I personally prefer the hybrid
I have very similar specs as you. the hybrid takes a little more tweaking to get right, but i feel (maybe in my mind) it is more responsive. I havea pair with the fusion strap as well, but always use the hybrids.

hope this helps

The ski patrol guys at the top were amazed I just walked away from that one.
The older Flow, especially my first Flow that I got back in 2010 (The Five) was actually an absolute pain to get into. I had them dialed in for riding, which meant that when getting into them, it was going to be a tight and snug attempt.

Basically, on those old 2010 The Five, if I had any kind of snow/ice build up in my bindings and/or boots, getting into them would have taken as long as traditional bindings IF NOT more.

I am looking forward to the more modern Flows with their Active Strap system (kind of wish they thought about that way back too).

And to the person who got launched from their Flows, no. Just no. Even on my old 2010 Flow The Five, once my feet were in, they weren't going anywhere.

larrytbull The flows have a few flaws, especially for goofy riders that are right handed/ They can be a little awkward reaching around to lock in, but for me they are hands down the best rear entry binding in the market

dave785 the modern flow bindings have to be locked after you ratchet them. too many people forget the "lock" step. AFAIK it's unique to flow.

Be careful 'bout blaming it on your bindings! Some people get real touchy about that on this board. You clearly just don't know how to strap into your bindings.

Nivek I have been using Flow consistently for about 6 years now. I also ride a lot of other 2 strap bindings. Flow make solid bindings that have earned their spot in my rotation. But there is a certain feel that 2 strap bindings can offer that Flows can't, so I ride a mix.

I've ridden Flows for years, so has a friend. Neither of us have ever even once been blown out of a binding. Except for him the time he hit a sled track he couldn't see going about 45mph after hitting a backcountry jump. But then the board and neither binding survived, he did though.

Also, the way you say "last April" makes me think that's the one and only time you have used them, and the most common issue with people having issues with Flow is improper setup. And if you're blowing out of them, that's my first thought. If they're set up correctly you actually have to position yourself to get them pop on purpose.

Learn to strap in standing up... Kick heel edge of board into snow 2-3 times to make a shelf, rest board on shelf, put other foot into binding, strap in, ride off.
