You said you have some brand new bindings you've yet to use... did you buy them to sit around or just so you could post on an internet forum that you own them? Of course not. Is an aging binding failing? Just not feelin' good about last year's bindings after you gave them a decent chance? You have a selection at your fingertips. Use it. Sell what you don't like or want to recoup some costs and move on. I dunno', if last year's bindings were flawless, but they've failed you this year, I'm thinking it's something else. Did you change your boots, change your riding habits, do any maintenance or disassembly/reassembly? Lots of things it could be other than the manufacturer of the product. And if it is the product, use a different one. It's not rocket surgery.

FWIW...YMMV...my two cents
well said, sir.

craig-b Not to just be a hater.

But, i absolutely HATE my Flows.


Bought them because i was never good at getting up when first strapping in, found it easier to use the Flows, plus they were 75$ off..

But, i noticed a BUNCH of heel lift when i trying to go on my toe edge, making it so much harder to control and really taking a toll on my legs having to try harder to carve toe edge.

And yes, i set them up properly, even with the ankle part of the strapping system as tight as it could possibly go, my heel would still lift up at least an inch and a half, if not more. Either, i didnt set them up properly, which, i cant see how you couldnt, they are simple!

Or, they are not for me..


Ordered a pair of 2012 Rome Arsenal(bright Yellow!)

Stoked to get on some traditional bindings.

The convenience of flows was nice, i thought about getting K2 Cinch, but, couldnt find any decently priced online, and when i went to look at them at my local shop(which is HORRIBLY overpriced) i decided to go for the Arsenal.



/end rant.

I confirm this. They sent me a spare strap to Moscow for free.

TMXMOTORSPORTS 2002 Flow bindings do not have the "Snap Lock" highback..They just flip up and are held up by tension only.I have had mine flip down only 2 times in 5 years.I have 2005 Team bindings and 2010 NXT AT's the 2010 have the Snap Lock.
