I think I'm going to pull the trigger and if they are not my cup of tea...so be it, but they're worth a try. I'm just figuring out wether I want to go with the top tier Se's or the Fuse-GT, which are just about the same except for the baseplate and heelcup on the GT's are nylon and not aluminum alloy like the Se's.

It's really not as bad as it sounds. The technology is well thought out and it works. The only issue I've had is with the rachet.
I spent the greater part of 2 hours today setting up my Rome 390 Bosses on another board. Now that's a binding with a lot of parts.

|crash77||Sounds like even with the new n.a.s.t.y. tech, some refinements/tweaks are needed. My apprehension with these bindings are there seem to be so many moving parts that rely on each other to operate smoothly for the whole package to come together.|

|ksup3erb||Okay. I actually called backcountry and they sent out a brand new set of bindings. I just replaced the rachets, but I left the vinyl on. I haven't been out again since I made this fix. I tried spraying some water on the ladders and they hold tight. I hope it will hold up with snow/throwing the board around.|

|john doe||It has been greatly reduced by backing the ladder strap with vinyl to make it thicker but it still happens because that isn't a real solution. When it happened it was right after a long hiking session where I was throwing the board around. Something I did with my previous Flows and was never a problem.|

|ksup3erb||You're still having that problem?|

I think I'm the only person to post a video in that thread of strapping in and I posted it to show how easy it was. My other video of my buckles being fucked up is still a real issue. I had my toes go cold and numb last night because my front foot's main ratchet tightened and I didn't notice.
To answer the title question yes the NASTY system does get rid of shoehorning. In fact it makes it easy to make them way too tight.

|Backcountry||I don't know about these but the beginning of the video is pretty funny.|

The backs stay down. I am still working on lifting up and locking in one motion, but still really quick.
Only issue I have is when I put my foot in, I have to pull the straps back a little, then push my foot just a little more to be able to close up the back.
I can't seem to put my foot in with one nice motion. I put it in, pull the straps back a little, push my foot in a bit more, then lock up the back. The bindings are still new, so it might just be then needing to get broke in.
But they are great! I hear if I went with the NX2-GT or SE, it would remedy that problem. (I have the NX2-AT). But I might have to wait until next season to afford those.

I have the Five SEs too without NASTY. Echo what everyone else says. Little to no issues with shoehorning once you get the straps dialed in. I do each side with one hand. I imagine it's even easier with NASTY.
Out of the box never an issue with the high backs not staying down. Never tried strapping in on the lift. It takes only a few seconds on the ground.
The only issue I've encountered is the straps overtightening. I fixed this with electrical tape on the underside of the ladder. Flow's locking buckle needs improvement. Otherwise very nice product.
