Just thought I'd post a poll on what our readers are using…


I'm using Clicker HBs (step-ins).

edit to add: Please note this poll does not represent the intire splitboard market...just the readers here.

Nitro Team boots I believe. It's sad, I just bought them at the end of last season and I already forget what model they are. Soft boots for sure, and dang comfortable for long hikes.

Soft boots and straps.

Has anyone used Switch boots and bindings? I've got an old pair I might bust out. They seem heavy though.

I used to have a set of switch. Loved them. But that was when the plate was flat and all the support was in the boot. I liked them because there wasnt much support in the boot. Like the old days . Skating in your vans

Raichle SB123 hardboots, modded by myself, stepin heels, vibram soles in the front, cut down cuffs. Afraid they may be my favorite boots now for everything, except the race stick!

Burton Ions. They're nice except that they aren't built to last, and both pairs I've had developed a major pressure point around the achilles (http://www.splitboard.net/talk/viewtopic.php?p=4635#4635). Before that I had an old pair of leather Burton Freestyle boots that I used and repaired for several seasons. Someday I'll try some hard boots for the hell of it. Maybe I'll buy fassnor's FFYB's.
