I have my eye on the 1080 boots. For the people that have either the 01-02, or the 02-03 version, how do you like them? How are they compared to other non-jibbing boots?

I've got the Pro Model from last year are they are sick sick boots, a little stiffer than the 1080 but better for all-mtn, they still rock the park though
I like the 02-03 better than last winters boots because they seemed a little stiff.
the only change to the pro model is cosmetic
having got both - the actual difference between the pro and the 1080 is the flex (pro is stiffer), the liner (this year the pro has the top salomon heatmoldable liner, the 1080 has the basic autofit one) and if i remember right the pro is dual cant and the 1080 single.
If you are weighing like 130 or less, or you dont ski outside the park, then the 1080 is fine. if you ski everything, or are heavier the pro is more suitable.
best thing about both though is the silicon sole they both have to absorb heavy landings which is way cool compared to boots that dont have it, as you dont realise how much your feet hurt from heavy landings till you go with boot that has some kinda shock absorption...
just make sure it fits first though....
