snowklinger I like trad laces but I'd use BOA again probably.

When I used them the boots didn't fit, the laces failed, the mechanism jammed and then exploded when I tried to fix/replace it....still...now that they can fix them pretty much anywhere on-hill......

poutanen I have Burton speedlaces on my last three pair of boots (2009 Serows, 2011 Driver X, and now 2010 Driver X).

I have about 75 days on my current pair and have no issues with the lacing system. Love it. I do the lower zone up a little loose and the uppers fairly tight. I like that if I need a mid-day adjustment I can usually do it without even removing my front foot from the binding.

Sassicaia My experience with the burton quick lace is that it doesnt hold. It seems to loosed after a couple of run. Im going to back to boa.

the metal on the board over time cuts into the cable, the first time time I've heard of someone breaking a cable like that but it's easy to replace.

KrisBKreeme I have Ride BOA boots and they're awesome. I dont need to tighten them throughout the day unless I wanna make it tighter than I originally had them. All that take is a few turns and bam.

TopThriller I like BOA, but I wouldn't recommend BOA boots with the metal cable exposed on top of the boot. I broke 2 cables last year because of my board edges and such. The do have warranty on them however. I now ride DC Gizmo's with half BOA, half laces and my boots are so comfy. They have a cover over the top of the boot so only about an inch of cable is shown on the side of the boot. Recommend
