busted my boot up, time for some new ones! need some help!
 
Well tonight after loading the boat with more ballast then I ever have, and charging the wake mucho gusto I came off a little off center and landed the same way in an ugly digger. Once the birdies stopped singing I got my board off and noticed it was loose in the heel area.

And we have this

Take note of the rear bolt hole, no more threads, and the 2 smaller rear(middle) holes the heads of the bolts broke off.

These are 08 Watson CT. They were on top of an 08 Shane 140.

I planned to upgrade to an 2010 Watson 139 once they go on sale, and I wanted to go with some Ronix boots.

Will all the ronix boots fit my 08 shane, and the 10 watson?

What type of Ronix boots do you recommend. I want to stick with CT boots.

THANKS!

Pretty sure you'd need the plate adapters to run any new boot on a 2008 shane. You should be able to find them at your local pro-shop.

Comming from the watsons you'd probably think you'd like the Ronix Ones the most. They're supportive but not super stiff. If you like really stiff go with the Cells (thats what I ride now). Both are really comfortable.

only a 139 watson? you know bigger is better right? haha.

ronix boots come with a spacer and the 08 LF boards were 7 inch spaces I think? so should still be right with full width stance.

Ben,
Thanks for that link, that chart rocks!

After doing some more research it looks like I will be buying my boots/board sooner than later, and Im now looking at the Ronix One boots with a One Board or a Ibex board.

Thoughts?
