Hi HoboMaster,

If you rode the early ones from Flow (like these protos from 1995), you would have had a mixed experience:



If you strap in to these NXT-AT-SE's, or the other sick new models from 2011, prepare for a blown mind:

so... yeah... well, i picked up my board and boots and bindings used 10 years ago, the boots blew, only used them for a season, got new Burton's, the bindings were a pain (mainly that backside support) but i didn't have much money back then, so i figured if i get stiffer boots and just take that thing off maybe that will work, my boots are Burton's not sure what kind, they say Bone Out on the front of the tongue and have the number 77 on the inside of the tongue (along with other sizing and made in china stuff). Here are pictures of my boots and bindings (i know this will make you laugh)



It seems to work out, but what the hell do i know, it's the only way i have ever done it... well now i have some $ and am going to do this thing right... thats why i have been reading tons on this forum (much thanks)

i am getting the NS Heritage board http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...-new-deck.html

plan on taking my boots to the shop seeing about fit for the following bindings:
Flow (FIVE, M11, M9)
Rome Targa
K2 Drone
Ride SPi
Union Force
Flux TT30

so honestly i dont have a clue but figure i better get one, and a good setup, finally

sry for the thread hi-jack - all feedback welcome, especially on bindings (i am an all mountain freerider pow hunter - NO terrain park)

Oh man, you are going to be stoked when you buy a new pair of bindings, those things are dinosaurs

Hey! A Sandpointian! I used to live in California, and moved here about 3 years ago after discovering it was the most badass place I've ever been. It's not the easiest making a living here since Idaho is a "Right to Work (For Nothing)" State and the economy is in shambles, but if you can make it happen this place has everything an outdoor enthusiast could ever want.

Come back sometime and ride Schweitzer, they've added quite a few upgrades in the past 5 or so years, so it's probably even better then you remember.

Man, can't go wrong with a Heritage. I ended up getting an Evo for this season to learn freestyle with, but that is for sure going to be my next board.

HAHAHAHA Those '95 Flows crack me up, WTH is up with those long ass bolts sticking out of the side?? Looks like something the good Dr. Frankenstien cobbled together in his spare time. On the other hand the '11's look sick, cool to see how far they have come.

Mountainman, for sure time for a new set up

Yup, UGLY. But that is how prototyping goes. Set'm up so you can test'm, break'm down, rebuild'm better and then test again. Recessed hardware, etc comes much later.

We carried the first brown bindings with the sperm logo the next year and rode them. They were the beginning, but had some probs too. The new models are freaking unreal. Rear entry, conventional side entry, on the fly tuning, ergo everything. The most refined bindings on the market...strong as hell, best warranty to back it up.

If you are a freerider you want these NXT-FRX:

You will be. You have been riding zero support bindings and making up for it with overly stiff boots. When you switch to a modern, supportive boot with a highly adjustable binding, you will be shocked...but in a good way. The FRX allows a ton of adjustability, so you can dial the stiffness down a lot...or not. In fairness you do not need to spend that much (coming from where you were) to notice a huge improvement. The basic Flite 2's would suffice.
