Sick boot, only gave it a 9 because they are pretty pricey, but if you can afford them, or get them from a season old or somethin at a discount, and they fit your foot definately get them you wont be disappointed. (unless you're a wuss and the lack of insulation will bother you) If you have any questions about them feel free to pm me.
Awesome, it's a pretty low volume boot with a super thin shell which makes for incredible sensitivity and reactiveness. Not the best on the cold days, but invest in some silk sock liners and you'll be fine.
Nothing too out of the ordinary, the honeycomb cut on the outside of the boot makes the outside flex a lot more, on the promodels the holes actually go all the way through the shell, with just a thing rubbery sheet of plastic to seal them up. They are super lightweigh, and look cool I guess (although not the best basis for buying a boot).
I'm not sure they're worth the $600 or whatever it is they go for in shops, I got them under $300, and at retail price I would say the foil or spk is probably a better value these days. Although if you have the cash laying around, and want something geared more towards all mountain performance than park these will definatley perform better than the foils and spks. They also fit a bit more narrow though so make sure you get the one that fits your foot.
85 on salomon's scale, I find it to be a pretty good compromise. could be softer for park at times, could be stiffer out of the park, but if you only own one boot this is about as good as you can get for a 50/50 park/all mountain boot.
I've used them for one season, they have the normal scuffs (and dirt as you can see, from summer stuff). durability isn't really an issue they'll hold up.
