snowbrdr So I decided I'm returning the GNU freedoms and bought a pair of Flow Fuse GT hybrids. I agree now with some of the other posts that I think the quality is better. They also weight almost a half pound more EACH than the Gnus. I spent about 10 min adjusting them in my boots in the livingroom and they are super easy to get in and out of and feel really good. My heel does not get caught on the back of the binding when locking up like the gnus and the toe cap stays exactly where it's supposed to be. So I'm optimistic these are going to work out. Going out to Winter Park in 7 days so i'm stoked!

I agree. CTXs were so hard to snap up, which is why i got rid of them, and also the weight. Haven't missed the CTXs just canted footbed. For me with a short inseam, they were nice.

I would have gone with the nx2 but seemed too stiff by the spec for my riding style and ability. Also got the GT model. One other thing that i like about these is the canted footbed. I've missed that since i had ctx's.

You have the freedoms? Do you use the toe strap as a cap or strap over top?

Uggghh.. Ok, going to try Flow Fuse Hybrid GTs with the NASTY tech. I like the toe cap and if it works better than the Freedoms then I should be a happy camper and the Freedoms go back. One thing that may make a difference for me is the fact that my Freedoms were on the upper end of size i.e. i have an 8.5 boot and a medium binding. I'm going to a large binding in the flow so maybe a tad roomier side to side and easier to slide on and off. What a money pit! :-)

Edit: I went for the fuse because of the medium stiffness i think will work better with my NS Proto HD

larrytbull above is why i ditched GNU and went to flow, never looked back. the GNU toe cap either fit or it did not. for me it did not
of all the Rear entry bindings flows are the best. can they improve, sure they can, but IMO FLOW>GNU
