Are there any real differences between these two bindings?

I'm not positive but I think the only difference between the 07s and the 08s are cosmetic. The 09s have a new baseplate among other things and are supposedly 2 lbs lighter per pair. I got a good deal on a pair of 07s at the beginning of the season and love them.

What size are they and what size shoe do you wear?

my 08's are 10-11, so I'm pretty sure that these are too

they changed the plate on the 08s from the 07s. They have a plate that also runs front to back to help prevent heal lift. You can read about it here. http://liquidforce.com/bindings_watson-ot.htm

I have a pair of 08's on the way cause I finally trashed my 07 transits that I got this spring.

There is a big difference IMO. I went from 06s to 08 CT and the extra support and and comfort really was shocking to me. The 08s have a new liner, the liquid liner 2. The footbed is a lot softer and moldable than before as well. I noticed they fit better much better side to side too. The changes are not just cosmetic + new plate.

Except that, the 08 are a lot comfortable than the 07!!! Great boots with a conception problem!!!! Slingshot D2 are the best!!!

So what's more comfortable, the D2's or Watson's? I think I am ordering a new setup tomorrow and hopefully it will be here by labor day! I'm kinda also interested in the Slingshot Response. I'm coming from a HL Motive and am working on w2w's. I probably don't need a new board. But I want one and I have the money for it.
