Ronix Hardware

so just bought a new board a 2012 ronix pheonix and 2013 liquid force boots. now i know there was the change in the hardware from 2012 to 2013. Does anyone know if the 2012 ronix bolts if i buy them will be long enough for the 2013 boots or are there any other soloutions people have used?

Easier to just go to a local hardware store if you don't have matching boots/board...

When I picked up my 2013 Franks, I got a little box with both sets of hardware in it. What set do you need? My Bill came with bolts I used, so both sets that came with the boots are extra. Let me know, you can have them if I've got what you need.

I have a 2011 Ronix Pheonix - I freaking love that board at the cable park. No fins baby! It is like riding on butter across the features. Surface 180's just with a little flick and it is right around. I even tried it once behind the boat and it has half way decent pop but you can play with it on the surface like no other.

My son has the Pheonix S - I hope you don't have that board. It carves nice but a little sticky on the features.

Anyways, my 2011 has 1/4-20 threads. There is a chance that they switched to M6 in 2012 and I'm not aware of it. Liquid Force Boots now come with M6 hardware (screws) by default. If the bolt has any resistance going in then it is the wrong one. Putting in the wrong bolt will damage the threads.

Go to your local hardware store that has a good selection of bolts. You would prefer stainless steel but zinc coated will work if you replace them every once in a while. The length that worked perfect for my Ronix board and Hyperlite System bindings currently are 1" in length. Prior I use to get longer bolts and cut to length using a dremel cut-off wheel (you can also use a fine hack saw), grinder to clean up the end and then finish with a fine file. If you take that route, also get the correct nut. Put the nut on before you cut the bolt. Then removing the nut will clean up the threads at the end.

To figure out the correct size - rest the binding beside the bolt hole. Then put a longer bolt down into the threads. You want it to nearly bottom out but at that point be just below the area where it will contact the binding. That is the perfect size to have maximum thread connection and hold down the binding tightly.

I also found out later that my local boat/board shop carries replacement bolts. They just give me the correct bolts gratis.

Did you just get out of the hospital when you took that picture? What's the bracelet on your left wrist?

Yep, cable park. I frequent the cable park as well. Wakeboarding - its addicting! I haven't been there in a couple of weeks; I need to get back there. If only I lived closer to it. The Ronix Pheonix is a boat/park crossover board. I've only tried it once behind the boat but absolutely love it in the park.
