-My parents both ski on the original Raichle Flexon and swear by them
-I just finished racing and need a boot i can stay in all day instead of ground out race plugs
-I am used to a stiffer boot (130 flex), and prefer responsiveness over sloppiness. Fairly aggressive, type 3+ skier
-I ski west coast, mt Hood mostly, a little park, a little powder, a little ice, a little slush, a few groomers
-Im 6'2", 180 pounds
-Technically i have a "wide" foot. However Full Tilts have a 98mm last, and so does the boot I have raced in the past 2 years
-I shell fit my dad's Flexons and they felt real good in terms of width
-Please no replies of "dude full tilts are narrow get SPK's!"
-Please no replies "go to a boot fitter", I am going to Evo on Monday to try them on.
I would like answers from owners of Full Tilt Konflict's & Full Tilt Hot Doggers. I have narrowed my choices down to those 2 and the new Seth's.
-What is the J-Bar?
-How much of a difference between Active and Rigid bootboards?
-How soft is a #6 tongue? a #8 tongue? #10 tongue?
-The "wide toe" for 09/10 is just a thinner liner, how much difference does 2mm make seriously?
Im very interested in these because of the fame they have in comfort and control, not because Todd Walnuts uses them. If there is another boot you think would fit my specs better, make sure and say why. If you think Full Tilts wont work at all for me, id like to hear your reasons.
And yes, I'm going to a bootfitter. I would just like to know what model to try as my starting point in terms of flex, width, and bootboard.
Thank you in advance, legitimate replies are much appreciated, maybe some of those silly karma thingys will be given out too who knows...
Did i mention that I am going to a bootfitter? Yes, I am.
