No I havent yet. It was the plastic part on the upper section.

Hi,

The easiest way to proceed is to send a photo of the damage and your current shipping address to the retailer you purchased from. I will be more than happy to help you with this even if that was not us. That info is then passed on to Flow. Their warranty dept is exceptionally cool and awesome. They genuinely want you to be happy with the product.

You can send that info to wiredsport@wiredsport.com and we will get you squared away.

Which model?

I have just spent the last 4 evenings reading all the posts in this thread

I go boarding with a bunch of skiers, so if I can avoid keeping them waiting, then it is a bonus. I am intermediate level, and do 99% mountain riding, any natural jumps or baby jumps on the park are a possibility for a bit of fun, but not of utmost importance. I have previously had Flow FL-11ís, Flow Pro-11FRís and recently Union Force bindings. The Unions were good, but the toe-strap often slipped when capped. I live in the UK, so only get 1 or 2 weeks a year boarding, so want to maximise the fun when I do go. It looks like a choice between the NX2-AT/SE/GT/RS here in the UK. The AT/SE are £200 (approx. 333 US dollars), the GT/RS are £300 (approx. 500 US dollars), so a significant increase. I am still not sure if the NX2-SE or NX2-AT are right for me. I believe either would suffice, but, still have a few concerns about the toe-strap of the SE, based purely on the comments on this thread. I have size 9 Burton Ambush boots if that helps, which are extremely light, but very wide at the front (the reason I bought them) and would imagine I would want the large binding.

Any comments would be welcome, as I go to Austria in a few weeks.

Also, I would like to say huge thanks to Wiredsport, Solucien, John Doe, Slyder & Nivek for all your contributions here, it makes a big difference to those of us on a limited budget or limited snow. John Doe and Slyder especially, not just for your sheer persistence, but hopefully you have helped to make the 2014/15 product better for all of us

Thanks for all your help. Flow is shipping a replacement part. Thanks

Hi wiredsport, I've read through this thread several times and I wonder if you could clear something up for me as you seem to know these bindings in and out.

Is the difference between the NX2-RS and GT basically just the strap? I noticed in pictures the carbon mesh in the RS modback looks more dense, does that make a huge difference? Is the stiffness essentially the same or is the RS really that much stiffer? And do they weigh the same?

Cheers

Hi,

The biggest difference is the Hybrid Strap (with toe cap) on the GT vs. the "traditional" flow strap on the RS. Next year the two bindings will be merged into the GT only and it will be offered with Hybrid or trad strap.

The top (1/3) of the modback is different and the configuration of the OC Cush on the base is different but in reality those have only a very minor nuance difference in feel and performance (which is why they were merged for next season).

NX2-AT for sure! great overall binding, no hassle with toe-caps, and perfect for the riding that you describe. The RS if you have some extra money to burn; compared to the AT's it has a slightly stiffer top panel on the hiback (with Carbon inlay), the asymmetrical Fusion footstraps for more support, and some more OC-Kush dampening in the footbeds.

Great, thanks for that. I took the plunge last week and ordered the NX2-AT, so it does seem like I made the right choice. They arrive tomorrow Just need Austria to get a bit more snow.
