Booster Straps - Intermediate Model - 2 pair

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have 2 pair of the regular/intermediate booster straps available, these are the model with the two elastic straps. I acquired these in the tuning box-o-goodness I referenced in my post for the Ski Man guide. I don't need them, but they'd be great for someone. They appear to have been very lightly used, if at all. I'd like $15 per pair, plus shipping.

Bump. Make me an offer.

I would buy these if I did not already have a couple pair.  I have been running Booster Straps on my boots for about 10 years and cannot imagine skiing without them.  They are the cheapest most effective upgrade you can give your boots.  Stock "power straps" do not flex, although new models of many high end boots are finally starting to incorporate this feature.  If you replace your rigid power straps with Boosters it will sweeten up the flex of your boots, and get rid of the front ankle bang problem.  I do not know MNSking 10, but these are a good deal on a good product.   Cheapest  and easiest way on the planet to improve your boots performance and feel.

 

Do not let the "intermediate model" put you off.  The 2-band ones are stiff enough for most people. The  3-band  ones are very stiff and IMO only needed for aggressive heavy weights or racers.  I am 215 lbs. and after skiing the 3-band ones for years have switched to the 2-band model and find they provide plenty of supportive sweet flex.

I'll take a pair for the $15.  I work in the Carlson Towers for an easy drop off if you're out on the west side.
