The top panel on the mod back is very flexible but on the whole it is still more of a power binding than the Five due to the aluminum usage. The Five SE and the M9 are very similar with the differences being the flex in the top panel and the design of the surf strap.
So if I understand correctly:
The FIVE SE and the M9 are as an overall feeling quiet similar?
Any reason to choose the one over the other?
I had 2010 or 2011 M9's in Large but my boot (32 Lashed FT in Size 43EU) was little too wide for those. Very, very snug fit. I now passed those to the misses board as she also has wide boots (32 Prion FT in Size 38EU) but at least the width is ok. (Needed some tuning to get her boots fitting perfectly, by advancing the highback, but I think that worked out)
Better to diss out some more bucks to get the NXT with the NASTY system?
I'm spending half of my boarding-time teaching youngsters, the rest is all-mountain trickery :-)

The Five SE and the M9 are very similar with the differences being the flex in the top panel and the design of the surf strap. These are going to be softer flexing models than any of the NX2's. Nasty is amazing. There are so many Flow models to hopefully meet the needs of most riders. Deciding...now that is your job

Thanks for the input. I'm quiet used to the little more flex, so don't see that as being a problem. Sizing is more a problem.
Any comments tips on the correct size? Allready had my same experience with 32 boots? Should I go for an XL?
Pricing is NASTY also...

43 is typically a size 10 US which is typically a Large Flow binding. But...boot manufacturers can do some whacky things If your boots are too wide or bulky for Large go XL.
