My KD7000 had them. They are great bindings. Added bonus is they have readily available replacement parts and overlays for repairs.

Word up on that!

My buddy has them on his HO Triumph and loves them. They are SUPER comfortable bindings. I have skied htem, and they are VERY comfortable. I am hooked on the Animal bindings, but those Wileys are very nice.

All these replies are great to hear as I'm waiting for my new ski from Wiley's to arrive.

Good quality at a good price.....had four different slalom skis in the boat this weekend, all different models (2HO and 2 O'Brien), all had Wiley's bindings. I don't know of anyone I ski with who has recently bought a ski w/ bindings from anywhere else.:dance:

I have Wiley bindings front and back on my Connelly F1. They are the best binding I've ever used. They are very comfortable. I highly recommend them.

I really like my Wiley bindings on my Verdict. A friend bought a verdict with contact bindings and hated them so he bought a KD7000 with Wiley's on it as a replacement. He really enjoys them as well.

Does anyone know if the holes on a Wiley's binding will match up with the holes on an HO ... I have someone who wants to buy my CDX 70" blank ... and I took off the "Animals" (ski is a 03) ... but neither of us are sure if the "bolt pattern" is the same.

Wiley told me a story when I placed an order last week that went something like this:

"One year the O'brien rep recognized us as selling more O'brien ski's than anyone in the country. He noted though, that we just bought blanks, never any with O'brien bindings. I told him that if we sold them with O'brien bindings, we wouldn't be your #1 seller."

Nice bindings.

When you order them, you can specify the hole pattern that you need.

Just bought some for my wife for her 04 Truth. Like Beef said, just pick the ones for HO hole pattern and you're good.

I have them as well and love them, they stay on when you need them to and come off when they need to. However, I do have high arches and after a long set my feet will cramp up.

Don't know about any of the other bindings, it seems that some of them have footbeds that are all cushie.

Thought about gluing some of those insoles onto the ski inside the binding.

I've heard of people doing this. I may try my wife's boots on my monza and see how I like them.

Wiley's has two hole patterns for the rear boot ( D3/KD and HO). The front boot pattern should work. You'll have to determine which pattern the rear boot has.

Anyone gone from the Approach boots to the Wiley trick wrap in the font? Comparison?

I'm a 10 1/2 4E, never have found a real comfortable ski boot :) When I ski I am always looking forward to getting out of my boot.

Best boots ever are my whites http://www.whitesboots.com/

You could probably get a plate and some duallock velcro and mount those bad boys up pretty quick.

BUMP on the trick wrap question.
