So i gave this review 4 stars because i never actually used the bindings and don't want to discourage people from buying them. This is more of an FYI for anyone looking to get these in the Rat Rod color. In the pictures above and on the FLOW website itself, the 3D toe strap looks black. This is actually not the case, the top of it is black but it looks as though someone spilled a container of bleach on it. I originally thought this was a manufacturing defect, but after receiving a second pair i realized it was intended as even they suffered from the same result. So yeah i get it bindings are about performance and not so much as looks, but personally if i am going to spend 200+ dollars on brand new bindings i want them to at least look nice before i destroy them on the mountain.
Ended up going with the M11's. I'll post a review about their performance after i break them in. I would encourage dogfunk to add more pictures of this binding in Rat Rod so no one has to go through the same experience.
