I was wondering... haven't kept up with the thread at all because of college and stuff, but why is there no longer a Belmont signature series?
I am looking at the Temet bindings and prolly a new premier 136 or 141... currently riding an 02 140 premier and 00 3060 bindings (starting to rip).
I was also wondering how much tweaking I should expect to do on new bindings. When I got my 3060s new they had to be broken in... size large, my friend gets Byerlys this year, size large... bigger feet than me and he pre-released in mid air once and had to tighten the wraps down, I still havent tried them... feel they are too big and loose for me... SO back to my questions... should I go for medium large Temets or large? size 9.5 shoe... 8.5 ski boot... I like my stuff form fitting and snug but comfortable.
Has anyone ridden the 04 gear yet... when should I expect to see it out, I dont expect to buy till spring seeing as college students budget is tight (I should get a job, worken off saved money from the summer now...) How reliable is the BOA system, my friend hasnt had any problems but Im just looking for a larger scale opinion...

i have size 10 feet and use a medium. i have the new era boots (ruck) and there super comfy. i like them snug as well so i would say medium or midium-large would be perfect.

The Temets run big. I'd get them a size smaller than what you usually wear.

The BOA system works great. I have seen them break, but no more often than regular lace-up systems.

What about the board?
I ordered a temet at my shop,
Do you have an experience with this new board?
I'm not sure about my choice.
For my first season, I rode the motive LF.

My friend has an 04 premier 136 or whatever it is and a 138 temet. According to him and my wife, who has ridden both, they are both great boards but very different from eachother. My wife is going to buy an 04 premier after riding his a couple times.

the belmont series is now called the temet series. if youve got 9.5 feet i would reconmd a medium boot. the new temet board is a great board. super big pop, hold its edge really well yet still feels loose.
