Looking to upgrade from my (‘07?) Burton Missions to something more responsive and with more stiffness. Boot size is 8.5 and I still use old school Palmer Power Plates for a bit of rise, but further eliminating boot out to lower binding angles is always a priority - currently I think I’m around 36-21 and can still wash out on heelsides easily with a 250mm waist. So shaving a cm here and there would be great - I find the Missions have a lower plastic heelcup and an over-the-toe strap that serve to add drag material on both sides. I’ve heard good things about the Drake, Flow and Ride, and can get them all fairly easily - but I can only check out the Flow in-store. I’ve checked out the Cartels which may do, but they also seem to have a big low heelcup. Has anyone compared these bindings? I’m leaning towards the Flows but do read some mixed reviews about how well the straps secure boots. Many thanks for all input!
