Which of these Flow Binding should I get??

I ride all mountain switching between groomers and park. I ride a Burton Deuce. I am going to be getting last years models bindings to save money. Here are my four choices but am open to other FLOW suggestions. No haters please:

2007 Flow the Pros
2008 Flow M9
2008 Flow the Eleven
2008 Flow the Five

Or I could get the 09 Flow Flight 3s

I appreciate the help

I had the Amp 5s and the Pro 11s for years and loved them. It's just this year that I'm switching over to a strap in because my Pros finally went on me. I'd go for whichever the lightest one is because that's my only complaint with Flow is that they're heavy and cumbersome compared to a lot of other strap ins.

I would say the M9 is going to suit your needs the best because you are going to do both all mountain and park. The Eleven is an all mountain binding and the Five is not as good of quality as the M9.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

I use Amp9s from two years ago.
I REALLY like the Flow system. I'm curious if newer Flows are lighter than the AMP9s...but the bottom line for me (all mountain riding in QC, VA and Switzerland) is my wife skiis .. so the fster I'm in the better.



If she snowboarded, I'd prolly try these burton cartels or customs.

I'd say don't get any of em. I've owned 2 pairs of Flow Bindings and they all were junk. Expensive junk that broke after 2 or 3 days of riding.

Sample size of 1.

I've had more issues with my Burton's than my Flows. I have the NXT's and they have been a) difficult to dial in and b) once dialed in, fantastic.
