me, I just like them more than the others.

It's what i used when i got my first board, and i just never felt comfortable when i tried scrub, so i Put the freeflx back on.

I jsut find them more comfortable and i feel better riding, especially since i live in a area where the majority of the terrain is either felt or a very gnetla slope.

I spend most of my time jumping down gaps, off ledges, and stairs. I can slide my feet in and out so i get going faster.

I like the old-style Free-Flex bindings (ones with the red, white and blued logo). Great for street.

I haven't used no sno's bindings but i must admit that they look really good. Would love to give them a go. Just look like a pain in the ass to do up everytime you get on the board.
I live life a quater mile at a time. And when i'm not doing that i'm riding my mountain board.

I actually have different bindings for different boards,freeflex,f3,talons, but the board I ride the most has an old pair of Burton free styles with the high backs taken off.

MBS F3s rule and are the only bindings I've ever used

though those Talons look savage! If my f3s break thats what I'll be replacing them with!

I cant help but think that there has to be a better option out there, I would love to see something like a flow binding that covered the entire top of your foot so that you would get absolutely no heel lift while riding. Chances are such a binding would probably slowly expel your feet, but it would be a nice feeling if it didnt.

another ultimately pointless yet in some/no way helpfull feature would be a tension sensitive binding like a modern car seatbelt. If your foot starts to slip i tightens holding your foot on..? easy idea to pick holes in :(

I wore flow bindings for like 2 years, they work great .I just started to not like the high backs all the time ,but by wearing the Burton free styles without the high backs, I love'em because you still have the band that goes around your heal. You never have to worry about your foot working out.

Tried the new MBS F2 bindings tonight. Like the new strap/binding design much better than the old F2s. Easy in and out for street carving too.

The mounting bracket still digs into the outside of your foot though -- that sucks. Think I've figured out a way to fix that problem. Just have to find the right materials.
