How much will my skiing improve going from 90 to 130 flex?
I'm 5"11, 180 and I have technica agent 90s with surefoot liners and they fit great, but they're not stiff enough. I ski a bit of everything, trees bumps pow, general all mountain shit but rarely park. will I notice a huge difference in control if I go to a higher flex boot?
also, if I got a pair of agent 130s, are they the same fit as the agent 90s? like ould I put my surefoot liners in them? thanks.
First, a guy your weight will most likely have no issue with skiing a 130 flex. But you never know until you try one on and see for yourself. 130 is not that stiff of a boot, but it will be WAY more responsive than your current one. It will transmit more energy to the ski, allowing you to work less for the same turn or press or whatever. If you can properly flex it, it will be a good thing for you.
Secondly, this is the super confusing thing about Tecnica Agent series- they do not all use the same fit. The Agent 130 is narrow lasted 98mm boot, whereas your boot is 102mm I believe. Very different fitting boots, so your old liner will not swap over and most likely the 130 is the wrong fit for you if your current boot is the right fit.
