Rocker Bindings (NXT) on Camber Boards

Wasn't sure whether to post on the Board or Binding forum, but I'll try here.

I am looking at Flow Bindings with some rocker built into the baseplate. Flow says it works with Rocker or Camber boards. While I am sure they would not have made this claim if untrue, I wonder if there are any drawbacks? Would this type of binding conflict with a Camber or hybrid Camber between legs Rocker on tip and tail?

Thanks!

I'm not sure but I don't think the two have anything to do with each other. The rocker on the binding just allows the board to flex more naturally. Nothing to do with the camber profile of the board. I don't think.

M9's had rockered bases before rockered boards.

jdang's right, the rockered base of the Flow binding creates a responsive contact interface with the board but has nothing to do with the shape - rockered, cambered or otherwise - of the board. They can functional equally well on either type of board.

One other point given your original question: one percieved trade-off with the Flows, with which i am in agreement (i ride on Flow NXT-FSEs) is that they are little softer when you are flexing your board tip to tail. So while the heel/toe response makes for great carving, they are not everyone's first choice for hard core park riding where you may be buttering, etc.

All in all though, IMO, you won't find a more comfortable binding. The easy entry is nice, too.

Thats good, my #1 priority is heel/toe response, 2nd would be comfort, and much lower down my personal priority list is ease of entry. I ordered the NXT AT by the way for all mountain riding and barely do any park.
