i prefer the straps, i think that step ins would be easier to use but strapies are much more dependable looking.

I have used step ins for 5 or 6 years and wouldn't be without them. The storwowner who sold them to me coached a boardercross team adn they all used the same bindings so that have to be relaible and at least equal in function.

I LOVE stepping in and going by everyone else who is sitting there in the snow strapping in - but to me the question is totally a personal preference!

I use strap-ins. I've seen some peoples feet come out of their stepins while ridiing. Also, I would hate not having a highback there on my heelslide turns. That would feel retarded. I can do my straps up on the chairlift and ride out from there so people don't have to wait.

Actually...I've used step ins once in my life, and if step-ins were the only way I could snowboard, I'd stop snowboarding....It just doesnt feel right....and every1 I've seen using stepins had problems with them. I know this guy who has Flow step-ins....and they REALLY's SO's incredible.....anyways....I really think straps are the best.

Can You say FLOWS????[size=7][/size][color=cyan][/color] Are the bindings of gods! At least goddesses such as myself... :wink: And If you don't like them then you need to get you head checked because all other bindings get screwed up the butt with a cactus in the middle of summer. :twisted:

oooo, thats ruff, i tried the step ins before, and i found that stepins can either be jawesome, or crap, mainly because sometimes you get the snow and ice in the binding, and that sucks, b/c then they dont work as well as they should, i love the straps, just b/c i feel safer, but the stepins i feel will advance in their techonolgy, thats when i will get them, but for now, ill stick with the straps... adios, mu chachos!

I don't like step-ins. I prefers straps because I feel more support and security. I've heard a lot of good things about flow bindings. I want to give them a try.

The stepins are evolving. I will be getting them next year. Stapin in at the top of the hill stinks.

strappin in takes along time but i prefer strapins b/c im in the park most of the time and i need to losen my bindings for some tricks and tighten them for others. with stepins they are the same all the time. plus stepins unclip in the park alot

if you have never heard of flow bindings you need to visit [url][/url] these bindings are by far the best to have they keep you secure to your board they are very very fast and easy to use check out the sight go to products then click on the binding icon and youll understand why they are much better then step ins or strap ins :!:

[QUOTE=LlOyD_A7X]ya ive herd of the flow bindings, i seen lots of ppl with them they dont look that bad[/QUOTE] I tried step ins when I just started and quickly switched to strap ins because you feel more secure. I'm not going to lie to you that the flow bindings feel different from the other two but they are definatly worth it ;-)
