I wonder how the binding stance is adjusted.

jarrod 08-23-2006 2:04 PM

It looks stupid. <BR> <BR>As a good friend of mine would say..."more closed toe gayness"

dakid 08-23-2006 2:07 PM

that looks bad ass! i can't wait to try it.

wakedestroyer 08-23-2006 2:10 PM

binding stance would be adjusted by moving the screw to a different hole...

Harris and J-Rod, awesome replies <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

harris, it looks like the baseplate could be adjusted as well. similar to FAST system. <BR> <BR>screw a different hole! <BR> <BR>(Message edited by denverd1 on August 23, 2006)

eubanks01 08-23-2006 2:35 PM

Well Duh! But if you look at it, the hole that is being used would cause the binding to be pointed more in than out...like it is. I would guess it is like the fast system but I wasn't sure what else might be in play.

airrantz 08-23-2006 2:36 PM

I personally think they look sweet. Closed toe = warm toes. I can't tell if they help my edging technique like some people claim, but if anything they keep my feet warmer which is worth it in my book. I don't see any downside other than looks and that is all personal preference. I can't wait until O'Brien starts making a pair and Aden converts to them. Haha just messing with yah man.

aden_g 08-23-2006 2:39 PM

So don't use that hole, Eubanks. <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR> <BR>Ryan, I can't wait either <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by aden_g on August 23, 2006)

They look better to me then the other closed toe bindings on the market,I would like to put a pair on my board and give them a try and see whats up. Is that glue on the back bottom leaking out of the binding? looks like it.

briand 08-23-2006 4:42 PM

Jeff, it could be binding lube?

innov8 08-23-2006 4:47 PM

I dont think so, I guess it could be anything, but it looks alot like the glue that holds soles to shoes.

aden_g 08-23-2006 5:56 PM

Joe, I always do <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

wakeslife 08-23-2006 8:57 PM

well they look better than the shanes, murrays, or 3ds IMO...

xtremebordgurl 08-23-2006 9:53 PM

Just my .02 but I love my 3ds and I think the all black is sharp. Not sure I'm a fan of the looks of the above boot but then again its not about looks its about performance. One thing I don't get tho is the basplate... that looks like the same baseplate from like 5 years ago. I would think the O'briens could be a little more creative on a baseplate design, unless there is more there than meets the eye. And if thats the case I will insert foot in mouth.

aden_g 08-23-2006 9:59 PM

I think that is still the best baseplate design to this day. <BR> <BR>I have not tried the LF system, and I have heard good things, but I hate the O'Brien/Hyp thing they have going on with the claws.

7islands 08-23-2006 10:17 PM

i totaly agree with you aden...and anyway, my guess is that this wont be the official baseplate for there bindings..

xtremebordgurl 08-24-2006 8:23 AM

I really loved the claws, made adjusting super easy with way more options for different positions.
