Connelly Draft Bindings

Give me some feedback. Are any of you running on Connelly draft bindings? I'm getting ready to order a new F1X and cant decide between the Stokers or the Draft boots. I've been happy with the Stokers on my Concept but dont want to pass up something better if the opportunity presents itself.

Is the support and control that much better? Does it release in a hard fall or do you stay in the boot? What has your experience been?

I should get mine on tuesday, and hopefully I'll get to try them in the next few weeks. I'll try to remember to review them here.

Oh, and I know I'll stay in the boot, I've used the hinge wakeboard bindings.

I didn't like the stokers that came with my concept, my feet were too narrow but I couldn't go down in size due to foot length. And with no forefoot adjustment I just couldn't get them to support any better.

Don't have input on the drafts though.

shamrock, glad you like thier customer service. The first guy I talked to said he was going to have them shipped the same day or the next......he then proceeded to get fired or quit, and 2.5 weeks later they still hadn't shipped....but then I talked to Jamie, and he shipped them the next day. I'm itchin' bad to try them out, but the boat is out of commision right now, oh and the water is like ice water.
