t21 just purchase 2011 flow 5 on sale for $130,(fortunately got a safety award for the month where i work).i was hoping to get a nxt-at but... is the flow 5 a good binding? this would be my second season boarding and i normally ride all mountain except park. i figure it may not be a bad start to ride with flow bindings since i'm an intermediate rider.

LuckyRVA just browse the for sale section here and your local craigslist for some used flows.

This ^^^.

EDIT: Didn't see the medical issues the OP is facing. Given back and knee problems, as the OP said, it'd make sense to exchange some money (for good bindings) for pain on the slopes.

t21 its medical issue but i'm working on flexibility for this season and until i can't do it anymore.i use to ski but my knees kills me after riding all day and snowboard is much easier on my knees.also my lower back is another PITA so sitting down strapping in and trying to stand up was my biggest problem.but with all this ailment,it won't deter me from snowboarding,just trying to make it slightly easier on my body.

check out the salomon chief bindings, they have the "fast fit" toe straps that never come fully out so all you have to do is put your foot in and start ratcheting. ive ridden salomon bindings for a couple years and their in my top 3 bindings.

Salomon. Look at them. They force this on you.

Zak edit: my apologies. didn't think of medical reasons as your motivation.

besides that, you can just strap in on the lift if the place allows it/doesn't care (place where i go doesnt)
