yea, sounds right. i would get the FS's though. they are a better binding, a little softer but still more then enough for riding. i honestly couldnt tell you why they are not all mt but i love mine. the 3 piece highback is way nicer then the plastic 1 piece on the ATs.

do you think the skate banana and the flow FS would be the best fit for our hills/mountains here in southern wisconsin, 20-30 seconds max from top to bottom of the biggest hills, with a little carving and some small rails, jumps, jibbing around , etc ... ?

thanks

also will i lose feeling over the board compared to traditional strap in bindings, i've read a little about this, but not enough to make a decision not to go with the FLOWS.

thanks

i didnt lose any board feel whatsoever. i feel like aluminum bases have the best feel, and the flows are just nice bindings. i love em.
