Get rid of those crappy flows and pick up some real bindings.

Sorry, I don't know a ton about Flows... The thing that always scared me about Flows is taking a spill in some POW and having to dig yourself out just to be able to unstrap and walk if needed.... They only seem to come in handy if your riding with a group of other with Flows, or riding alone. If your with a group and your the only one without Flows, then you're waiting on everyone else to strap in anyways.

But ya, sorry I don't have any advice on which Flow is a good one... I've had Burton Custom bindings which I loved, and I know have Ride NRc which are brand new and havn't even been put on my stick yet.

I have had to undo my bindings in deep POW it isn't as hard as people think.Riding with a group with or with out flows isn't a problem I don't mind waiting..I had burton custom binding before my flows but they were way old.Do you know anything about the board?Burton Avenger gave a review about it but in one he said onething in the other review he said another so

I believe the new solitude has reverse camber so that is something to take into account and may be more geared towards pow this year. Previous years models wuere supposed to be killer freeride boards. As far as the bindings go people act like as long as you get any type of nxt binding that you are going to be alright. I have a Flow Infinite w/ the M11's and I love it. I ride it mostly when I'm w/ people that ski cuz it just makes it a little easier to get off the lift and go. Flow makes quality boards and bindings. I don't really think there is a legit knock on their higher end bindings other than they are an acquirede taste. Also, Im sure you know this but the FRX is a super stiff binding.

'09 Flow Infinite 164w + '09 Flow M11's
'09 Capita Mid Life Lost 158 + '09 Rome 390's
'08 DC Graphix BOA's

I rode a pair of NXTs all last year and loved them. Once you get them dialed in they're great!
