Our rep was not aware of an issue, I displayed it on a binding by manually forcing the strap through the ratchet, he inquired how that would happen while riding, I offered some possibilities that were mentioned here, he asked if we were getting complaints from our customers, I told him that we were not but that there were some mentions from the online community, he said he would bring it up with the design team.

This and many other points in this thread have been noted, and are addressed;

- The LSR ratchet-buckle locking will improve and be more consistent among all buckles.
- The Hybrid toe-ladders will increase in length to accommodate more boot-sizes, and the V-toe (Y-shaped) medial ladder will get a slightly steeper angle for a better toecap strap fit. As can be seen in the how-to video's, you can also swap the toecaps and ride them more over-the-toe instead of the in-front-of-toe positioning.
- Stronger SupportPanels, and less sharp bottom edge.
- Stronger baseplate-insert for footbed adjustment-screw.
- Footbeds are now dual-density EVA BankBeds for more cushioning.
- EVA-pad underneath the mounting-disk.
- Extra ankle-ladderstrap position on the NASTY heelcup for increased individual adjustments.

For 2013, the NX2's will be lighter, better and nasty-er!!!

Just got back from 2 weeks of riding, and I have to say Im in love with my NX2-GT's

Only encountered one problem, and I can't really figure out how to solve it.

I have the bindings set up exactly the same, same angles, same settings on all straps and I still get a bit of looseness on my right foot around the heel. Not enough to be a problem but enough to be a little annoying. Even with a lot of forward lean on my right foot I still get this problem. Any thoughts?

Will I be able to get these updated buckles through warranty so my current NX2 bindings work as advertised with out me having to jerry–rig them?

john, damn dude, give it a REST.... Call flow for god's sake. Wired sport is a vendor, not the mfg.

We all know you're not happy. None of us can fix it. FLOW can.

Certainly! Just email warranty@flow.com at the beginning of next season, and they will be available for you!
Sorry for your troubles this season, and stoked you are such a loyalist. Mention my name 'Solucien' in your email and you'll get hooked up!

Awesome. I'll get the new ratchets next fall and if they work I'll be buying a set of the Fuse bindings as well.

If you're referencing me and my incessant presence in this thread then just remember that I was right. I was not the only one with the issue and Flow felt the issue was enough to redesign the ratchets. Through the whole thread I also made every effort to help other people with their questions and problems. I never told anyone to not buy these bindings. I knew the fix was easy and that was all I wanted.

As you said this is the last weekend for boarding in St. Louis and, not to long after, this forum will be a distant thought until next Fall. Just letting you know that so you don't have to worry about me going around being right and other crazy shit.
