As far as boots go, this is how the Ronix stuff Generally lines up
Reliks - Most flexible boot in the Ronix lineup, somewhat of a lower cut.
Ones - Not to stiff not to flexible. Basically right in between the cells and the Reliks.
Cells - Stiffest boot in the Ronix lineup.
Hole Patterns 09 vs 08
As you have pointed out there is a new hole pattern width, 7inches, (previously 8 inches) on the 09 Ronix boards. And the 09 boots now have a 6 inch base (previously a 8 inch base). However, this does not mean that 09 boots are "difficult" to put on an 08, 07, or any other 8 inch hole width board. All the pro model Ronix boots come with aluminum spacers which allow them to be mounted on any 08, 07, or any other 8 inch hole width. All the 09 Ronix boot boxes come with an easy to understand diagram that explains this even more.
