If you're gonna go with Flows, you're gonna have to get over that. I also liked my bindings tight for control, but it'll take you a little time to realize that response and control with Flows will be...

I'm a big fan of the Flow NXT (in 2013, NX2) bindings for comfort reasons, but since i buckled in standing up on the fly with regular bindings, i only gained a few seconds on entry time. Response on...

I think you'll be happy with any of the T.Rice options you're looking at. Like many others, i don't think you should make a choice based on graphics but with all other factors equal or similar, you...

Thanks. Love my 2011 NXT-FSEs, though the only issue i've had with them was that I snapped one of the top panels. Flow replaced, it of course, but I wondered if that was an issue.

What's the difference between those top panels, functionally? Is one

I'll throw in another vote in for the BOA. Most importantly, you need a boot that fits and is comfortable regardless of the closure type. I find the ease of the BOA is great, though i would recommend...

Just a couple comments: You say you don't ride in the park yet you want a smaller board. That is a little contradictory - usually a shorter board is better for park-pipe/freestyle riding while you...

They may be a little spendy, but if comfort is your concern, i'd recommend you consider Flow bindings. For comfort and responsiveness, they can't be beat. The strap design makes pressure on your feet...

Wired, just to clarify, funtionally do the 2013s match up with the 2012s as follows?

GT = FSE (all mt. freestyle)
RS = FRX (all mt. freeride)
SE = ATSE (all mt. freestyle)
AT = AT (all mt.)

I also ride the T.Rice and love it. Looks like it suits your riding profile pretty well.
