Still am. Watch that video, see where the boot lands? Not enough toe overhang, so then you try to downsize to get more but the toe strap wont extend enough to allow for downsizing. It's just all wrong. I guess the best way to say it is the bindings are too big for the boot sizes they say fit.

You want close to equal toe/heel overhand, but the thing about heelside is you have the highback to drive into. So less is more acceptable.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

hmm, i always just tried to get my toe ramps all the way out under most of my toes, not that i was ever successful cause my feet are huge.

Learn something new everyday.

I've had Flow Prima's ever since I started boarding. I've never had an issue with them! They are snug, never unbuckle, and more importantly they are stiff which is perfect for freeriding (which i love). I am always the first of my friends who are ready to ride. Setting up was not hard and you never have to do it again once its done. I'm actually looking to upgrade and since you can now notice the wear and tare on them, and since I've had such a great experience with them I'm looking on sticking with Flow. Plus it helps that theyve really advanced their tech this year!

has anyone tried out the roxy rock-it-roll or rock-it-power rear entries?
Roxy ROCK-it ROLL Snowboard Bindings - Women's 2013 | evo

i've been looking for rear entries for awhile now as well. i'm beginning-intermediate i would say. i was going to get the flow prima 2013 but they're too stiff for my taste and the flow minx-se doesn't have the new NASTY tech or the cant. i saw some good k2 tryst 2012 models for a good price but i hear the performance on them isnt that good? is that true? they're canted right?

I'd get last years Essence if you really wanna save money. However the upgrades for this year are phenomenal. Those real ratchets are great. You can still get out and back in like a regular binding with last years using the mini ratchtes, but he full ratchets on this years are just that much better.
Thank you all for the tips!! I'm going to the Windy City ski/snowboarding show so I'll def keep my eyes open for both 2011/2012 and 2013 models and try them on.

I do not like Flow, but if you're stuck on rear-entry bindings, just go them. Personally I just don't get the point of combining a traditional 2 strap system with the rear-entry like they do with Bent Metal, Roxy, and K2 bindings. Extra weight, more slop, having to re-position the ankle/toe strap each time you put it on...kind of reduces the possible benefits of rear-entry.

Wink Thank you all

So I went to the Windy City Ski/snowboard show and ended up with the k2 cinch... for $40 dollars... brand new! I thought I'd buy it just to try it out... and if it doesn't fit I'll sell it on ebay or something. Almost paid 100 for the exact same one...

The problem I run into now is that it's very tight w/ my new boots.

Anyway to fix that?
