He's doing boxes too so the Targas are going to be suxxorz for that. Well, not entirely thanks to the adjustability. Still, BOSSES all the way.

What makes you interested in Flows? I am a long time Flow binding supporter, but I have always only recommended it to riders for specific reasons.

1) If you ride on a small mountain with a lot of lift riding time, then Flows are going to rock since they are super easy to enter/exit. Another reason that quick entry/exit is good is for bigger riders. Even if you are in shape, bending down to strap in can be taxing. Same with sit-down strapping in.

2) If you have foot fatigue from extended riding, Flows will almost completely resolve that problem. This scenario only applies if you have the right boots though. Boots are first and foremost in foot comfort. Say you have great fitting boots and you experience foot fatigue after riding, then the bindings are the culprit. Flow's strap design evenly distributes pressure on the top of your feet. Whereas traditional strap bindings are isolated to two regions on your feet. I can literally ride 16 hours in my Flows without any foot fatigue.

If you fall in that criteria, the NXT-AT's are great bindings. The NXT-ATSE is that much better. The SE version of Flows are much easier to set up since they only use 2 mini ratchets rather than 4. I personally ride the Flow NXT-FSE. It's slightly stiffer and lighter.
you know whats funny

I just bought my pair of bosses today

Thank you for your detailed feedback, it was very helpful. I think I'm going to take your advice on the rome 390 bosses. I was originally interested in the flows for the style and ease. I live in Southern California, so most of the time I do ride small mountains. It's sad, but its the price you pay to be able to surf and snowboard in the same day.

I need help... What bindings should I get?!?

Aight so I'm new to this forum, though I've read your posts often to get some advice. But this is my first post. Here's my situation:

I just bought a 2010 Lib Tech TRS (157), pair of DC Park boots (size 11) and I'm not sure what bindings to get... I plan do some all-mountain riding.. bout 65% trails/groomers and 35% jumps/boxes...

I was looking at the Flow NXT-AT bindings... and Burton Cartels.... I would really appreciate some you more experienced riders giving me some advice please...
