Flux sizing question

Looking for info from anyone who has used a size 10 Nike boot in a size large Flux binding. I've got a pair of SF45s in medium, and they fit great with my 10 Kaijus, but I have to use the disk to center the binding on the board. I want to buy a 2nd pair for use on another board, but I can't get a comfortable stance on that board without using the disc to micro-adjust side to side. I'm wondering if a large would solve the centering problem, or if it would just take me too far in the other direction since I'm on the low side of the size range. Flux says the difference in length between the 2 sizes is 1.5 cm, so I suspect I'd be too far the other way. Also a little worried about the base plate being too wide.

Do not buy the large for a size 10. I have a size 10 and a flux large and I have to put the holes all the way forward to center the boot and the bottom of the toe ramp hangs off over the edge and that's on a 25.5cm waist. I went to the store to try the mediums and they fit much better with no over hang. Now I'm trying to sell my large so I can downsize.

I run size 10 DC's on my SF 45's and found my boots to fit perfectly in the Mediums. I ride a Forum Conflict with a waist width of 25.5, and it's a great combination for me. I don't think a large sized binding will benefit you because you will still have the same mountaing disc, only with more length on the heel and toe, and a wider base, which would not be good. Just mess around with adjusting the heel and toe ramps, and I'm sure you'll be able to find a comfortable stance.

Thanks, this was really helpful info. Have to be able to adjust side to side with the discs for this particular board, so I'll be sticking with Targas. Flux really needs to offer an offset disc.

I sent them an email about a month ago telling this and they replied like they had no idea what I was talking about...so I gave up. I love the comfort and response flux offers but with limited stance options I think I'll be riding my Unions from now on.

Yeah, I emailed them a few weeks back asking if they had them, and totally had to explain what it was that I was talking about. I don't think a company can get away with selling a high-end unibody binding without offering these. They're bound to be losing a lot of sales, and it would be so easy to offer.

Yup, it's the only reason I'm going to pass on flux from now on. If I can find a board with the holes around 24" I'll probably be picking up either the tt or sf45 this year, but right now the holes on my board are 23.5 and 24.5. and without offset disks i'm stuck with only those 2 options.

In this day and age, who doesn't offer offset discs? That's crazy. Well...I guess I'll be going back to picking up a pair of 390 boss's.
