I know a few people that still use them.

stephan 10-09-2007 9:05 AM

Upnorth, if you ever destroy your boots I know a guy that has the ability to cut new heel toe pieces. <BR> <BR>I know a few guys that have sworn by them for years and would rather ride them than anything ever invented. Its beyond me...

davidr 10-09-2007 10:57 AM

I still use Solbound, I have a couple pairs still. Would be willing to buy a couple more pairs if any one has some to get rid of. <BR> <BR>Big Heavy-Is that the original owner, or someone that does it on there own? I know spare parts are hard to find! Not impossible but pretty hard! later dr

john_v96 10-09-2007 8:47 PM

i rock them till the wheels fall off then make a call and stop by the solbound garage and get them fixed...

up until this summer a bunch of the west coast camps guys were rocking them schwenne, rod [then he git picked up by slingshot] and then beastmaster is still using them. they always told me u can poke anything with those bindings.

stephan 10-10-2007 9:16 AM

Beast is the guy that can make parts. <BR> <BR>Everyone was riding them at WCC. Now everyone but Mike, Beast &amp; Tim are rocking the Slingshot.

wazzy 10-10-2007 9:56 AM

I'd rock 'em if I could find 'em.... <BR> <BR>I am starting not to find any Collective Development anywhere any more either!!!

I was never a fan of the binding, but the owner is a cool guy that goes back to the begining of West Coast riding. He was very passionate about the sport and his visions. I know the guys that have rode them over the years swear by them. I know the last few times I talked with the owner he has wanted to bring them back, but insurance costs are holding him out. It will be intresting to see if all of the guys switch over to Slingshot as many of teh WCC guys have.

meathead65 10-11-2007 8:51 AM

Mike Rogers is one of the most stand-up, passionate guys I have ever known when it comes to this sport. <BR> <BR>It's a shame insurance and other factors limited his ability to keep Solbound going. <BR> <BR>Not to mention a riding style that was/is as pure as it comes.

magellan 10-11-2007 9:06 AM

Can't imagine a more polar opposite style than the flex of a Solbound to the stiffness of a moon boot like Slingshot.

stephan 10-11-2007 10:04 AM

You should see all the mods they did to their boot Magellan. They removed the inner laces completely and when you ride as frequently as those guys the boots break in a ton and get pretty flexy. Nowhere near as flexy as a Solbound but they get pretty nice.

electricsnow 10-13-2007 11:39 AM

If I still rode a wakeboard, I'd rock nothing else than my Solbound Vandal boots. <BR> <BR>HOLLA!!!

westsidarider 10-13-2007 11:49 AM

i think derrek cook has been riding the same pair of soulbounds for the past 5 years. not the same model, but the same exact pair have lasted him that long. kinda funny

liquidmx 10-13-2007 1:05 PM

Jason, Solbounds or CD's? Unless solbounds = CD's?

snwmot 10-13-2007 1:27 PM

dereck cook is still rockin the cd's he was telling me that they are super hard to find and he's worried he may have to find another binding soon.

westsidarider 10-13-2007 8:52 PM

oh yea they are cd's. my bad.

bond 10-13-2007 9:26 PM

That I can vouch for Johnny, He tears those bindings up and always go's back for more.

riverratboarder 10-14-2007 9:22 AM

Last time Aaron Aubrey stopped by, he was rocking Solbounds on both his boards. I loved them and they fit like no other. Just wished they had a softer footbed. Mike is cool and he still rides with family and friends.
