Flow NXT-FSE = 2 lbs 4.8 oz

Flow Quattro SE = 2 lbs 2.37 oz

Flight 2 Men's = 2 lbs 3.1 oz

Rome 390 = 2 lbs 2.32 oz

Union Force = 2 lbs 2.44 oz


Impressive! I'll be getting the NX2-SE. Thanks!

That seems late. Flow is still expecting them tomorrow. There can be some turnaround time but it is typically much shorter than 20 days.

I have pretty much locked on to purchasing the Flow Five-SE bindings for my new NS Cobra. I've always liked Flow quick entry tech, just did not like the fact that they did not incorporate a toe cap. That is no longer an issue with this year's line up. I also like the new tweaky highback's. I totally understand the reasoning for the new highbacks. My question is are they rigid enough to give a firm feel with hard carving during all mountain riding?

The metal base of the highback/heelcup does well to provide support and performance, but for a Cobra I would just recommend the NX2 SE's. Full aluminum is going to do much better than 15% glass/poly frame on the Fives.

Thumbs up Nx2-at

Just rode the NX2-AT on a Nitro T1 2013... Awesome! The binding is really great, quick entry with very good response. I really don't regret that I didn't take the NX2-SE .. I think the classic flow strap with ratchets like on the AT is much better than this new toe strap what ever thing of e.g the SE.

The Five SE is very upgeaded this year in that it gets the mod back. That back is extremely responsive. Only the very top section is Tweak 6 which will not compromise the carvability of the back. This is still a major back!

What would be better on a Era? M9 or Nx2se ? It'll be mostly for park and medium kickers (20 to 30 I think that's big at least for me ) Im not sure about the new strap on the nx2 but I want the binding with chanting and nasty which the m9 does not have.

Hi,

Consider the AT. It has the cant and the nasty you are looking for without the toe strap (it sounds like you would prefer not to have it). This thing feels EPIC when you clamp in.
