Default strap-in bindings, sway my opinion

Alright here's the deal: for my first few years riding i did burton bindings, then(being a wisconsinite with shitty hills) i converted to flows for the convenience factor and have been a fan ever since. i've decided to invest in a new pair of bindings this season for my next trip to colorado in a few weeks. my first thought was upgrade to NXT's, but now i'm getting a bit curious to see how strap-in bindings have evolved over the years.

Anyways, if anyone feels like giving input and trying to sway my opinion or give me models to consider i'd appreciate it. i'm out of the loop with anything that isn't flow now so fill me in on what i've missed.( o and for the record i'm still a flow fan, and only wanna use strap-ins for mountain riding.)

i have a feeling ill get NXT's and a pair of strap-ins. i was thinking i'll keep the strap-ins on my back up board and give em a shot in colorado. i figure if i can pick up the nxts and some strap-ins both 30-50% off then why not right? its a big bday present to myself.

i expect to find those closer to the 30% off range, i've been hunting like crazy and just missed em on sierra but i can get triads or cartels or bindings like that half off now. im hoping to see em pop up on steep n cheap or whiskey militia or somewhere like that though and ill snatch em up in a heartbeat.

i've heard that from a lot of people lately, i can't recall them being like that in the past but couldn't swear on it either way. part of my growing into a flow fan though is liking forward lean to make damn sure the fuckers stay shut so i might not mind it so much, i would definitely demo first though.
