Strengths: More control than any binding ever made. Arguably one of the most customizable setups on the market. You`re locked in every time with consistency. With the high back down your can easily lock it back up right off the lift without having to spend 20% of your day on your ass. Freeride and Freestyle straps included make this a very versatile setup. Don`t really understand why the anonymous dude above says it doesn`t handle pow or ice. Unless you adjusted them incorrectly and they`re lose your bindings should have nothing to do with handling ice or snow. That`s your board. I freeride mostly at high speed on groomers and pow with this binding on an mtx board, together that setup handles like an 07 lexus.
Weaknesses: The hardware that fastens the straps to the base plate suck. I changed them out with nuts/bolts and sleeves from the hardware store.

Strengths: The Flow Team Bindings are unbelieveably impressive. Definitely the best bindings Flow has ever produced. Flows have taken a lot of slack for producing heavy bindings in the past but the Team models are incredibly light. The weight is comparable to Burton`s Mission or Cartel bindings. Besides being lightweight, these bindings are super responsive. The magnesium base is solid, the carbon highback is responsive, and the powerstrap really holds your boots in and transfers energy when going toeside.
I ride these bindings on any terrain. When in the park, I just loosen up the strap a bit and that gives me just the right amount of forgiveness on jumps. The bottom of the bindings is covered with rubber which adds more cushion when landing jumps.
The best feature that these bindings have that no other bindings do is the level of adjustment you can make on them. The highback and the ankle strap both have 5 different settings. In addition, the highback cable has four different settings which allows you to adjust the power triangle angles and the amount of forward lean. In addition, like all other Flows, there`s an adjustment on the highback that lets you fine tune the forward lean.
Speaking of adjustments, I was able to turn my large bindings into a size medium for one of my friends to use. All I had to do was to put axis point of the highback and the cable in the most forward position and my friend was to ride them like a medium.
Weaknesses: My only problem with the Team bindings is the price tag. They retail for $500. Once I rode them, though, the price seemed more reasonable to me. I got mine for $300, but after riding them I would pay $500.
Compared to all the bindings ever made, I would put the Flow Team in the top 3 for all around performance.

Strengths: lightweight, i like the design
Weaknesses: poor quality, hiback is holding with 2mm screws (i allready broke 3), loosing toggles when your boot is inside is allmost impossible because of bad design they are stuck of something, highly overpriced, the holes in baseplate are too small so you cannot use standard screws when you broke or lost the original ones (happens too often for my taste), stay away from this.. and based on my experience with this FLOW "top model" , i never buy FLOW again, ever
