With the order of our new boat, my dad got thrown in a set of bindings of my choice. I can get any company and any model, but don't have the chance to try any on or demo them on the water. I want something high end with a soft footbed because I have problems with my heels. I'm leaning toward either the new closed toe Murray's or the hinge tec Zeus's, but am open to any suggestion. Any opinions guys?; price is not a factor
Not that it matters but I ride a HL parks...

I never tried the Murray's but I own the 06 Zeus and really like them so far.

I have the 05 Murray's and they are the best ones that I have ever rode with. I have also used the Split's/States, Watson's, and the Alpha's. I liked the Watson's, but the Murray's are by far the most comfortable, best hold, and best fitting that I have used.

Thanks guys, it's final. After a couple weeks of being on the edge of my seat and 4 consecutive weekends of demoing boats with the dad in the fall, we finalized the order of the X1. I don't know how I'm going to last these last months of winter with this much anticipation (it's our first wakeboat). And oh yeah, I went with the Zeus's mainly cause I like the innovativeness (word?) of the hinge tec and ease of entry... Once again thanks for everthing and the second we pick up the ride in the spring you all will be the first to see some pics.

the zeus's are great bindings but they are not right for everyone. they seem to have a really locked-in stiff feel. if this is what you like then they will be perfect but if you are tweaking the s#!t out of your grabs then there are better bindings.

Well come to think of it, should I get the Zeuses in a large instead of a medium?? My foot size is about a 9.5...The site says mediums are for size 8-10. I don't want to outgrow them in a season. Anyone have any suggestions; I need an answer by tomorrow if I'm gonna change. Thanks

I'd get the Large. I have a size 8 foot and they are tight. As for tweaking, it's what i do (check my profile pic), if you want them a little looser you just don't cinch the laces as tight.

get the large--they do run a little smaller compared to last year's bindings. I have a size 9.5 and wear the medium bindings, but I like them super tight. The Zeus bindings are the best bindings I have ever had---you will love them!!!

I ride the zeus. I have a size ten and ride a large. It depends also on foot width. I stretched mine out and they are perfect.

If you like the LF binding and the Murray binding, you should also try the CWB Fuse. It's stiff like the Murray boot.

good job on the binding decision and the boat. and also, if you find that you dont like the bindings, sell them in the classified section or on ebay!
what extras did you order with the boat?

I am debating on buying some 05 zeus and I wear size 11. The place where I am buying them from are cheap cheap! They only have XL so I was wondering what people thought, if they would fit me or not, because XL supposedly fits 12-13. Thanks
