rheo Just ordered a set of NX2 hybrids and Talon boots. Really hope the boot fit is right. There's just noone here that stocks them.

That's a great idea with painting the position where it is dialed. I'll definitely do that.

Now I just need to figure out which board I'm getting.

Short list so far...

Jones Mountain Twin Solid
Nitro Diablo
Lib Tech Travis Rice Pro

I've started a thread about it in the Equipments / Snowboards forum although it won't let me post a link to that here...

neednsnow Love Flows, been riding em for 12 years. I always Paint the spot on the ladder where it is dialed-in. That way when they get switched or I remove the strap to load in a travel bag, they're easy to set-up. Flows are just too smooth!

The ratchet has a lock position to keep this from happening, but I'm just not having good luck keeping them consistent.
The new hybrid Flows have "traditional" ratchets as well as the dropping highback. One problem is that they will tighten on their own if, for instance, you slap your board on the ground to clear snow. I have yet to use the hybrid feature (although if we had deep pow here I'd probably have to do so), and TBH the next time I buy Flow bindings I'll avoid the hybrid feature if possible.

Having said that, I will buy Flows in the future. I have them on my Heritage, and I have Targas on my Proto. Each binding type has its advantage.

Hmmmm......I'll probably mull it over for 3 years or so?

f00bar I may actually dump my Flows tonight, if not I almost certainly will over the off season. I simply don't care for them, maybe its the power strap thing and I'd prefer the hybrids. I also think my size 8s simply don't fit well in an M and I should be in a large. There just seems to be very little clearance width wise to allow me to slide in easily.

Even after I have them dialed in and the ratchet locked after a few runs I seem to end up loosening and redoing them. I've given them a full season, just not my cup of tea.

Oldman Hey rheo, welcome to the madhouse

Same binders for 16 years..... buddy you owe yourself a belated Christmas present. Time for you to experience something that will no doubt get you stoked.

As you are already a Flow Fan, you will love the NX2 model. Don't hesitate for a second, pull the trigger, dump your old and get on with the new.

I dare suggest that if your boots and deck are as old as your binders, you need to triple treat yourself and score a complete new setup. You won't believe what you have been missing.

rheo I've been rocking the same Flow bindings from 2000 for the past 16 years now. I think they're really great and I love the easy step in and one click off you go without stopping while getting off the chairlift. Great for solo riding that way otherwise you are probably waiting for someone anyway.

I'm thinking about upgrading though and was pleased to find that flow is still going with new evolutions of this concept available now. I came here to find out if anyone was saying anything very negative about them but I guess if they've been able to stay in business for all this time they must be doing something right.

So no I'm looking at the NX2 and hope I can get into a pair around here...

I personally prefer the hybrid
I have very similar specs as you. the hybrid takes a little more tweaking to get right, but i feel (maybe in my mind) it is more responsive. I havea pair with the fusion strap as well, but always use the hybrids.

hope this helps
