so I've gotten fitted for some new boots and want to try out a 3 piece boot - the fitter put me in a Dalbello Boss at first, but I also tried out the Dalbello Voodoo as well and both fit me well. The Boss is supposed to be a stiffer flex, but I can't feel a massive difference in store in regards to the smoothness of the flex. I'd be happy to go with either boot - just not sure which is actually going to be better for me in the park mostly.
- Voodoo is a bit lighter and has this hyperband cuff (similar to the Il Moros) which is supposed to help give a smoother flex and help with shinbang.
- Boss is a bit heavier, 3 buckles with a powerstrap at the top instead. Seems a bit burlier.
I'm trying to decide between the two of them now as i'm usually around 65% park nowadays, and really trying to reduce the shinbang (and apparently my knees are starting to die from sport and skiing according to my physio girlfriend). Need to reduce the damage with some more natural flexing boots. Can't stop skiing yet.
Does anyone have any experience with both boots? Any big differences in regards to shinbang and landing switch? (i.e. does the hyperband cuff do much to help?)
Thanks in advance!
