it looks like they are changing the baseplate again?
Old     (chrism4668)      Join Date: Sep 2007       08-05-2008, 4:01 AM Reply   
yeah baseplate is another inch shorter they are now six inch plates not seven inch. i believe also that all the boards are running the 3 hole pattern now.

Will the new baseplate affect how the bindings attach to older boards?
Old     (wakerider111)      Join Date: Jul 2006       08-05-2008, 7:35 AM Reply   
3 hole? wha? how does that work?

as for sovens, they don't look too tie-die-ish. But they look perfect for a representative for McD's that i know of. The adjustable height thing must be that the velcro slides up and down the back of the boot on some track system... what is to say they wont slip down after a while? just guessing here
Old     (rdhwk10)      Join Date: Jul 2004       08-05-2008, 7:42 AM Reply   
There are still just two bolts holding the bindings to the board, just 3 positions on each side instead of 4 like they have been using. It's not the 4-hole pattern that slingshot uses.

The Shanes would be cooler if they stuck with two colors. Just blue and black, maybe with an accent color of white or gray, but as they sit, there are too many colors going on for me. The Sovens look pretty good.

Is the Shane going to be an all new shape? I am assuming so since there are different sizes. Watson is getting a refined shape too isn't he?

Neon is the color for '09.

The color on the Obrien board and boots (white and gold) looks like the Shane for a year or two ago.

They should put little wheels on the bottom, so when you are not wakeboarding you can skate around

Cire is correct, 09 is all about the 80's neon colors!!

Hey Jeff,
We have our fair share of neon coming in the '09 line. Can't wait to get you the catalog.

looks like LF took a nike 6.0 shoe to the ronix boot factory. look at the open toe boot, just like a ronix open toe boot, and the baseplate, just like ronix. they've lost that "lf look" to them.

I heard hyperlite has the reebok pump in thier boots...funny that picture was posted.

How about some Crocs wakeboard bindings? that would be sweet!

Or some Uggs bindings for the ladies.

Just curious, but has anyone here ever paid $689 (or $649 for that matter) for a pair of bindings?

As for the first 3 pics on this thread, all I have to say is people on ludes should not drive.

What is LF thinking?

i think liquid force finally realized that their bindings were too heavy. The material just looks thinner to me like the ronix bindings, i bet the 09 stuff is gonna be out of this world. Not diggin shanes lame taste in colors, even though the open toe colors look sweet

Looks like a dayum good reason for me to keep my 07 shane's. Best boots i've ever worn. It may be the color choices or something that's makin me feel this way...but do all the boots look kind of "cheap"? as in not very durable.

By the way....please tell me this is all the "limited" stuff and not the regular 09 gear! if its the regular stuff it looks like the guys at LF decided to take the "limited" gear and make it the "regular" line...

Snowboarding leads the tend. Watch what happens in the snowboard industry this upcoming winter. What color are the boards and boots and what are they doing with the snowboard clothing?

I will bet that what you see this winter in snowboard will carry over to what you see next spring and summer for wake.

umali likes em, so they must be cool.
all i have to say is that i hope they have completely exhausted themselves making these products durable/lighter/more comfortable/etc... before they start talking about how the hot pink is going to compliment the magenta and turqoiuse and really "pop" out in photos...what I am saying is i hope they put as much money into R and D as they did trying to copy Nikes 2006 shoe line. atleast nothing has any of those "all-over" prints that look like kids pajamas. wow, i actually had alot to say. sorry.

Bindings are looking more and more comfy every year, and they also look more integrated every year as far as the construction. I am surprised this didn't happen sooner in the industry.

People! this almost exact argument happened last year with the LTD Shanes. These new boots are sweet the colors are out there but hey thats what this sport is all about! the amount of people that said they hated the LTD Shanes last year and then got them i think LF will have no problem with these which I think are so much better looking than last years. My 2cents

Neons comin back weather you like it or not. I personally don't like the crazy acid trip neon but a little bit is ok with me. I'm not an LF patron, so I'm not worried, I don't think Ronix will be goin pink green and purple any time soon.

ok with me

"Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new." - Thoreau

Except when those somehow, shockingly, they come back into fashion. I don't care if it's clothes, shoes, wakeboards, home furnishings, give me something clean, classic, that never goes out of style. To each their own, but the only reason I see to buy the latest fashion is to have something to laugh at when you flip through photos.
"Dad, why were you wearing a green tux at your wedding?" "Oh that was the fashion then, everyone was doing it."
