The 390 bosses look real nice!

Are the meastros considered park/all mtn bindings!?
Thanks against guys
Lifetime warranty on the baseplate. 2.5 degree cants. Only retards have trouble with the toe straps.

I've seen you say that on a couple threads haha.... Baseplate is whatever it's everything else that breaks a lot on bindings... For the most part

I must be retarded then. I was pissed off for several days and then I finally figured out the technique.

A good plastic binding is honestly no weaker than metal. At the same pressure you'll crack it you'll bend aluminum. Either way your screwed.

Flow NX2's. Canting, full aluminum. It's really either that or Rome. Union isn't canting anything till next year and the only metal part is the heelcup. Majority of the frame is nylon.

ill take my chances with a bend rather than a crack (:.... i was looking at the nx2's since they have everything i want and more but I dont think ill respond well without a proper toe cap :/ i really wish they did something about that

You really don't need it. I don't know where this idea that toe caps provide that much response for a heelside turn is coming from. Sure they do someting but that's what your highback is for and a properly adjusted Flow puts the highback flush with your boot. You are instantly driving into the highback and the cable puts all that energy directly into the baseframe.

I really really like flows and love the rear entrance clip and go but there higher end bindings all seem so stiff for park 4-5 and up just seems stiffffff
