I assume this is possible but I will ask anyway. I already have 2 pairs of 2010 nxt-at bindings, if I buy the new model with the toe cap and prefer the older style power strap will I be able to swap the old power strap onto the new chassis?

Just buy with the strap you want. 2 of the new models will come with the toe cap hybrid (GT and SE) and 2 will come with the traditional strap (RS and AT).

With what's added how does it effect the weight? Is it going to make them quite a bit heavier or will they be about the same.

I realise that but how do I magically know which one I want? I already have the power strap so my logic is to go toe cap and then swap it back to the nxt-at power strap if I find I dont like the toe cap. If it will work hence my original question.

This is my debate as well and this still hasn't been answered. I may just call Flow directly tomorrow...
Wired do you know if on the 2013 you can use either power strap and then swap on a toe cap version as long as both are from 2013 models???

I'm thinking you can I watched the video at 3:05 you can see both bindings and they use the same holes just different ladders and strap so I might buy the toe cap and order the power strap

AT = AT (all mt.)
Yes. Flow is Calling the RS All Mountain and the other 3 All Mountain Freestyle. Your corresponding bindings above are correct.

No scale handy but these guys are very light. We will shoot to do a weigh in when production models are received in late summer/early fall.

FYI
if both are 2013 NX2models, you can swap straps at will
if you want to swap straps from an older (NXT) model onto the 2013, it's not possible due to use of different ladderstraps and ratchets/buckles configuration

GorgeDad, your comparison 012-NXT > 013-NX2 matchup is correct
AT > AT (allmountain)
ATSE > SE (allmountain-freestyle)
FRX > RS (responsive, allmountian freeride)
FSE > GT (luxury sport, allmountain)
and there is a women's version of the AT too: Prima (allmountain)

weight is close to the same, depending per model

That'd be interesting.... or put them on a balance scale with the same size prior year just to see if they're heavier or lighter. Not that its likely a significant change. Just don't tell my they weigh a ton cause i've already convinced myself I'm buying them!

I will play with this a bit in Denver and let you know. At least the two toe ladder straps and the powerstraps would need to be swapped. I am not sure if accessory kits will be readily available if at all and the colors are pretty disctintive so...
