How old is this information? I have two sets of Flow bindings (Fives and NXT-AT) and I've never had anything break on either set. Really, any brand of binding can break. It becomes an issue if there's a systemic problem with a specific design, like there was with the Ride Nitranes a couple of years back. Ride stepped up and replaced all the bad straps, and now Nitranes are ok and Ride's reputation is better for it.

I seem to remember someone saying Flux had poor support for their bindings, but I wouldn't swear to it. Flow AFAIK is fine, and there are no systemic issues with any specific models. I was just watching the snowboard jump competitions in Spain on TV the other day and I noticed two of the competitors were using Flows (pretty sure -- quick-entry bindings anyway).


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

That's the exact combo I use.
