anybody still ride the shackles? I know they went out of business, but I was just wondering.

walt 07-20-2004 7:51 PM

I do.

thane_dogg 07-20-2004 8:06 PM

do you know if Mike is still selling/making boots? I had his e-mail but I lost it.

walt 07-20-2004 8:13 PM

As of last year, I was still riding my vandall solbounds (and I plan to continue to do so, at some point. They're probably the best bindings I've ever had and I love them to death.

blah...no offense to those that like them or is a good friend of mike rogers, but man, they are the WORST bindings i've EVER ridden! no way would i ever trust my ankles in them, nor would i trust the footbed, or lack thereof! <BR> <BR>

kevin_bird 07-20-2004 11:38 PM

now what was the point of that?

dakid 07-20-2004 11:49 PM

because it's a message board...i'm allowed to express my opinion, right? i mean it's a thread about solbounds...i'm expressing my thoughts on them. <BR> <BR>disclaimer: i've never met rogers...my opinion on the bindings in no way parallel my opinion on rogers as well. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by dakid on July 20, 2004)

Joe, you must be referring to the old solbounds. Mine are two year old (or something) and the footbed is actually pretty thick. I'll post a picture later tonight, but it isn't thin. <BR> <BR>And I thought the support was really good, but that's just me...again, maybe it has to do with the fact that they were a newer model...or not...

dakid 07-21-2004 3:13 PM

electricsnow, yeah, maybe you're right. all i remember was that i was so paranoid in them, and that each landing hurt. <BR> <BR>these are the ones i rode... <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/180327.jpg" alt="">

Those have a different foot bed than mine.
