ok after my first day last dsunday riding these, i have some feedback , good and bad..
Ok first off they do work well as far as they hold you in and my foot didnt come out or move around after 2 sets. relatively comfortable and i actually had one of my better days ridng this year once i got the confidence to push it.. My driver said he thought i went bigger then hes seen in years and i was nailing stuff clean ive been sketchingof late.. bindings or just a good day? time will tell..
well my back foot seemed perfect fit and didnt even feel like anew booot , however the front/left foot seems to pinch a lot over my pinky toe and on one really big frontroll into the flats in which i nailed way over my toes i head a pop , turned out the toe strap skipped a link, basically loosened, didnt effect my landing but can shake my confindence thinking the strap can come loose on its own..i made an adjustment on that foot and will try again..
taking them on and off isnt faster because i never really had an issue with this but it may take a little more effort because swimming to the boat with the boots on and then taking the boots off without them being held down can be harder, however the fact that i have no laces on these mareks that are flailing around an im not contantly having to retioghten the laces as i am riding is ap lus.. they are comfortable and supportive.
round two tomorrow but i may have to modify the front toe cap piece , maybe ad in some rubber/neo piece where the gap is with alittle glue to make the fit more true or use a snowboard toe cap from burton as i saw someone in another post mention they did..
ill let you know how this round went..more feedback to come...
