 NXT-FSE and they are a sick all-around binding. Very light too.

i have the flow m9. M-9

The rachets suck and hard to break loose. So it was a pain to get out of them. The teeth on the straps started to tear and strip after only a few times in and out of them. Also i had a har time getting them really tight. I can sell them cheap if you want them.

Lol, no thanks. You aren't really supposed to be releasing the ratches to get out of them anyway. Also, Flows aren't supposed to fit as tight as traditional bindings.

Take a look at the bindings that I suggested for you.

By the way, my Flow NXT-FSE > Flow M9

I'd love to get a close-up look at those. The mechanism sounds overly complex.

They are easy to set up. Very easy. I really like those bindings.

I rode Delta's all last season, and quick release ratchets worked flawlessly. Rode midwest ice, a little park, bombed resorts around breck, and some sweet powder on vail pass in them with no problems. Might be a bit on the heavy side compared to the plastic chassis bindings, dunno, never weighed 'em. IMO the metal chassis seems like it would be more durable, I plan on riding them again this season. I can't wait for this fucking HEAT to go away!!

Aren't they all quick release? Takes less than a second to get out of my Forces. Pull the ankle rachet, push then pull the toe ratchet. Boom. It's getting in that takes that little bit longer.
