Flow Flite 2 Vs. Flow NXT ATs

I currently have a Rissignol Sultan with Flow Flite2 bindings...32 Lashed boots. Just bought a K2 Raygun and plan on using the same boots, but was wondering whether to move my Flite 2s over or move up to the Flow NXT ATs. What would I gain? Are they much lighter? Much better control or is it not going to be noticeable to this 58 year old guy who is mainly into just cruising the blues?

I have a pair of Flow Fives and a pair of NXT-AT's. The Fives are a step or two up from the Flite 2's. Even so, the difference between the Fives and the NXT-AT's is significant. The padding's better on the NXT's, the buckles are more dependable, the adjustments are more convenient. Absolutely worth upgrading if you can afford it.

Haven't tried the Flite 2's but I love my NXT-AT's now if only it would hurry and snow here so I can go out and play!

Thanks guys. Saw the K2 Cinch CTS at a local shop and decided to try them this year instead of sticking to Flows. I like that they operate as a traditional binding as well as a rear entry. I like the easier adjusting once they're on if I so choose, and I like the way the straps tilt up when the back is opened. I realize that both systems have their (+) and (-), but wanted to give these a try. I'll let you know what I think in a few months!

Nothing wrong with Flows I just never felt that secure in them without a real heal cup, I know plenty opf people out in the midwest who love them.

With that said I got a pair of the midgrade K2 cinch's last season uber cheap and I LOVE them, will probably never go back to conventional binders until I build a new split board. I have about 40 days on them without any breakage or visible wear. I use them with Saloman F22 boots.
