Turned my ankle pretty bad last fall, and just rode for the first time this spring. I have some 03' Byerly's and they are pretty nice, but the usual stitching around the BOA's is beginning to form. I like them alot, but seem to have some problems getting them tight to the point where I feel really good about the ankle support. <BR> <BR>Anyone got the new Temets?? How's the support?? How about the top BOA?? Are they the Bling for the dough, or just posing?? <BR>

Myself and some others talked about the Temets a bit in this post: <a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/1/101454.html?1079480499" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/1/101454.html?1079480499</a> <BR> <BR>Basically...I like the top BOA...it really grabs the area around your lower shin/upper ankle. If you crank down on the option 2 strap your heel won't budge a bit. I couldnt get the laces over the toes quite as tight as I would have liked, but overall I like the bindings a lot. It's kind of a pain to get into because you have to pull the laces tight, then crank downt he BOA, then fix the strap. <BR> <BR>fyi...i demo'd the Temets for 2 days...I normally ride 03 Byerly's like you (I was demo-ing temets because my Byerlys were gettin warranty work done, go figure) <BR> <BR>I don't think the Temets will hold up any better than the Byerly's...Temets appear to have some week points where I think the stitching will start to come undone like the Byerly's. <BR> <BR>I was trying an S-bend and took a nasty fall...My right foot came like half way out of the binding and it tweaked my foot/ankle a little. I think if I would have had my Byerly's on my foot would have popped out and I would have been ok, but the Temets held me a lot more at the heel and upper ankle so it only let my foot come half way out which was bad. <BR> <BR>Not that I want my feet popping out of bindigns, but when you take a really hard fall I'd rather have my feet come out and twist up my ankles.

Hey I have the new Temets and they are awesome and I broke my leg 2years ago and I had the parks they are nice but I needed that extra support in my leg so I switched to the Temetes and wont get anything else they give so much support you will have all the ankle support you need I would definitely get them

Thanks guys, definately something to consider now that the ligaments in my ankle are permenantly stretched and torn. I will have to demo them. I feel like the Byerly's could be a bit tighter around my injured ankle, but those were the first runs of the year. Overall I really like the Byerly binding, aside from the stitching coming apart. <BR> <BR>Thanks again.

Yeah I'm kinda po'd about Hyperlites quality of their bindings. I love my TFD board, but I'm thinking about going for some LF bindings next time around. <BR> <BR>Hyperlite is really good about their warranty, though it's a pain to have to send your stuff in for repair.
