I had, crazy fly straps, they nice and wide, and really soft and comfy, and mystic 3DOs for pads, I almost didn't buy these, cause someone at a kiteshop suggested that they had some returns cause they're a bit slippery, and never really got better; to tell you the truth, these things sometimes I couldn't get them off, lol. Very cushy and comfy. My only complain with the straps is that if a bit of sand got in it, the velcro didn't hold that well. Sometimes when landing hot, the pressure would rip the strap right open, and my foot would go flying out, when I figured out what the issue was, I'd just open them up after every sesh, and make sure the velcro was clean.
They only thing suck about these pads, is that me and another buddy, both with Hadlow boards (the generation before the MK2) both right pads the base cracked on the same 3rd hole of the inside of the pad. Mine lasted a little longer than his, cause he's truly a kite addict and he's out all the time, and I have to work, lol, but is funny that they both cracked on the same spot. so not sure if the board had something to do with it, or the pad itself.
One of my buddies, which he ended up buying the MK2 after demoing my board for a day, didn't like my pads, I think he said they're to hard.
Hope this helps.
