they could probably hook you up with the new laces for 2012. they are just a hair thicker, thus more durable. they seem to glide better through the "lace-tubes" too.
for me it was not as quick as the lace-instalation-video describes on the slingshot website to install the laces. i had to use some floral wire as a needle to thread the laces through some areas. just took some time is all but well worth it
