i looked into BOA laces when i got my last pair of snowboard boots. for all of the great things it has, i couldn't past what i would do if a lace broke when i was at the top of the mountain. with golf, that's not as big of a deal. and i know they are very durable, but for me it was just all in my head.
CROCMANLove the theory behind the BOA and I'm all for no more laces ... ever but just can't get around the nob at the back.
Maybe if they can somehow streamline or reposition that I'd look at it further. It's position is part of what makes it so great, being on the heel of the shoe allows the system to pull your foot down into the shoe for the most secure fit. Also, how often do you look at your heels when playing? Just saying!
i agree with you, but one of the reasons i wear FJ Icons is because they look so good. i think the knob on the back takes a little away from the look. so the question becomes, is the a little being taken away from the look worth the added benefits?
