My 08 absolute got ripped off from my boat a couple weeks back so I was in the market for a new board. Donít have tons of money to spend so was looking mostly at 09s since you can find really good deals on clearance. Ultimately, I decided to get an 09 Lyman 143 off of Evogear.com. I planned to couple this with the 09 Transits.
Decided better check eBay and found a pair of brand new 08s for really cheap, $60 shipped. Heard good things about them so I picked them up. So Iím sure some of you already know my dilemma. The 08s and 09s had different length hole patterns, that Iím not sure I completely understand. Long story short I have one stance width option at this point with the pro plates that came with the bindings. Might be okay, just got it yesterday and havenít actually rode it, but would like to know what options I have to at least give me a couple different choices when it comes to setting up my stance. Not concerned with angles, got that figured out.
So it seems like they have some retro clamps, whatever, that will take the smaller 6Ē plates to the larger hole patterns but is there anything I can do to do just the opposite, i.e. can I fit the 6Ē plates on my 08 transits? Something else? I did a lot of searching on these forums, internet, etc. and Iím still a little confused. I found some si replacement plates that look like they could potentially work but donít want to purchase without being a 100% sure. Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.
