Alright boys took the plunge! Got them on EVO for $175. Had $140 in credit card cash back so ultimately cost me like 35 bucks all in. Will report back on experience. Obviously will go to a boot fitter and pay for that service. Hope they fit well! Really need something much more high performance and I think these will deliver. Have read mixed reviews online so who knows
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
