Default which to choose?

Which bindings do you guy sthink i should choose? Burton missions or flow m7... missions are about $20 cheaper, but i ride short slopes mostly and would like the ease of the flows.
I ride about 50% trails 50% park, but will progress to more park as i get better.
thanks for any input

I had a set of flow M9s that I used for a couple weeks. I really liked them once I got them set up. They are a huge pain to get just right, but if you get you're settings right they are very fast to get in and out of, and are pretty responsive.

Sierra Trading Post is selling XL M9 bindings for dirt cheap right now. Follow the link to give it a look... Flow M9 Binding

If you get these, use this coupon I have. It gives you 20% off and free shipping ---> "RZN37277"

I would order this set myself to replace the ones I had stolen, but I have been using flows for about 4 or 5 years now and I want to try something different.
I don't know anything about the missions, maybe somebody else can help you there. good luck!

I really doubt they will be too big for your board. The board i used them with was not a wide board. Also, the toe area of the binding's footprint is adjustable to three different sizes to fit your board and boots better. The 20 percent is in addition to the current price, so they are like 80 bux. These are the 07/08 season model. i think there are some Missions on the site too for cheap but I think you will like the flows better.

I'm a size 9.5 boot and have medium 2009 missions. With the gas pedal all the way out my boots are locked in tight with just a few clicks. I don't have any complaints with them on the comfort side. Very easy to set up, very easy to get in/out of. I haven't ridden the Flow's so I can't comment on them but I'm happy with my missions. If you can get them at a decent price (should be able to around now) they're a good pair of bindings.
