I had boas, cable broke, after they sent replacement parts, tried to fix, entire mechanism exploded into a bunch of tiny parts....back to laces...classic example of fixing something not broken.
BA swears he can only fit boas so I'm not one to argue with the resident bootfitter, but personal experience here, love my laces.
Will never go back to boa. No appreciable advantage.
Laces are hard?
