if you havent felt the fisher price plastic on burton and flow bindings then you probably dont know that they feel like they arent supposed to flex one bit. theyre too tough. and with that wiring and clamp holding all my bodyweight up? sorry i dont trust that and i dont think that flows were meant for the park more then fast easy and lazy as fuck people who just freeride. this guys looking for responsive dependable flexible bindings that will reassure him that they wont break or have any issues. thats where the romes, rides, and flux bindings come in play. def read up on the flux's though ive seen one guy ride em now hes a buddy of mine he says that they are the best ones he has ridden and hes got burtons, tried flows, and has a pair of 390's. he said a tad more stiff but def worth it.
HHAHAHAH hold on, so you trust your body's weight to a plastic tooth that the ratchet's hold on to, but not to the gage 2 braided wiring and a clasp that will break fingers?
Oh, and with regards to the 'fisher price plastic' on my flows, I didn't feel any difference from ride or rome plastics *shrug*
Back to topic though:
I ride Flow AMP9, not sure what replaced those, could have been the M9 currently, and they're comfortable I find. I do find them a bit heavier than some others, but if you're just freeriding, I'd say give'em a go.
Also, I find that they're not too stiff. I just started this year, and have no problem getting my board to do what I want with them.
