the 05 alphas seem to go up a little higher on your leg then the 06 but my money would go towards the sphynx, they are great

I have got the 05's and have only gotten to ride them once and they were comfy and had good hold. The Sphynx's are more comfortable, but have alot of flex in them, makes it easier to poke things out with them. It comes down to whether or not you like stiff bindings.

I have the '05 Alphas and love them. The difference in the '06s is that there are two laces to tighten up. I have found myself wishing that there was a way to cinch up around the ankle that the second set of laces might fix. (I don't know if I said that in a way that makes any sense but go look at the pictures on this site of the '05s compared to the '06s and you should get an idea of what I mean.) <BR> <BR>If you are looking for the '05s you should get on it. I think that sizes are pretty limited and they are only getting harder to find.

So what you think are the best ones...the 05's or the 06's, do u mean u like the 2 laces to tighten on the 06 ??

I would prefer the two laces on the 06, makes for more adjustability, I got a good deal on the 05's that is why I bought them over the 06's.

yeah the prob is i dont know wut i want still, i either want the flexibilty for the sphynx or the better support for alphas....bc there both good support right?? I just dont know hahaha

I got the '05 Sphynx and for me the PROS are: quality construction, very cushy and comfy footbed, flexible support. The CONS: laces loosen sometimes, heavy. <BR> <BR>Never tried the Alphas, but if I were bying a new binding, I'd look at the Shanes first because of better support that the closed toe reportedly offers and that they're MUCH lighter than the '05 Sphynx (like two pounds per binding, if I'm not mistaken).. <BR> <BR>Just my $0.02...

pmart317 05-17-2006 4:48 PM

thanks bud...i just might go with the alphas though, the 05's

pmart317 05-18-2006 12:40 PM
