Help! Flow Bindings Incompadible with Burton Board?
 
I have a 2007 Burton Blunt snowboard and 2007 Flow AMP 5 bindings.

The bindings won't attach to the board properly because the screw holes do not line up. I know Flow sells discs that you can purchase if you have a Burton board such as at this link:

Flow 3-Hole Snowboard Binding Discs (Fits Burton Boards)

Will this solve my problem guaranteed? Does anyone know where I can purchase some in Toronto, Canada?

Thanks

Yes it will solve your problem. That board uses the Burton lame ass three hole system. Just don't get a Burton board with EST and expect your Flows to work with it.

:laugh: :laugh: when i was selling snowboards we had a new guy that knew next to nothing about boards and he sold a guy some cartels and one of the EST boards, i had to grab him at the register and explain his son was going to be pretty upset when he tried mounting those bindings:laugh:

surely this thread's title would be better off being

'HELP! FLOW BINDINGS INCOMPATIBLE WITH HUMAN FEET!' :D

Interesting.. The discs on my NXTs have the holes for both regular and three holes paterns.

I had a set of Flow Eleven bindings and they came with the universal binding plates that would fit a Burton board. Maybe its just hit and miss which Flows have the universal plates?

This years and last years flows I believe have the universal discs with them. Those amp 5s look like they are from 05/06.

Yet another great innovation by Flow. What will they come up with next to improve our riding enjoyment.:D :D :D :D :D

Grimdog 12-11-2007 11:25 PM

Sorry, those are 06/07 amp 5s. Maybe just the higher end Flows came with the universal plates. Still, what a great binding.:D :D :D :D :D

Alright I just realized there are 3 different types of discs. Here is the pattern on my Burton Blunt:

Here is the disc that came with my Flow AMP 5's:

And here are the two other patterns I found:

Does anyone know which disc is the right one? And is it fine mounting bindings with only 3 screws? I thought it was minimum 4 :confused:

Thanks

I'm going with the third set of discs.
