I have only had one other pair of bindings so far considering I am basically just getting into boarding. But I can officially say that the flows are an amazing binding. The M11 binding was perfect for me because it was well priced and was also perfect for my all-mountain riding. I have been up three times this season (2009-2010) but I will definately be up more. These binding make it easier for me to get in and out of them. This is all without me tweaking them. I will probably be tweaking them to make them fit me better.
