Also, candyman, are you suggestion a dalbello axion 8,10, or a 12? I was looking for last size on these and can't find it on their site. I am guessing they are around 102mm since it says they are wider. And the axion 8 or 10 would be what I would lean towards, thanks for the suggestion, I'm going to check them out.
I don't know about that, a boot that has a softer tounge or a softer foward flex will deffinately help in the boot bang department. I have my technicas set to be as flexable as possible, I even have my canting screws set back. And while I don't get shin bang often, it would be nice if the toung would flex a bit more so when I do hit something really big I don't pay the price the next day. And I am glad to hear FT's are not made in china, suprisingly since K2 own's them. Still can't say I'm a K2 fan so I'm a little turned off but atleast they won't have problems like salomon and boots falling apart the second day someone puts them on. I wish they made a 102mm last seth full tilt boot sign me up for a pair.
