Flow NXT-FRX

Those of you that already know, i was ordering new bindings from the extreme foot pain and process of elimination so:

Just picked these up today, went through the set up vid on the Flow website, and off to the local hill i go.
first run like everyone else that has tried them i am sure, was a little different, but made it down the hill.
From the second run on, it was life changing! i had the most amazing time tonight! these bindings are so stiff and had amazing response! I can't believe what a difference these are compared to my technines!

thanks to all those for the advice, and i would def say if you are looking at these to get em!
i will update after a mountain ride! hopefully next week sometime.

Maybe NXT-FRX bindings are stiff, nevertheless skilled son of a gun like me can make it softer



now i sit and think about where i can get new strap. I bought it 14 months ago so no warranty. And no spare parts in retail. Sad but true.

My experience with Flow customer service has been excellent. Find their email addy on their web site and send them a nice letter telling how much you love your Flows and how bummed you are to be out of commission; when my high-back cable broke they responded within a few hours and sent me TWO complete cable assemblies. You're not out of luck yet. The addy on their site might be generic. If you don't hear back, pm me and I'll send you the addy of the person who helped me (sorry, not right to publish her addy on a board without her ok).

Ouch...Moscow could be an issue! LOL. I don't know what to tell you. Maybe buy a used pair on e-bay and keep 'em for spare parts? I've found having spare parts on hand is essential with Flows.

Do you know how much is NXT-FRX in Moscow? More than $550! And this is the issue, really.
However, I can send to them a post address in California, where mother-in-law's schoolmate live.

I just had the same problem with one of my flows. Older model NXT-FS from the 08 season. I got them brand new at the end of last year so they are still under warranty. They are going to give me a new pair of what ever ones I choose and I think I am going to try the FRX. Props to thier support on my end...

I was just on the phone with the warranty department and talking about this thread. Flow is trying to find your email so they can help you out with this. They have been SUPER helpful with me so hopefully all works out well on your end too!

Thank you very much! I don't have a word to express my thanks to you. Flow Warranty Team ask me for address and cellular this morning.
