'09 Flow Team Bindings First Impression!!!!!
Alright, time to vent!!!
With these being my first Team pair of flow bindings (had the NXT AT one season a few seasons ago) I am totally P'd off and the engineering with these things. Don't get me wrong, their light, and seem strong, but the hardware used to put these thing together, and the process you need to take to adjust them for the first time, royally suck!!!! i have been working on 1 binding for over 5 hours and had to give up for now because im so frustrated and upset. Flow uses this 2 part screw (on side is a male screw, the other side is a female screw (imagine a screw with no threads on the outside, but a hole drilled in the middle with threads on the inside) with a one direction lock washer that has a square hole in the middle that attaches to the female side.........super hard to explain. The point is:
I followed the "user setup guide" instructions and these stupid screws will not come apart, without first being destroyed in the process.
(I have a complete shop full of tools) so its not that im using A tool that isnt really capable of doing the job.
Its really frustrating, I emailed Flow twice to express how upset I am, and requested a full set of replacement hardware for the pair. Im waiting for a reply from them, before I put together a better hardware system that I know will still be just as effective and safe.
Just my First Impressions on these New for 2009 "professional" team bindings from Flow.
Im open to questions and comments.
I know im brand new here and this is my first post, so bare with me, and my frustrations.
