Default Flow NXT-ATSE stiffness vs. FRX??

I bought a pair of 2012 ATSE's to go on a 2005 Ride Nation 164(one of my all time favorite boards, but it's finally rode itself out) so I replaced my Ride board with a Berzerker 161. The ATSE seems a little playful for the stick so my question is can anyone tell me if the FRX is significantly more responsive than the ATSE, because I will need to swap equipment regardless so I need to know if the FRX will satisfy me or if Flow's just won't cut it, already have the El Hefe on a 2012 NS Raptor 159. I'm open to suggestions, would like to make Flow's work but if the ATSE is just that loose or if the FRX isn't much better, I need to know so I can sell what I have and get something more responsive.

This is my first pair of Flow's and I heard they ride loose, but DAMN! I can't get used to that.

Well there is a difference between riding loose and "feeling" loose. Flows FEEL loose on your foot cause the strap pressure is distributed better. They should hold just as well as a 2 strap and in my experience transfer energy better heel to toe.

That said, FRX will be noticeably more responsive. You gain a little beefier baseframe, metal heelcup modular highback, and the asym power strap. So, the highback will be stiffer laterally, the strap will give you more oomph on the outside, and the frame is just a bit stiffer overall.

I guess I will see if I can get used to it(I didn't state the problem very well), they are not riding loose they just feel loose, but that is really throwing me off. Will the FRX feel tighter, and just how much more responsive is it?

Not gonna feel any tighter. That's just the way Flows feel. Give it time, took me a few days to really get my head in it. If these are on the Berzerker the ATse's should be a good fit as far as stiffness. The FRX are geared towards boards a bit stiffer than that so I would say try to get used to the feel and the ATse's should be good for you.
