I had Flow Flite 3 bindings, but the inferior clip design allowed the clip post on one highback to break off. The Flow Flite 3's were replaced under warranty with M9's due to the others were out of stock. I am extremely pleased with the design quality of these and the highback clip design. I have only been able to use them twice since I received them, but they have performed flawlessly. While they may take a few more minutes to adjust (the lean angle), for the money, they are awesome and they look radical on my board too.
