Banshee's have always been a pretty good boot (yes Ihave skied them in the past). The only problem really is the infamous lange bang (shin bang - which sucks), and that Lange has gone to a rather narrow upper, so if you have decent sized calfs you might not fit em too well.
But, if your looking for boots, go to a bunch of shops, get different opinions. Most higher end boots are all pretty good with slight variations (the cuff may be different, heel room, toe box, the list goes on and on). Basically find something that you are comfortable in, and remember that boots are much more flexible when they are warm, and also realize that your feet/legs have not shrunk down yet (yes they shrink in the winter due to the cold weather and constant exposure to ski boots), so make sure that you don't get a boot that is 'super comfy' now, becuase changes are that you'll be swimming in the boot once the season really gets going.
