Why would you not ride something becuase its too hyped up? Thats like saying your not gonna eat the best pizza in the world after trying it once becuase it has too much hype even tho its deliciouse. If it feels good and better then the bindings your useing then get them who cares about hype.

Thats Just my opinion anyway im in no way a pro binding guy but i personally woupd take the ones that felt best no matter what, even if they were poop brown.

Depends what you like the feel of more, they're very different bindings. I'm picking up a pair of Flow NXT-ATSE's next week. If you get the flows go with the se's having only the two ratchets makes setting them up and dialling them in a little easier.

Sii, as you may have seen, there are many threads re the Flow bindings and some VERY animated debate over them! Not all good hype, though many of the naysayers never rode them or rode them once.

I will throw my 2 cents in because I am 2 weeks (3 riding days) into a new pair of Flow NXT-FSEs adn I love them. Comfort-wise, they are the most comfortable bindings I've ever used (been riding 25 years) and the ease of rear entry is an added bonus - no sitting on your ass to buckle in!

Not sure what kind of riding you do. I notice the Flows have great heel/toe response, but are a little "soft" tip to tail. As a mostly freeriding all mountain guy, that works for me, because they carve nicely. If you are doing lots of tricks, in the park, etc. they may not the best option, IMHO.

The Flows are light and very adjustable (a pro and/or a con, depending on whether you don't mind fiddling with them a bit to set them up). To give a balanced perspective, the only downside I've experienced so far is that i find the mini-ratchets not that great. Theoretically, you don't need to use them as much since you aren't buckling in all the time, but they still seem a little weak to me.
