I didn't see this asked before; I just got a pair of Thirty Two Focus dual zone boa. Does it matter if they're stored with the boa slightly tightened and locked, or should I loosen them up and release the lock? Seems to me leaving them loose makes sense, but I'm not sure...I want these puppies to last. Thnx.

I've had a pair of DC Scout Boa for over two years and I've always stored them loose. Never had a cable break or any other type of failure.
I have the same boots, and i store them the same way. Seems to be fine. I've never had a BOA cable fail on me yet.

I have dual zone boa on my DC Judge boots. I always store them unlocked. Never had a cable break on me but I have had a couple knobs snap off. Extremely easy to fix by the way, and boa sends any replacement part you want for free, no questions asked.

The Thirty Two's come with two extra sets of wire. I was worried at first...does this mean they expect them to break? The guy at the snowboard shop said he'd only seen the wires break once.

storing them either way shouldn't really affect the boa at all, storing them a little tightened is more for the boot keeping its shape when not in use. during summer storage i use to lace up my traditional style boots for this reason.

now a days my boots barely last a season anyway so i dont really bother with it anymore.

they add the extra wires so that IF the wires do break, you wont have to wait for a warranty to send you new ones and won't miss any days on the hill. it does happen but i don't think its a common occurrence. i wouldn't worry about it too much.

So, Cr0, I take it you're a Mt. Snow regular? We had an awesome day there last weekend. Great conditions! Thanks for the info...I love the Thirty Two Focus boas so far. The boa is the best thing ever! But I'm bummed to hear that boots only last a year or two...I thought I was buying shitty boots. I've yet to get two seasons out of a pair, no matter how much I spend I spend on them.
