Default BOA lacing system ? is it durable

I'm in the market for new pair of boots for this up comming season . I'm comming from and old pair of Burton Shaun white 07 boots that stood the test of time .. now my major concern is should I go with tradional laces or BOA ? My concern with. Boa is that the knob is gonna break and my very expensive boots just became shit and are now worthless ... Its not so much the cable I'm worried about its the knob .. when I go ride I'm not the "gentle " rider that goes through the motions of riding, I charge down I'm a very aggressive rider that goes in n out the trees hit lil features etc etc so I am wondering if anyone who is a similar rider went with boa lace system on there boots for a COUPLE seasons and how are the conditin now and did they give you any trouble ?

I have heard of the boa cord snapping on day 2, but a friend of mine has k2s with it and he loves it so far with no problems.

aren't they guaranteed for life? I've only had a pair (Vans Auras) for half a season, so about 15-20 outings. it's the side knobs that take all the punishement, and I've hit them pretty bad more than once. no problems to report. the ones on the front of the boot are pretty much out of the way. so if you're really worried just go for a single BOA, but I think you would be fine with a double too. they're designed for snowboarding right? a lot of snowboarders go "in and out of the trees" and "hit little features."

I heard that laces become loose after a single run and you have to tighten them up again and again and again. Tat's my main concern with BOAs

My '13 Ride Insanos have held up well. No loosening at all. No wire breakage. But I might replace the wire before next season just because I notices a slight kink. It would be more preventative than anything else.
