As promised, here at some pictures of my silver/green NX2-AT I just got in from WiredSport! These things are awesome. Nice and light, and feel the same weight as my 2012 Rome 390 Boss bindings. Made a couple videos of the NASTY strap, new ratchets, and my first kick-in to show what its like. It wasn't one and done as you will see, but I expect it to be easier on the mountain with some snow/water to make it slide better. These are size L, boots are K2 Maysis size 10. Let me know if you have any questions, or want specific pics.
Thanks Flaus. That settles it for me. I'm getting the NX2-SE's. I'm a little worried about losing that zero pressure feel of the normal strap but with our man made snow here it can be weirdly dry at times making it hard to get in.
One suggestion from the video. When your boot is kicked in, lift the highback a little and put your full weight on your heel. It will slide you right in to the perfect spot. Just trying to lift the back will make it much harder. The gummy rubber on the heel sole of your boot can make this a little sticky in your (warm) home but in the cold and with the moisture from snow, ice, pow, etc. it is very slick.
Ordered a pair of Large NXT-GT2's from a store near me that decided to stock them even though they said the wouldnt. Only in L though but free return so no problem :P
The thing is that one thing that annoyed med with my old AT-SE was that felt a little big, a bit to much space betweeen the side of the binding and the boot, and sometimes on the slope it felt like the boot was sliding to one side... Got the same feeling here which is why I wanted to go with the medium size, and Im thinking of returning these and ordering a Medium.
Took couple of photos, hope you understand what I mean.
