got a pair of 2011 Flow NXT-FSE bindings and I got only screws with them and no washers. It doesn't seem right to mount them without washers with the mounting disc being made from aluminum. There is also a picture of the screws with washers in the instruction sheet. Washers from my old bindings don't fit in the grooves around the holes on the disc. Any thoughts?
I have the 2010 models and they definitely came with washers. However, when I was demoing the 2011 models, the rep gave me a set of screws with built in washers. Sorry if I'm offending you, but the simplest answer is often the most accurate.
If that is not the case, just give Flow a call and they'll happily send you the washers or screws with washers built in. In fact, you should do that anyway so you have a spare set!
I just got some replacement disc in from Flow the other day...no washers, just screws. I think someone at the factory is sleeping on the job. From what I can tell, there are supposed to be washers (screws are too long otherwise).
Ya, I guess that's the type of screws I should've gotten with my FSE's. Thanks for posting the pic.
I tightened the bindings on the board few times while setting them up the other day and I can already see marks on the disk made by a screw head cutting into aluminum so those are definitly ment to be used with washers.
