Flow NXT-AT Price

Hello everyone,

I'm new to buying my own gear. I've already gotten a board, but now i'm trying to get some bindings. I've been looking and reading up on the Flow NXT-AT and the NXT-FSE bindings for a while now. I figure that for the price difference between the two, the AT will work for me. What I can't decide on is whether to buy them now or later in the year for additional discount.

Right now they are going for $175 shipped in Large on evo.com, with the additional 10% sale today. That's 50% off of MSRP.

I think this is as low as I've seen it brand new and from a reputable site. I'm not planning on going snowboarding until next season later this year. Will these bindings go any lower brand new? Is it risky to wait or even worth it? Thoughts? Thanks!

Your problem is going to be that when they're out of stock, you're SOL. Then you have to buy next year at full price. Your call. How tight is $$$$?

another good question ( that I dont know the answer to) is what imporovements are they going to make to the 2012 at's that might be worth waiting on? I have 2010 fxt se's and I wish they had 2011ratchets on them. Just from fondling the 2011's at the store I can see that ratchets are greatly improved.

Good point. Money is always tight for me, but not too tight. Just that there's no rush when it comes to using it, since I'll be on the mountain until next season, but I'm thinking the same as you. I don't want them to be out of stock when I'm ready late summer/fall. Though, I hear those awesome deals at the beginning of the season in aug-nov for last season's gear are usually good if someone doesn't have any specific model in mind since it's what's left over. How true is that?

But that's what I kinda wanna hear. That people have waited and lost out and that I shouldn't wait. haha.
Just seems like everywhere I look, store's still have NXT-AT's, unlike the NXT-FSE's. Kinda made me think they will have a lot left over and it may drop to like $130 or something ridiculous. And I still wouldn't have used them by then. heh.

true. It might be worth the wait. Although with improvements comes cost. I think I'll be happy with 2011's. And it might be better for me to be ignorant and not know the improvements of 2012's, or else I'll spend much more! heh.

I'm waiting for some super cheap Ride Contrabands to be on the clearance shelf, in Large. I don't actually need them, so if it doesn't happen I won't be shaking my fists at the heavens. But I'm watching...

I bought my NXT ATSE's 2010 model $150 so that is a good price
You'll like them, I love mine...

I picked up my new NXT-AT's for under $200 and I thought that was a steal. Its not gonna get much better than $175, or if it does, chances are they might be sold out of your size.

Buy them! You'll probably only save like 60% if you wait. If you're saying they have a rebate of 50% now then I would take them right away. Chances are that they'll be sold out if you wait so jump on the opportunity.

I just received my NXT-AT-SE's and to me they were worth every penny. Build quality is amazing. Of course I'm coming from half a decade old Drake's but it's like a completely new level of control and board responsiveness and feel. I love 'em already except for the fact that it took me an entire evening to set them up proper, but the investment in time on the living room floor will pay off on the mountain.
