Default Flow youth bindings

I was looking at a pair of Flow A1 bindings for my 6yr old. Anyone think they'd be good for a kid his age? He's currently in a drake one strap that he has a little trouble with getting in and out of and this year he's beginning to make turns so I wanted to get him into a two strap binding, but something he could strap and unstrap quickly. Any info on flows access and strap response would be great.

I think a Flow setup for someone his age would be a great idea because of the full power strap going across his foot. Once set up he should have no prblems getting in and out of them. Easier than the drake 1-strap sysytem.

I was just worried he'd be able to operate the highback because it uses a lot of leverage to stay strapped. Hopefully it will make things easier on him and I wont have to help him strap in and out all the time.

ive heard people saying other, but mine are extremely easy to release, especially the less highback lean you use it gets significantly easier...

That makes sense because of the whole geometry thing. I think they need a few degrees less than 90 to work properly.
