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.

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

surely this thread's title would be better off being

'HELP! FLOW BINDINGS INCOMPATIBLE WITH HUMAN FEET!'

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

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.

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

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

Thanks
