Ya i know that it is a personal thing but some brands have good respect in this sport and reputation. I will like to get my equipment that i know has a good following and are known for the quality and involment in the sport. I hope i made sense
Sorry to say, I'm not too familiar with Flow's decks, but I'm sure someone from the forum will gladly add their input.
Flow bindings seem to have divided the public’s opinion. My buddy loves them and constantly brags that he can just step-in at the top of the hill without wasting time. I on the other hand enjoy the scenery and remind him that he's waiting for me to strap in anyways. As I understand it, people's beef with Flow bindings are that they aren't as responsive as strap-ins but other’s disagree and say the ease in strapping in on small resort hills are well worth it.
With respect to the board length, I believe 163 for 200lb is just right
Ok im new to the sport im looking to buy my equipment. just want to know what are the top brands in these sport? After reeading a few topics i think im an All-Mtn kind of guy
im 6 ft 200lbs and shoes size is 11.
what size board should i look at? I was told 163 wide
Im looking at a Flow Merc 2010 with flite bindings for 350 new is this good?
1st is 1st what are top 5 brands?
Thx sorry im new to the forum and loveing it just looking for the rt equipment and want something i can grow with
as far as brands i don't really have a top 5, i don't have experience with enough of them to have a top 5 lol. for your board choice though, don't bother with a wide board, you'll be fine with a normal width board. Your shoe size is a size 11 which means your boots will probably be smaller or at most the same size which is still small enough to fit on a normal width board.
