I am looking for a little stiffer bindings then the Parks. Are the Temets any stiffer?

aaronlee13 10-08-2003 10:28 AM

I think they are... With all those different laces and that wire, it really clamps your feet in... It was very comfortable to, only thing i didnt like (which could of just been that pair) was some part near the top of the binding was rubbing against my lower calf.. Not sure if it was the pair i was useing of if they all were like that

Try the Barleys.

I dont think any of the Hyperlites are very stiff, I had an ankle injury last year, been riding 30/60's and Byerly's , this year switched to LF Exos. Lot stiffer overlay rubber, more ankle support, but harder to get in/out.

Try the highbacks. They are still very comfy for a tall boot. I was very surprised at how well they worked and felt.

i agree with the highbacks

04 Highbacks are stiffer than the previous years. <BR>But also wider in the forefoot.

You know you want the CD bindings foo. Combat boots are now in style.

I have had bad ankles for many years, and it was really hindering my wakeboarding enjoyment. I went out and tried on every Hyperlite binding and the Highbacks were definitely the stiffest. I bought the 03's, then the 04's came out about a month later, and they are definitely a step above. When the 04's go on mega sale (probably end of next season), I will step up and buy some.

Ok thanks of all the help.

Check mine out, very supportive,if they are too supportive just loosen the laces. Plus you can do them for under $200. 02 ultras with 03 belmont overlays over the top of everything<IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> I have super bad ankles and these really help. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/85470.jpg" alt="">

Matt - that is really cool. Sweet idea. <BR> <BR>the '04 highbacks do have an extra piece of EVA added to the heel rubber to make them super stiff very similar to a snowboard boot. I've put them on and they are very stiff.

O'brien ions are simalar to matts rig. I've ridden parks, belmonts, ultras, zeus and ions. Ions are definatly the most supportive/stiff of all of them.
