I'm still rockin the 01' Line Transfer boot. It's pretty sick. I have it set so it's not too stiff but not too soft. As far as shin bang goes I haven't really had a problem. Only setback might be that they are a little heavy. the transfer was designed to be a park boot. but you can change it up a little for all mtn.
king skiing preppy again since 1999.
