I FINALLY got to ski my new System 8 last weekend.:D The conditions weren't very good. Wow is that thing fast compared to the old Mach 1 I was riding. This is my first ski with double high-wraps (Large Animal bindings) and I have to ask this REALLY dumb question........Is there an easy way to get double high wraps off your feet? I know the bindings are new, but WOW are they hard to get off my feet.

Have you been undoing the laces before you try to take them off? I generally take my front foot out first then the back so that you can push while pulling.

Until I used the approach boots, I ran loose laced, and could just pop it off by pushing down on one foot. With the approach, I had to unlace. With the Wileys I'm now using, I'm back to popping it off.

Yea, I'm undoing the laces. I know they are new bindings but my buddy who has a front Animal highwrap says his have hardly loosened up after a few years. I guess I will have to wait to see if they get worn in a little.
