Also, the Large Burton bindings look about the same length as the Unions in the same size, if not then longer.

If you're foot size says 14, it probably is. Different brands have different sizing. I should have checked this before getting my boots in size 14:
Before trying on a new pair, make sure you've been walking around a lot that day so that the blood in your feet is circulating well and they've "expanded", because that will happen while snowboarding and will help make sure you don't get your boots a size too small. After this, when you try on a pair of boots for the first time, your toes should be just touching the ends. There should be no "extra space" between your toes and the liner; they should just fit snug, but not so you're in any kind of discomfort. Over time, the liner should loosen up a little and give you some extra room.

No offense to your boots...but DC is a pretty bad brand for anything involving snowboarding (in my opinion). This is because they try to make all they're products feel more like skateboarding, and always try to relate and make snowboarding more similar to skateboarding. They just don't get that snowboarding is purely it's own thing and they can't take that away... and their stuff isn't very durable from what I've seen in reviews! If you can't find better boots though, they should be fine!

I hope that helps.

My toe strap broke on my nx2-se's in 2 days on the mountain, send flow an email 4 days ago, still no response... really hoping they send me out a replacement strap because i love these bindings, they feel so solid when you're locked in. It's a little hard to get your foot in and out of the binding because the hiback catches your heel when you try to lower it down or pull it up. but other than that the bindings feel solid. 2 days is rediculous however and i really hope flow realizes this for such an expensive binding.

Quick quiz. Can anyone name a single binding with the rubbery webbing that hasn't had more failures then it should. I sure as hell can't name one.

Let's get a look at it. Please post up a picture of the damage. I will be happy to get you a part. Flow typically is lightning fast on this stuff. What email did you use?

I sent it to info@flow.com this may be the wrong email, i found it under contact us on flow.com.

my email is blitzkrieg5049@yahoo.com best to contact me that way, I really appreciate you helping me out or if you could get me the correct email for flow. Thank you so much Wiredsport

here's some pix of the damage its the left binding, size large toe strap. it's kind of hard to see but the hard plastic part is completely seperated and all thats holding the strap together for now is the soft spongy rubber.

Based on numerous reviews I've read, Flow has a tendency to NEVER respond to their customers emails. I was going to buy a pair but this (along with other reasons) is what ultimately stopped me.

Good luck, I hope they actually respond to you. Try calling them by phone if they don't, or return them to wherever you bought them from if you still can.

Nope, neither can I. Ride also has them, but they also break. I think there are some other brands that used to do them but have now stopped.

The problem is that in cold conditions they become harder and less flexible, making them more prone to snap and break. That plus the constant stretching and the flex limitations caused by not being able to hold much stress. (think about stretching a rubber band. When it turns white from stress, it stays that way and is fragile from there on because it is near breaking point).

Hi Babyyak,

Thanks for the photos. That is definitely a warranty and it will get taken care of promptly. The email address you sent to is not correct. The best way is to use the form here:

FLOW Snowboarding | Warranty

Have you contacted the retailer that sold these to you? They will also likely be able to send you the part. If those two things don't get you a quick solution, we will be happy to send you the part.
