Default Salomon Boots

Alright, so time for me to ask you guys a question.

I just recently picked up a pair of Ride Strapper Keepers, but I had doubts about them until I finally gave in and returned em. I've owned Salomon boots from 6 years ago and found them to be super comfy. However, the lacing system at that time sucked balls. They loosened up every run and the little handles did not stay clipped onto the boot.

So here's my question... How are the new quick laces on modern Salomon boots? Do they hold up? Any loosening issues?

I've been wearing F22s for two seasons now and have over 100 days on them and I've never had an issue with them loosening up.

I believe I stated my views in a previous discussion with you on this subject, but to recap: there is a place to tuck the pull handle now. It doesn't come off. And the locking mechanism is fixed on the tongue rather than sliding on the laces, so it holds better.

I wore my new F20s (2009-10 model) for the first time on Saturday and did not experience any type of loosening. Much more secure than my old Dialogues.

@JoeR: Yea, I remember that discussion now

I got 07-08 Salomon boot. Malamute is the stiffest one.

In fact, the hande doesn't stay very well, it falls off the boot whet you walking in deep powder(once you get far away and cant ride, but walk). It happen one time a day, or about.
Lacing system... well, i got a flatfoot, so i lace off my boots after a cople of rides. After a small break, when i lace it up again, and if i lace 'em correctly(tight enough, but no overtigthening) i can ride all the day. May be i'd tighen up the higher part of boot(last clip) for extra hold after a dinner.

You can think that the problem still exsist, but remember that i use 08 model, and i prefer quite tight fit, on a stiffest model. Personally i think, it'd be way better on f22-f24 boot and you'd be happy with latest one.

I've got f24's and haven't had any major issues with the lacing system. The lace did pull out of the handle once but it took a philips and <5mins to fix it. If I don't make sure the teeth in the mechanism at the top on the tongue fully engage the lace one side may pop out. But if I check to make sure, eveything has been fine.

I'll be using the 09 F20's for this season. No snow days on them yet but a few backyard jib sessions with them. The lace system is slow but I love it. Not a single problem. The adjustable stiffness system in the F20's is freakin badass as well. I can't figure out how it works but it does.
