Hey ladies! I am still pretty new to wakeboarding and am looking to buy a board. My friend has the 2007 Hyperlite Eden- 125 with mini bindings that she loves. She is a bit shorter and smaller than me. I am 5'6 115-120lbs. Any thoughts on the 125 or 130? She said she tried both and felt like she had more control with the 125.

standard is hyperlites low end "one size fits all" boot. i'm not sure about the mini that may just be a small size or the one size fits all for kids. idk. if i were you i would look at a higher quality boot they are WAY more comfortable and safer.

nevermind... i looked it up and the womens bindings except the syn are sized different this year. they are either mini or standard. my experience with hyperlite girls bindings have not been good. the syn do look ok though...

i would recommend trying liquid force boots if you get womens they are way better imo.

Hey! Dont know if my last message posted. Thanks so much for the help. I got two boards tonight to demo this weekend. 07 eden with eden bindings and 08 opal with 08 blur bindings. On first thought, the 07 bindings are super "tilted" and are putting tons of pressure on my calf. Granted I am not in the water yet but they do not feel great. The saleman told me the 08 were changed so they sat more vertical- and it seems they do feel better. Any thoughts?

I too say get lf bindings over the hyperlite ones. they last longer and are way comfier.

Some bindings are tilted, some are more vertical, it's all personal preference.
