    Hi all,

    This is my first post here on the FJ Community. I am in the market for a pair of FJs but have so many questions that I hope people's experiences can assist me with. Has anyone managed to accidentally break the cables in a BOA system? Would there be any stretched cable issues over time which would cause the inability to tighten the shoe? Lastly, I was watching the Golf Fitness Academy last season and noticed Dave Phillips was wearing an all black pair of FJ Sport with a red heel - I cannot find this particular shoe, would it just be custom made for the TPI guys or is it possible to order?

    Thanks for your help FJ Community

    BOA carries a lifetime warranty so anytime it malfunctions, it will be repaired.  The cables itself will not stretch, they carry a very high tensile strength.

    I can assure you they were not a custom pair.  They were most likely FJ Style No. 53249 from our 11-12 Catalog.

    Devin,

    Thank you for your prompt and great response. So professional.

    Can one still order this?

    Not directly from us, your best bet may be to try various online retailers. Given the age of this one though, I wouldn't be to hopeful.  

    Our latest FJ Sport Boa is white and red? It also features a more stable oustole and a reconfigured BOA system.

    Best,

    DG

    I have A LOT of BOA shoes (5+ pair) and have never in recent years had any problems whatsoever with the BOA system malfunctioning.  It is an awesome system and I love it!!

    You mean these: www.carlsgolfland.com/.../footjoy-fj-sport-boa-golf-shoes-2012-black-red-53249.html

    There are a couple of deals on Icons these there as well.

    It's great to hear so much support for the BOA system.  I'm going to take the leap and try a pair.

    Thanks to all! Will definitely be securing a pair.

    Like Devin mentioned- lifetime warranty on BOA.  

    I can vouch for the best the customer service in dealing with BOA on FootJoy Sport (I have a white with charcoal).  Also, the cables are tough and almost impossible to break.  Nothing to worry about.  Just slip it on, lock and load-- it's good to go!

    Hope to see a picture of your new kicks, soon!

    Good luck. Thought about picking those up but decide to go with a pair of Contour Casuals and Icons this round. Hope it works out; the pricing is great.
