yeah, I think when i was picking boots, I was picking for the wrong reason. I was wanting ones with a small imprint. I held up 10.5 Burtons with 10.5 Salomons and and the Burtons were an inch smaller. I went with the Burtons to get less toe and heel drag. I learned my lesson. But I think we finally got the boots set up with the proper support. When I go up again and the boots still don't work, I will probably look at new boots, ones with more ankle support.

Not trying to knock the NX2s, they are great bindings. Just need to get the right setup for me. I think I want to try a non canted pair since that is what I am used to riding. Riding a 20 year old board and now going to a totally new everything take a bit of getting used to. I was kinda shocked they don't have 3 strap bindings anymore.

I meant to mention it earlier but boot fit has a huge effect on how well Flows work. More then any other binding. If there is nay slop in the boot then that will go right to the binding.

I really want to encourage you to try out a drastically different stance for a whole day. Something closer to 18/-15 and 22" wide. Also a great way to see what your natural stance is is to stand on your board in socks with no bindings on it with your shoulders in line with the board. Then close your eyes and do full squats (thighs parallel to the ground) As you do the squats adjust your feet (angle and width) until you feel it is as comfortable and "controlled" as possible.

I am riding an 3 year old pair of Burton Tributes, size 11 with 2013 NX2-AT bindings for about a month now and find them to be very solid with no issues whatsoever.

Make sure you have the power strap centred on your boot. You should have the same amount of ladder strap on each side of your foot, both front and back. Take the time OFF the hill to get your boot / binding setup very close to ideal. If you have done this, you should only have some very minor tweaking to do once you are riding.

Also check to see where the canting pad is positioned. It is adjustable, ( small screw under your heel which is a huge ice magnet, only minor downside that I have discovered) and see if moving it will help with your issue.
