32 lashed

Are they good for people with wide feet? Heard a lot of good things about these boots. Also was wondering will there be any significant differences between the current 32 lashed and next seasons ones?

I've got a 155 dh2.1 I can hold a good press for fairly long, but I wouldn't say it was the easiest thing to press. I'm looking for a more buttery board too and I have very similar stats. DH2.1 is...

Thanks for the info guys. Seems like I wrote flow off too quick. Definitely like to try some of those out if possible. If I were to get contrabands it would definitely be next seasons ones.

I've never noticed anything with the toe ratchet tbh.

I'm interested in these cantered footbeds though. I take it none of the 2012 unions have them? or at least I never saw anything on it.
