Yea, thats awesome. Hope my ATSE will be as good as yours. I am about to pay now. I will receive it after a week probably because of the shipment.

The macro adjustments on the medial side for 2012 are like the Burton tool less adjustments for their straps.

If you've ever seen the underside of a higher end Flow strap there are segmented cushion pockets. For 2012 some of the pockets have gel like is in keyboard wrist supports.
Do you think the gel filed cushion pocket will make the binding less responsive? And the macro adjustment only helps in the binding set up right? After I set up the binding for the board and boot, I will not use the macro adjustment any more or I need to use it anytime I tie up the bindings?

So theoretically, the price will drop, but you cant get it with an on-sale price cuz most stores dont have them anymore.

Am I right?

For the ATSE the price at their website is $299, so even though I am buying the ATSE's last years model(2011 since the 2012's are coming out) for 300, it is still not ripping off? Aren't the bindings going on huge sale like the boards when the current year has passed? And for the macro adjustment and gelled straps, can you tell me a little more in detail?

And in general, do ppl prefer the ATSE better than the FSE or reverse?

DuoD I made up my mind, I will pick the NXT ATSE. It has a better looking and its flex is more to my riding style compared to the FSE.
I may probably have to spend about $300 to get it. OMG thats a lot!

Getting my girlfriend board/boots/bindings and she's pretty keen on Flow bindings, but I prefer traditional strap bindings myself.
yea, I really decide to get a pair. the only differences are at their highbacks, the FSE's seems more highend, but the ATSE's looks a little cheap cuz its only fiber and plastic. And I dont know at which price I should buy the 2011's model and not being ripped off.
