flow nxt-fse or nxt-frx

I usually tend to like stiff bindings, but it seem like the frx have a different strap setup and maybe even different base plates than the well reviewed fse.

Is there really a lot of difference in the two or is it just the stiffness level? I really like the reviews on the fse but haven't seen much about the frx and can't really tell if they are much different.

The FRX will definitely be stiffer, but the FSE is a medium flex freeride binding. The strap is slightly diferent, I think it's asymetrical. Considering that both are top of the flow line bindings, and the kind of edge to edge response found on flows, I'd go with the FSE. The FRX is more suited to big mountain or uber responsive needs. You won't be dissapointed with the FSE

Unless you are tackling some big mountains and doing a lot of freeriding, don't get the FRX. Oh, also unless you just love super stiff and responsive bindings.

The FRX is suited for directional freeride boards.

I know allot of folks that really like flows and they make a solid binder but I never felt secure with their setup as I like my binders uber tight.

Last year myself and a previous flow loyalist both purchased K2 "Cinch" bindings and I'll never ride anything else unless your talking splitboards. Cinches are super fast and easy to get in and out felt more secure than any flows I ever demo'd but then again I ride Saloman boots when have a small outside shell making getting in and out of "fast" binders much easier.

Good luck
