BOA's have their advantages, but I will probably never stray away from laces,, unless I discover a boot that fits extremely well for me. Laces provide more customized options for the user. I never have a problem getting my laces tight. They can get just as tight as the BOA if the proper lacing method is used.
I also recommend not limiting your boot options to just the BOA style. You eliminate many other possibilities of a good fitting boot. I have posted this YouTube video on lacing boots in the past. This might help you get a tighter fit with your laces. YouTube - Snowboard Boot Guide - Traditional Lacing
This is the method I use, and believe me it works.
