targa and flow mix! any thoughts on this?

I tried the flow bindings. I put the Targas on because I felt they offered more comfort and control. I do miss hopping off the lift and heading straight down the hill though. I usually ride alone as I hear less whining. Has anybody tried swapping one targa for a flow. I could care less how the board looked but of course would swap the rome targa back if the gods dumped on us.

You'd be significantly changing the flex pattern.

Or you could learn how to strap in while moving.

I know I would pick up the face plant rather quick. I did not think about the flex pattern though. I have an arbor roundhouse and it is pretty stiff! Like morning wood.

1. Sit on the left side of the chair lift
2. Put down the bar and rest your board on the ski rests
3. Strap in
4. Voila?

i have heard of people using one flow and and another 2 strap bindings before...the targas are adjustable enough to make them close to the flows flex..either way i couldnt see myself doing this...

Im sorry but that last post confused me. But I dont personally like flows, I think the K2 Cinch line is a better alternative

I honestly can't see not being able to ride straight off the lift as being a big enough problem to mix bindings. Just learn to strap in without stopping. That's what I do.

i can ride good.. however, i have trouble coming off a lift... only because when i learned the only lift up was a gondola and you had to unstrap for that
