All three of us are sporting Flow's
I love mine, but as I get better I do notice that they are a bit stiffer. That won't inhibit me as I'm so new to the sport it doesn't matter. But I may get a more park board with softer bindings for those park only days, We'll see...

You'll be happy with them

hell ya, thanx ! you made me feel so much better about getting them lol, I didnt have a response quick enough so i just bought them before they were out of stock. IM SO HAPPY !

I run the shittiest 6 year old beginner gear ever and I can do lots of stuff. spins off of jumps, my biggest kicker was 45 feet, I do rails, boxes, steep black diamonds, trails, the whole package. Gear really means nothing. the gear doesn't make the rider, the rider makes the gear.

andreas true, but many of us newbies still want to make good equipment decisions within our budgets. Being newer to the sport we often ask for opinions of you more experienced riders as you have tried it, heard of it or broke it.

I got opinions on my banana, many people don't like them. Reviews were good and bad. I researched and still bought it thinking it would fit my needs/ability, I got a good price and I truly enjoy it.

nah this isnt a poser thing at all, here let me explain. Aite, here is the list of sports i used to do " starting from first to last" football/baseball/basketball, dirt jumping, bull riding, sky diving, rappelling/rock climbing, pc games " pc games led to me gaining 100 lbs, no joke" The only reason i quit rock climbing is because i slipped like 200' in the air, my knee saved my life, literally. Skydiving is odd, once i would get home i would be doing something " bathroom, watching tv w.e" and i would realize that i just cheated death lol... I have always wanted to snowboard, i would literally forget it existed in the summer, and by time winter came by I wouldnt want to buy 1500+ in gear..

I bought all of this gear becasue I AM going all season long, sounds gay, but i just want to carve....... We all have to start somewhere i guess, the only reason i started with what i have is because I want the best set up i can get, later down the line I might buy some ns stuff or what not, but I feel " besided my bindings" that i have a total newb rig, totally set up for my weight, shoe size, etc.

If it wasnt for this forum, i would be rockin a 145 cm board @ 240 lbs, with total heel lift, uncomfy boots, gaper gap, wearing jeans, with my bindings on backwards lol....

I just need something to do in the winter tbh, this looks like something to look forward to when its crappy outside.

I totally screwed my self with these flow bindings, I was reading that i shouldnt use them until i acquire say 20 days of board time. I mounted them on my board, lifted the high back and locked in , pretended like i was heel side..... I totally fell backwards on my carpet.. IM CARVING THE LIVING ROOM !!!

All joking aside, I should have got rentals, I dont even know if the mounting disc's are in the right spots, i went totally center with them, i mean i spread them out on my board to a comfy stance where my knees are naturally bent forward, but I didnt like off set the front or back, i need to l2read more...

don't really follow the above comment....

Your overhang will be the same on any binding. Do you have it to far forward or backward???
Your width may need adjusting after you've been to the hill and you find it is not enough or to much.

Thought I read a good width starting point was the outside width of your shoulders is the inside width of your bindings but you will need to verify that. I personally ride a little more narrow, that is where my comfort is at. I am trying 1" wider this season as I moved my bindings out when I prepped my board for storage this year.

I too totally hate when I catch an edge in the living room and bounce off the coffee table. Nasty bruise....

No I totally realize it, I'm just saying that it's not going to break you if you buy gear you don't like. I need to buy all new gear now anyway buy nice or buy twice!

Its not the width problem as much as i can move my bindings closer toe side, or heel side. i just put them center, i did not move them closer to toe side or heel side. I mean the width may be a problem, but once i get to play around with them on the hill, I think i might be able to find the right spot for me
