I have an old pair of K2 Cinch that I'm thinking of replacing with the NXT2-SE. I can get them for about $180. Good deal?

That is so 2011. Kidding. The NXT was awesome but there have been some very worth upgrades in the newer Fuses and NX2's. If you can swing it...

Great binding ride wise. Issue I had is that part of the high back (plastic part) snapped off from the screws when I was flipping them up. Make sure to pull from the back lever when strapping in not the high back. Silicon and putting the screws back in fixed the prob but come across as flimsy to me. But as a said great flexible ride! Nx2-SE I'm referring to

I had the same thing happen to me last year with the nx2-se on my second day and the high back got lost somewhere on the mountain. Luckily I was able to return them to dogfunk.

I ordered this years nx2-at's and it doesn't seem as flimsy as the nx2-se from last year.

Luckily (or unluckily) mine broke in my hand. First run of the day too but went and had them repaired and smashed beers while I waited lol

I'll get it correct one of these posts... I'm looking at the NX2 ES and the NX2 GT.

I work ski patrol, and having a quick in/out binding is a must. We get a good deal from Flow. I believe $180 and $200. Is the NX2 GT worth the extra $20? ($200 total)

Got it. You are getting an amazing Ski Patrol deal. STOKED. The bindings are very similar so no wrong answers. In terms of ride you will feel very subtle differences.

Seems I got in on a similar santa deal from flow.
called them asking about the nx2 and fuse line.

I have k2 cinch ctx, there is really alot i like about the adjustability of the bindings but they are heavy and my arms get so sore from locking and unlocking the bindings all day.
it is a real chore.

searching for something easier I tried the 2013 gnu weird bindings, and after a week using them I am sending them back.
They are easier to snap in but

I have 2 issues with them

1. boot toe never seems to get in toe cap securely, no matter how i adjust. since toecap is at a fixed height, i can only move forward or back

2. trying to get them on or off on an slope, is a chore, since the latch goes 90 to the ground and prevents them from fully opening


I called flow asking for info on two models
the fuse-se and the nx2-se i was interested in each because of the canted footbeds.
(a must for me as I have bad knees)
and the hybrid toe cap, which seems to solve the issue i had with the Gnu's



I explained my issues with their competitions bindings one by one, to see if they were different. I also asked if there was any 2013 models since my budget is limited, they could not find any in stock
Since they could not they hooked me up for xmas with a deal of all deals on an nx2-se.
I am so stoked
I am hopefull that i will finally find an easy in easy out binding.

Even if they don't work out I will never bad mouth flow as they are a real stand up company who stands behind their product and willing to go the extra mile to help some one out
