EL has a lot of insider stuff. Pretty cool to read. Threads are funny sometimes when they go off tangents.

Aren't you with Capita or similar?

As for goodride, they're useful for one thing. Finding out what tech changes there are from year to year but even then they get it wrong sometimes.

Their Happy Hour review. Says they rode a 154 but in the video I swear it's a 159 they're messing with.

Back when I was riding a lot, I rode several different pairs of flows and never had any major complaints. I will say that the bindings I am rocking now are very kosher and I have zero complaints. But I would certainly like to give the new generation of Flows a run.

I second that, but I did sell them for almost what I paid for them.

TyBardy i was wrong, I was going to pickup the NX2-SE's... they seem pretty legit. I wish I could ride a set before purchasing though. hard to work that out and I dont know anyone who rides flows to give me their opinion.

linvillegorge Flow has come a long way in recent years. 5 years ago those things were shit.

I was very close to scooping up a set of the NX2-AT's but because I knew nothing about their new design and didn't have time to do any research, I got a set of the Burtons instead. Figured I couldn't go wrong. I am still VERY interested in those NX2-AT's though. They look very nice and the ability to strap and untrap from the top eliminates that issue of what the hell to do when you get stuck in deep powder with flows on.

Im a Ride fanboy... have been for years. Always felt like they were top shelf. However, I have been very interested in a Never Summer Board ever since my last board purchase.

Alkasquawlik Agreed, different strokes for different folks. At the end of the day, they're both pieces of wood that we all use to slide down frozen water.
