So I bought the booters because they fit me by far the best outta any boot ive tried.. Would it be worth it to buy the #6 stiffness tongue to replace the #4 for pow days? HATE the fact that they arent making any stiffer tongues, seems pretty obvious that they are just trying to get extra money outta people
short and simple.. i like it.. any other opinions?
last year i bought a stiffer tounge for my booters for racing, and then just used the softer one for park
It's actually because the #6 Influence tongue is super stiff in order overcome the really soft shell material. Making a #8 Influence tongue wouldn't bend very well, especially with fewer tongue corrugations when compared to the Original tongue design.
so youre saying that the #6 should be enough stiffness for pow skiing? because if so this would make my day
No, my answer was just to show that FT wasn't being cheap and that they just can't really make the Influence tongues any stiffer than #6. Whether that is or is not stiff enough for you is something I can't answer over the interweb because I don't know your weight nor have the ability to assess your ankle's range of motion.
I understand that but more of what I am wondering is if the difference is noticeable or if the difference between 4 and 6 is not worth the 50 dollars
go to your boot fitter, see if they have any, and then put a 6 on your left foot and a boot u know is stiff enough for powder on your right. test it out, switch. just like buying boots in the first place
A couple of kids that go to my school started raping for fun and their shit turned out pretty nice - jweid
yeah i would do that but noone has any replacement tongues
