I have last years model and I have them mounted on my capita sierrascope and love it. I had flite 1 previously and this model blows it away. Its light and the mini rachets are great to get that custom fit.

Sweet. Is it a tough binding to set up?

they look nice. it took me a little while to center my atse's on the board, but actually getting the straps tight was easy.

Good bindings, but they are soft. If you want them for a more mtn or freeride type board, look instead at Fives or better, M9's. They are fun though. I still haven't convinced my self to sell them, I really might not. Even though I'll get more for them than my beat-ass Contacts.

Hey there, I'm not here to hate on Flow, but due to their baseplate I've heard stories of bindings and board inserts not matching up well. Because they use holes, it's possible (small chance but still possible) for you to have fitment issue on handmade/handcrafted boards. I've seen situations where it barely fit but you end up torquing the screws a bit slanted... with "regular" bindings, you can have more tolerance on the screw slots rather than just 1 hole you must fit dead on... just a thought. There used to be an post on this forum about this before.

I've noticed that slight screw misalignment, but all you have to do it dig it through the plate hole more than force it into the screw hole on the board. After all, once everything is bolted on, it really isn't going anywhere.

I have a SB and NXT and I had an issue with the hole pattern !!! It was not the board, it was the base plates. I called Thunder in warranty at Flow and he sent me plates with slots and they worked great.
I measured the base plate holes and they were way off, but they fixed the problem and I love these bindings.

You can see that the hole in the upper left is off center
