Hinge or no hinge...What are some of your feelings...Please.

I haven't tried on the Zeus, but i do have the torqs. And with getting in and out, there is no struggle at all. You can put them on dry without and lube, and its still really snug. I say go for the hinge tech.

hinge all the way, I have been using the torqs all summer, and I love them.

jarrod 08-10-2006 7:21 AM

Tough call. I ride/own both. Once the Fuses were broken in after a few rides, they were just as easy to get into as the Zeus, also with no lube. You should base your decision on stiffness. Do you want a lot of movement, or do you want a stiff boot? <BR> <BR>I have a bad ankle, so I favor the Fuse. <BR> <BR>If you're waiting for 2007 stuff, I suggest you also consider the Duce.

fumanchoo 08-10-2006 8:08 AM

Naw....I am going for the 06 for price.

darty 08-10-2006 8:14 AM

the zeus, much more support...&amp; lighter...

innov8 08-10-2006 8:24 AM

Cant go wrong with either binding, I would say demo both and see what you like better.

stephan 08-10-2006 9:02 AM

I haven't used the Fuse, but I could not imagine anyone ever needing any more support than what the Zeus offers. That boot is super stiff. The Hinge is where it's at, easy peasy japanesy.

fumanchoo 08-10-2006 9:04 AM

Any rips or tears in the bindings over the summer when used on a regular basis??

nathan1pure 08-10-2006 9:09 AM

I just tore one of my eyelits on the torq bindings. Called CWB and had a new toe rap in 5 days. Sweet! I love CWB customer service!

jim_b 08-10-2006 9:12 AM

I love my hinge tech's.

fumanchoo 08-10-2006 9:40 AM

one more question...do the sizes run true as they CWB says...large = 11-12??/Lf always seem to run small I wear xl in LF and I have a 10.5 to 11 foot.

jarrod 08-10-2006 10:09 AM

Guys...sorry but...the Zeus is NOT a stiff boot. <BR> <BR>"the zeus, much more support" <BR> <BR>Not true. <BR> <BR>"I could not imagine anyone ever needing any more support than what the Zeus offers" <BR> <BR>Destroy your ankle a couple of times and you'll feel differently. <BR> <BR>The Fuse allows less ankle movement.

stephan 08-10-2006 10:49 AM

Sorry J-Rod I do feel differently. I have broken my ankle(while riding) and it does bother me, while I do like the new Zeus I feel they are too stiff. Something about not being able to poke the board hard like a Derek Cook Stalefish, no way in the Zeus. Before this years Zeus I was riding the 05's and before that the 04's. I preferred the 04's but only after I took out the heel cup and the ankle strap, I like supportive but flexy. I think the Zeus is incredibly stiff, especially when compared to the Faction (my preferred boot). Any stiffer on the Zeus and its going to be used for a cast the next time you hurt your ankle. To each his own.

jarrod 08-10-2006 10:54 AM

I hear ya, and I agree. The Zeus is too stiff for you. I'm just saying in comparison to others, especially LF and HL boots. The Zeus is softer than many others. <BR> <BR>With that said, you would likely hate the Fuse.

trojanman 08-10-2006 11:28 AM

Heavy -- are you rockin the factions

stephan 08-10-2006 12:20 PM

Nope, I guess the first run was all sold and poor Big Heezy got left out. I certainly wish it were otherwise, then I could be on the Faction team like you cool guys. Josh, are you guys doing your tournament this fall? Please, say yes. CCAW is ready to mobilize!

guido 08-10-2006 1:15 PM

Yeah, Fuses are definitely the stiffest boot in the line. I think the Zeus' are a nice blend. Mine have held up all year without any problems.

trojanman 08-10-2006 1:25 PM

You better believe it baby... <BR> <BR>The tournament is coming back to Elsi, and it looks like were going to do a 2 day extravaganza with a rail jam and a surfing contest.

lizzyb 08-10-2006 1:25 PM

The new fuse bindings look pretty dope. I'd love to get some Torq bindings but their sizing is awful.

nzdude 08-11-2006 1:00 AM

fumanchoo 08-11-2006 3:23 AM
