I'll give the Flows a try when they do demos at our local resort. Btw, I used to ride Flows a long time ago and could strap in while skating.

I'll give the Missions a try but skeptical about the Cartel or Vitas. My reason, the hinge will reduce the amount of longitudinal flex I can apply to a camber board. That's the reason I moved up from Flow bindings to straps long ago.

Thanks for the recommendation.

LOL, it doesn't take me even a second to strap in Flows. I used to ride Flows and could strap in while skating.

Thanks! I never thought of that, the Reflex version doesn't have the Hinge.

Ok so every possible recommendation under the sun so far.

They're spendy but might as well demo the diodes too.

I don't recall anyone here saying they're soft. We've said they are softer than they have been in the past few years. I rode them back to back to back with the Malavita and Genesis on the same day on the same board.

But you're right. I mean the evidence you've presented is in fact irrefutable.

The amount and way the Hinge flexes does not rob you of performance. In fact I found it allowed for a bit of a load up and gave me a bit more energy.

Snowboarding Is...

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

I could see how the Hinge allows for a wider stance and thereby generate leverage for longitudinal flex. Guess I'll demo them but it will be more dependent on my riding style and comfort; i.e. I don't ride Cowboy.

Thanks for posting but big jump from less than $300; Diode Est are $400 and Diode Reflex are $370.

Edit: Wow, just priced the Flows. I'm probably looking at the Flow NX2 AT for demo; other NX2 models get into Diode price range.
