I own a pair of Fives and a set of NXT-AT's. There's not a lot of difference. The NXTs look better, have better padding, couple of other extras, but the basic design is the same. My Fives have a pretty inconvenient highback lean adjustment -- that's probably the biggest practical difference. But setting up the NXTs was dead easy since I was already used to the Fives.
Aiidoneus has already mentioned the biggest mistake with setting up Flows -- making them too tight. They don't need to be cranked down because the H strap covers so much of the boot. With my Flows, I can kick my back foot in while skating down off the chair, lean down and snap the back up, and continue down the hill without ever stopping. It should be that effortless.
