yeah no worries man. It just works for me as i am sure it would for a lot of others. I dont believe laces suck, they just dont have the leverage over the boot that a boa does. If a lace breaks you still have to come back and fix it just like a boa . The first thing i did when i got mine was pull a boa apart and put it back together. Its not that hard.

Ive had my K2 T1 Dual-BOA for 2 seasons now (around 50 days riding in total) and the only problem Ive had was that one of the knobs broke and wouldnt tighten anymore. Went into the local shop and they fixed in 2 minutes luckily. Other than that I have no complaints. This is my third set of boots and Im definatly going for Dual-Boa again when its time to replace them.

I've had lace up and double boa 32's, both work great with out complaint, double boas are just more convient/faster to get into/out of.

Wouldn't be suprised any more if any resort worth a shit can fix anything on a BOA pretty quick and have you back out there. I'm thinking lace you just tie to itself if it breaks.

When I tried to fix mine, the mechanism exploded and little parts went flying everywhere (user error I won't try to deny, but that thing was jammed as fuck).

everything you say may well be true but you are talking about the worst possible scenario which may never happen to most people. The benefit of not having heel lift far outweighs the potential bad day you could have if one fails and you are not capable of fixing it.

Blew my front knob off my Vans Fargos at Keystone when I hit a rock in the fucking asshole of that resort. Had to take 3 chair lifts and a gondola to get to the base area to get it fixed. Walked into the shop walked right back out in 5 minutes and back on the hill.
