Iain,

Well, courtesy of the insightful post explaining your thoughts on the
Cinch vs. Flow, perhaps the salesperson should send some pounds your
way.Smile

I went with the AT's. The were in my budget....unlike the Flow Team,
which were noticeably lighter than any binding on the rack, but also
twice the price.

Thanks again for the help and and suggestions.

Sean

I read this today, hopefully your new bindings have come
with the fix already in place.

I put my boots into the bindings for packing. So I don't really care how
well they pack down or anything.

Where are you packing your boots?

My wife's DVA bindings do. Nice bindings. I'm going to take a serious
look at Ride when my current bindings expire.

Hi Dave,

I was unsure if the the Flow highback would collapse forward, but they do.
I usually put my boots in my travel bag, between the bindings, not actually
*in* the bindings. I would think this would make my bag rather bulkly and
tall for airline handling.

Hi Iain,

I looked at my bindings and they look like a re-design from that setup shown
in the link above. Rather than a single screw that is set in a flange, it
is two screws, one on each side mating each other.

Maybe this is for older model NXT's? I didn't see a date reference on the
news bulletin nor a specific NXT model (AT, FX, FS).

Thanks for the information!

Sean

Ah - It sounds like you're leaving your bindings on the board and putting
the whole lot into a board bag. I remove my bindings, put the boots in
them and pack them on their side. Obviously you then need to pack a tool
to do the bindings back up, but then you carry one anyway don't you? :-)

Heh. I see the light now. Yes, I leave my bindings mounted and it's not
caused any problems in a dozen or so round trips out of ATL. And yes, I have
an awesome set of tools. Smile

Sounds like a solid idea.

Cheers,

Sean

And yes, I have an awesome set of tools that travel with me. The trusted #2
philips head is a must.

Thank you for the information. I didn't know about the problem. I
requested an upgrade today.

I've been satisfied with my NXT FX bindings.

I went thru 2 pairs of Ride SPI's - they both were returned due to defective (Revolver) ratchets. The straps would literally vibrate loose.

I had some Flow F11s for years and they were great. I tried some newer Flows, but they had bulky rivets in the powerstrap for the buckles and they caused pain in my pinky toe, so those went on ebay.

Then I tried the K2 Cinches - those are very comfy, but the release on the toe strap sticks up. When I was on the lift that release would brush up against other people's skis and boards and I'd end up with the toe strap loose when I got to the top of the mountain. So I ended up redoing the toe strap a few times a day, which defeats the whole idea behind the Cinch.

I ended up with the Salomons SPX 55 (now called the Pro). I'd check out their line up of bindings.
