Great, thanks for that. I took the plunge last week and ordered the NX2-AT, so it does seem like I made the right choice. They arrive tomorrow Just need Austria to get a bit more snow.

I have previously had Flow FL-11s, Flow Pro-11FRs and recently Union Force bindings. The Unions were good, but the toe-strap often slipped when capped. I live in the UK, so only get 1 or 2 weeks a year boarding, so want to maximise the fun when I do go. It looks like a choice between the NX2-AT/SE/GT/RS here in the UK. The AT/SE are 200 (approx. 333 US dollars), the GT/RS are 300 (approx. 500 US dollars), so a significant increase. I am still not sure if the NX2-SE or NX2-AT are right for me. I believe either would suffice, but, still have a few concerns about the toe-strap of the SE, based purely on the comments on this thread. I have size 9 Burton Ambush boots if that helps, which are extremely light, but very wide at the front (the reason I bought them) and would imagine I would want the large binding.

Any comments would be welcome, as I go to Austria in a few weeks.

Also, I would like to say huge thanks to Wiredsport, Solucien, John Doe, Slyder & Nivek for all your contributions here, it makes a big difference to those of us on a limited budget or limited snow. John Doe and Slyder especially, not just for your sheer persistence, but hopefully you have helped to make the 2014/15 product better for all of us

Cheers
Hi,

The biggest difference is the Hybrid Strap (with toe cap) on the GT vs. the "traditional" flow strap on the RS. Next year the two bindings will be merged into the GT only and it will be offered with Hybrid or trad strap.

The top (1/3) of the modback is different and the configuration of the OC Cush on the base is different but in reality those have only a very minor nuance difference in feel and performance (which is why they were merged for next season).

You can send that info to wiredsport@wiredsport.com and we will get you squared away.
Thanks for all your help. Flow is shipping a replacement part. Thanks
