So a lot of people at my mountain think flows are stupid and cheap. Some like them alot because i get to the top and it takes me seconds to get my foot in and go.
Well I bought some flow m11's for like $200-250.
They have lasted me an entire season and still in good shape.
If you decide to go out and buy some flows there is one thing you should know, dont make them too tight, you get frustrated when you put your foot in and you cant pull the back up. Dont make them too lose, just enough where you can put your foot in and take it out.
You hear alot about the back breaking or the wires snapping, that isnt likely to happen ok, i have got them too tight so many times and pulled the back so hard just to make it click. You shouldnt be afraid unless you buy really cheap bindings or you can see the wires wearing. So try em dude, im an instructor and you need to flip em on and off fast.
