I demo'd a pair of the new LF Teams last weekend and I liked them a lot. However- on both bindings I tore through the plastic eyelets on the back where the laces go through.

I don't think I even pulled them that much, but enough to get them tight.

is this a common problem on these boots, so I should stay away from them? I'd also like a little tighter hold around my toes, would the Transit's of Sphynx's be better?

the Team's were damn comfy though.

This happened to me the first time I tried them on.

HAH!

Locking into a pair of Limited Teams for the first time last Sunday morning and just like you guys I pulled through the plastic eyelet. Exchange in process for a set of transits.

This cannot be coincidence! I'm thinking major defect.

That happened to me the first time, all you have to do is tie a bigger knot.

Andrew,

How does tying a bigger knot prevent the lace from breaking thru the plastic eyelet? In my case the lace ripped clean through the eyelet leaving me slack line, it didn't pull out the end of the lace.

actually when I was trying them, both happened.
Once I pulled the knot loose, but I fixed that like Andrew, just tied it bigger.

The main thing was the eyelet actually tearing/ripping through. Nothing you can do about that I suppose.

Damn...sounds like this is epidemic. I'll try some Transits and Sphynx asap. Although I didn't like the way the Transits felt when I tried them on at the shop.

OH, never mind I was talking about the end of the lace. Before I tied the bigger knot they pulled through really easily.
