Just talked to a rep and found out some stuff about 2006 hyperlite and Liquid Force. No one needs to bash Hyperlite because that is not the purpose of this thread. Anyway back on topic here is some stuff I have heard.

Hyperlite: Coming in mid August, You are not going to see any bindings like before. 2-3 pro model boots will be close toe (snowboard influenced) and all new meterial inside and out. The other bindings will just be different material inside and out and WAY more cumfy. Once again no need to bash but they are suppost to blow LF bindings out of the water. The Premier, Byerly, and Murray boards will all be changed and maybe changes in other boards too.

Lquid Force: Bindings are already awesome and probably won't see to many more changes except they will be trying to make them more durable. Also you might see some price increases because of higher quality materials. Another thing, They are going to be a lot more pro model bindings for a lot more of their team. Basically more of their riders will have their own boots. So their won't be only three high end bindings. Also more riders on their team will have their own pro model boards including Phil Soven whos pro model board and bindings setup will be unbeatable in their line up!! Soven will have his own bindings and board along with a few other riders.

CWB: 2006 will deffinetly be there biggest year as they will be pushing their bindingis from great to incredible. Should see many changes for the better to bindings and new 2006 boards will also be awesome. Graphics are suppost to be like the sickest graphics ever and seing what 2005 was like, those graphics will be hard to beat.

I'm sure the rep told you these things in confidence that you wouldn't go out and post them up on the internet. Not cool bro. The CWB graphics are cool, I could post on and on about them but that pretty much ruins the entire point of keeping everything secret until it's released. The CWB boots are gonna be friggen sweet!!

if it's a secret, a rep shouldn't be telling an average joe anyway (presuming william is an average joe).

what does a closed toe boot do for you? gimmick, cough gimmick
I suppose if it was a perfectly closed toe boot then the suction would allow you to almost never fall out... good or bad?
and you would never have your foot slip forward...*edit
"The Premier, Byerly, and Murray boards will all be changed and maybe changes in other boards too."
If you haven't noticed, Hyperlite cycles their pro model boards usually changes shape every 2 years, no surprise with new shapes, now how will the new shapes stack up to what they replace...
I've heard some negative things about this years Zues quality so we'll see what they do with the boots... and last years LF quality did not impress me, I hope the 05s will hold up... Price increase at LF does not surprise me, their bindings are cheaper and more comfy than anyones, people will pay... I think HYPE needs to drop the price of theirs though... 380 for the Murray, SICK boot but no thanks on the pricetag

interested to see how sovens board will be, I think the 131 pro model of last year was hot, and I ride a 138-140 normally

closed toe boots dumbest gimmick EVER! What is the point? This is not snowboarding. What happens when you land a scarecrow and your foot trys to go through the front? I would think you are going to have some problems, maybe a few broken toes or missing toenails perhaps..... What are they going to tell you just buy a size or two too big so then you won't have that problem you will just have to put them back on every time you crash but maybe its just me and I don't see the cool factor in them.
