snowboardr77 I have a 2009 and 2010 skunk ape and use the union forces on mine and love them. I wish they made the green again this year but they are not...

Nivek Flows brake in just like any other binding. The difference is that with Flows you notice the break in cause you are not undoing the strap every run. Every initial adjustment stays the same. They take more initial set-up time but when that time is taken, and they are tweaked after 5-6 days of riding, they are a great and responsive ride. They still have nearly unmatched edge to edge quickness. Also remember that the strap does not need to be tight, only snug.

Another note: in the past it has not been worth it to buy anything from Flow below M11's. They consistently improve in quality every year so this may have changed

I recommend NXT-AT's, SL's (if they really did stiffen those up), SPi's, or Targa's.

cool, maybe i will give the new ones a try. Also, try the bindings i listed because they really are perfect for what you do/how you ride.

skatebanana101 from experience, i prefer the burtons or the unions. the flow design is smart, but they werent comfy for me at speed. i really like the reliability of the unoins, and you really cant go wrong with burton. I use the union force's on my skate banana and love em, and had a pair of missions for a few years on my old board. but maybe the flows will be comfortable and useful for you, it really all depends on your riding
