Default N00b needs help with Flow binding disc...

Hello everybody, so I was recently given a board and bindings from a friend (similar size to me so I'm not too worried about those particular things). The board is an older Burton, probably mid 2000s with 2006 Flow bindings. The hole pattern on the deck is the 3D, or 3-hole diamond-ish pattern. This is all well and good, but the problem I have is that the bindings only came with 1 of the mounting discs; he lost the other one at some point over the last few years. I've called Flow and talked to Christian and he told me that the year after these particular bindings they changed their mounting discs so they no longer carry what I need in spare parts. I've scoured ebay and done every possible google search I could think of to try and find anybody carrying these to no avail. Basically what I'm hoping by posting this is that somebody out there might have an ancient set of Flow discs laying around that they aren't using and would like to part with them. I've attached images of both the one disc that I do have and the hole pattern on the board. This particular disc measures 4.5" in diameter for reference sake and says "3HP" in the center. If anybody has these please PM and we can work something out. Thanks to all who read this.

The other obvious option is for me to get new bindings, but as I'm a pretty novice boarder I'd like to try and at least get the rest of this season out of these before I make an investment in some I plan on using for a while. Thanks again.

DC

Damn, I'm looking for the same thing. I bought a used Burton board because it seemed like a good deal. Had I realized I would need new bindings I would have reconsidered.

I'll probably end up getting a new set of flows. But I already have 2 sets that will work on 1 of my boards, but not the other.

Try asking at your local shop if they have any of those disks for sale, many do.

Timberline, that's my next step. The shop I took my board to for wax/tune didn't have any and obviously said "You are going to have to buy new bindings" to try and initiate a sale. There are one or two others in the area I'm going to call and see if they can hook it up.

VKNY, yeah, I'm pretty sure that's what changed. These are 4.5 inches diameter, not sure what the new ones are; but I'm pretty positive that they are a little smaller.

you disks should fit on the board.
See attached picture. The holes marked in red can be used to screw the binding down on the 3-hole pattern (diamond shaped) Burton system.

Learn to read.

He only has 1 disc.

I actually have 2 of those discs, I haven''t had flow bindings in about 4 or 5 years.

I know I need discs for a couple pairs, just don't know if those are them.

I'm up in Canada though, it might be cheaper to buy new Flows?
