But these bindings did not work for me. I have a big foot and I could not make the proper adjustments needed to make the bindings fit and trust me I tried! I had to suffer that day and eventually switched out my Flows for my Freestyles. Just couldn't get right!! Great binding for smaller footed riders though;-)

These are my third pair of bindings I've had so I can compare them to the Burton Mission's and Rome Targa's.
Pros: Highback rotation, great heelside response, rear entry is quick in and out, design and colors are cool, powerstrap works nice and is comfortable.
Cons: the rear entry can get caught in the back of your boot and potentially damage it, cheap paint started chipping away even before I finished mounting it! fortunately its black underneath for the black/white model, Wont work on really big/bulk boots (barely got in my '08 Burton Moto's), base heavy.
Overall, the rear entry setup is nice but it needs some work. If you're just riding down the mtn for fun then you can keep the strap loose and just step in and go but most of the time I have to stop to tighten down the straps anyways. If I tighten them down too much then I cant slide my boot out. This might be an issue with my boot compatibility more than the design tho. I think Im gonna rock them for a little while longer but will probably end up trading them in for some K2 Cinches instead. I've heard those actually push your boot forward into the strap which would solve the biggest issue I have with these bindings. I do like the powerstrap, even though it doesn't have much toe support. They're definitely freeride bindings. Only one foot cushion on the top of the binding. its nowhere near the cushioning and adjustability that the Rome Targa's provide. My final ranking for bindings I've owned so far would go to the Targas 1st, and these are tied with the Missions for 2nd.

These are the most comfortable bindings I have ever owned. I had a pair of "The Fives" that broke after a couple of days so I upgraded myself to these. Best decision of my life. When I have these bindings on it's like my foot is part of the board, there is no "strap pull" or uncomfortable pinch. The bindings are quick, easy, flexible, stylish, and comfortable. If you are new to flow bindings it might take a little while to get acclimated to them, my brother tried my board on and it took him an hour or so to adjust to the feeling of being in the binding without a strap pulling you down. If you already ride Flow, you'll love these flexible comfortable bindings.

Got these bindings about a week ago and rode on them for a week straight to losen them up. At first i hated them becaues my boots were a lil too big and the rear entry was hard to get used to at first. since i never have owned a flow biding before. after they got a lil broke it they were easy but hard to ride with because you gotta leave it a lil loose otherwise u cant get yur boot in and out. smaller booter = perfect bindings. bigger boots = tough times
Ide say overall they are pretty sick but need a lil work on the rear entry design.

I bought these bindings about three weeks ago and i love them. they are very easy to get in and out of, but take a little getting used to if you are switching from regular strap bindings. I like everything on these bindings except for that the silver paint on the lever on the back rubs off kind of easily, but other than that these are great
