Rear entry binding

Hey i just got a new board and i decided its time to go with some better bindings as well. i am really tired of strapping up all the time and would like to invest in a rear entry binding. can some one give me some pointers on some cost freindly bindings. (I am not pro so they dont need to be top of the line.

Ok so i have been looking at the K2 cinch bindings and the flows. and it seems more people lean to the k2 because the traditional 2 strap system. but both have less lift at the toe and since i wear a size 12 boot with a regular width board would that be a issue in the long run?

While you may think rear entry is awsome new tech, think about this. Do you ride by yourself and do all your other friends have rear entry? I think part of the whole riding experience is taking the lift up and getting off with your boys or girl whatever, chillin and strapping in, have a laugh or two and ride out. You will still be waiting for everyone else to strap in and your only going to be seconds faster then everyone else...... Just take that into mind.

honestly a lot of people wont agree with me, but go with the k2 cinch series bindings whichever ones you like, i have the 2009 CTC and i love them, i just started snowboaidng last year and dont have Hill experience with anything else, have tried some indoor rails and boxes with contrabands, and i like my cinchs more, it helped me because in the contrabands being a beginner rider i didnt feel as secure in the binding, i mean i know i was secure but the traditional two stra binding i liked because of the feel, they ae really comfy and so easy to strap into. i get what the guy above me is saying, but i just found it annoying when i was renting two years ago to have to sit down and strap in and struggle with the ratchets and such, i still strap in and wait for all my buddies, but i like it WAY more, so i would recommend the K2 cinchs overall, either the CTC or if you wanna spend a little more the CTXs

Flow pioneered it, they do it best.

Go with some Fives or Quattro's.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

My boys and I all have the Flows for this year. Since we mainly ride together, we will all be in and off quickly.
The kids have "the 5" and other are M9's and I have NXT ATSE's.
I only have 1 year riding experience and our season won't start for another few weeks. But the "I" power strap feels good just sizing them up. Good all over pressure as opposed to the 2 strap. My foot got sore some times.

I'll post more after we see some snow time with them. The kids were both under $150 for the "5's" and M9's mine were $150 but got on close-out usually much more.
