Nothing "happy" about happy feet. have to adjust them all the time, don't give the support foam gives. i think they're really just a gimmick. My feet move all over the place and I never feel I have anything solid to push against when playboating. I am ready to pull the system out and put in a good old fashioned foam block. Today I had to replace the chord on my jackson backband--on a star I just purchased new last fall. It was totally shredded. Great boat, not so great outfitting.
