Lashed 32 Boot Problem--Any Suggestions?

Hello,

I picked up a pair of Lashed 32's over the off season and i just used them for the first time over new year's weekend. I ran across a small problem that I was hoping someone would be able to offer some insight on.

After about an hour or so on the mountain, my heel would have a lot of freedom to move up and down if i was toe side. After a while, my ankles and calves were killing me because the range of motion was something i wasnt use to.

I stopped riding and retightened everything but i ran into the same problem shortly thereafter.

I am thinking i may have to tightnen everything up. I read some stuff about j-bars on burton boots but that doesnt help me too much.

Any ideas?! Last year my first year snowboarding and I just bought my gear this year so i could totally be doing something wrong. thanks for the help

sounds like the boots dont fit properly. i acutally have the same problem because after riding my boots for the last 4 years or so they packed out like crazy and are too roomy inside now, no matter how much i tighten them.

Yeah, I was thinking it might be the fit which kind of sucks because they were nice and snug when i tried them on. I have big feet (size 13) so i didnt have a ton of options.

I didnt think of gluing in J-Bars. Anyone know where you can find them to buy? I was trying to find them online and I didnt have much luck.

And thanks for the help
