Default Flow era bindings?

Hey, so i'm planning on buyin a flow era for the next season, and lookin for some good mostly freestyle but some all-mountain bindings to match it up with. I've looked at some from k2 like the hurrithane and the indy, but i'm indecisive. I'm open to other suggestions as well as i am no expert in no way. thanks
Oh, and yeah i have a 10 boot size and still growing, so i'll probably need a larger binding for my feet next season

Flow M9, Raiden Zero's, Rome 390's, Flux TT30's.

That's what I would put on mine if I had one.

If you want my advice from personal experience, do not get the flow era for freestyle boarding. It is a heavy board with very little flex. The carving isn't bad with the flow era, but at high speeds you just don't feel as stable as you do on other boards. For how much you'd spend getting that I'd recommend you do what I do for the next season and get the arbor blacklist with raiden zero bindings. I have been told the blacklist is an amazing board and the bindings come highly recommended as well. If your set on the flow era that's fine just wanted to help out and save you some money if you aren't set on that board.(the blacklist and zeros are a thanks to nivek)

I'm wondering if you were just in bad conditions or got an odd boards cause I rode the Era and really enjoyed it. Made for a really good jump board with some jib capability. It was characteristically stable especially flat basing, and was super smooth in and out of turns. Is the Blacklist better? Yup. But if you more on a budget the Era is one of the best park boards under $400.

Im an indiana resident and board in michigan so I get the worst of the worst conditions and the era was not a good enough board to overcome those issues. Haha so you could be right, it could be a great board but from my experiences with it I didn't have luck

Blame it on conditions. I rode the Agent rocker at the end of the first day at SIA this year and didnt review casue the snow was bein supah weird. Board felt really odd into turn and hooky all over the place. But i'be ridden enough of the camber style to know it was most likely the snow and not the board. Could have been a bad model as it was pre production, but even still. Snow does weird things at -40*.
