I have to agree with terrainjunkie. These bindings are the S#^t... hands down. I have been tired of sitting down and having to crank into my rental bindings. A good friend of mine has 2 boards that have Flow M9 and M11 bindings, for over 4 years of hard carving and spills. Not a single problem with the bindings. When my friends heard that I got these, were they envious. Granted I bought last years model. It took only 20 minutes to get them fitted to my boots. I can't wait till next weekend. I highly recommend Flow bindings.
