Which flows for banana magic?

Looking to try some flows this year and am wondering which would work best on the banana magic, price isn't an issue because I will be getting a major discount. I am going to be mostly on groomers free riding. What do you guys think?

Or FRX as well. But dirty little secret........M9's M11's and lower take less maintenance. And yes I'm the shop guy who does the repairs

The M base isn't enough for what he wants out of that board. It's too soft.

I have M9's and NXT's As an x-hard boot racer I don't find the M-9's too soft at all. But I only weight around a 160 pounds And hardly ever ride faster than 40 miles an hour these days.
But Im a little confused on the what he wants out of a banana magic part. It's a rocker board. if you said Arbor A frame I could see the point.

Just cause It's rocker doesnt mean its soft and built to go fast and be freeridy. M9's made a good all mountain binding for me at 145lbs, someone bigger will flex it more and will want more. That's why I say bump up to NXT for the aluminum baseplate.

What do you guys mean by more maintenance?

Also what is the difference between the fse and frx?

Thanks!

The higher end flows have more exposed hardware which can come loose I call this maintenance because this is true for all bindings regardless of brand. The FRX cost the same as the FSE but is more orientated towards hard free riding while the FSE is billed as a all arounder. Unless your a really big and heavy guy or just have money to blow look at the M9 and M11 as well because the difference in ride is minute.
hope this helps I have three pairs of flows myself NXT AT, NXT ATSE, and M9 I would not ride anything else. there more comfortable than straps and so much quicker to get in and out of.
