I really really like flows and love the rear entrance clip and go but there higher end bindings all seem so stiff for park 4-5 and up just seems stiffffff

Flow NX2's. Canting, full aluminum. It's really either that or Rome. Union isn't canting anything till next year and the only metal part is the heelcup. Majority of the frame is nylon.

I've seen you say that on a couple threads haha.... Baseplate is whatever it's everything else that breaks a lot on bindings... For the most part

The 390 bosses look real nice!

Are the meastros considered park/all mtn bindings!?
Thanks against guys
