Alright check this out, A freind of mine has been rocking these Murrays for a wahile now and as you can imaging they were FUBAR, Laces knotted more than you can imagine load points pulling out (which is a big problem with most bindings, I Felt really bad for him cuz he couldnt lace his boots up tight and it was holding him WAY back. I run a Gearbag manuf. Business so i stole his boots one night and did a Moding myself to help him out.I call it the "moose Mod."(this guy is 7'2" and we call him moose.
I can almost garruntee this mod will outlast the moose, reinforced webbing sewn in at the load points and stainless steel #2 Grommets for pulling the laces, Check It out. I would charge 50$ pair to do this, Beats 400$ new ones anyday.
