Default getting boots (another thread)

i have narrowed itdown to 32 lashed or burton ambush both fit awesome and feel great im just skeptical about the quick lacing of the burtons i dont want to go somewhere and have the laces break and not be able to go and get it fixed. i like normal lacing becasue if something goes wrong you can jsut go buy another pair. anyone have any problems with the burton quick lacing? and is there another burton boot that is not as expensive as the ambush but will hold up against the lashed?

Just got a pair of Driver X....the lacing sys looks sturdy...I don't think B would overlook something THAT crucial?

when i tried on the ambush the lacing seemed sturdy im jsut questioning how well the system will hold up with time. i know laces can get snagged or cut and will start to frill. is it easy to get the laces replaced o do most board shops cary replacement laces if something does go wrong, and can you get the boot as tight as you want?

second day in them: NO need to overtighten, at all..the system works great, overtightne and your feet will go numb. So the breaking lace story is a mith...Unless you do it on purpose.
Lacing is Fast and it's not messy once done, love my boots so far...and the oprions they have ( stiff...or stiffer)
