IMO Flows are just about the biggest pieces of crap on the market. I've owned 2 pairs and both have broken within 3 or 4 weeks of use. And if you have to unstrap for any reason on steep terrain, or powder, you're screwed and have to come up with creative body positioning to strap back in.

i took a friend out his first time this year & rented a board from a local shop. they hooked him up with flow bindings & he did have a bit of trouble getting his boot all the way in, to be able to snap up. i think it probably would have been easier for him with straps.

plus, for beginners, it's usually easier for them to stay on their heel edge at first, which flow bindings make you be on your toe edge to snap in. so they've gotta do that silly spin around thing, making them look like a fish in the snow.

^^^My thoughts on Flows for beginners exactly. Most beginners are going to want to sit to get into their bindings. Not as easy with Flows.
