hey newschoolers i get to pick a pair of full tilts out for christmas so i was thinking of getting the seth mo's or the drop kicks with a 10 flex tounge... does anyone have experience with them... i will mostly be using them in powder all mountain skiing and also a bit of park
well first off as always, do you know they are the right boots for you? but aside from that, No, they are not a great choice for boots honestly. I have had personal experiences with them in competitive slopestyle and moguls where boots make the difference between control and out of control. There is no question that these boots are comfortable if they fit, but the shell itself is maleable and thin which will take away tremendously from edge control. I could feel the boot warping and deforming in the middle of my runs.
They are also not very good in the sense that the tongue is made of what i beleive is polyurethane or some other substance that does not have rebounding properties. If you try on a pair of boots like Nordica's or Dalbello's you will notice a spring from the tongue that resets your stance after you stop driving them. When you look at FT's the tongue does not do this.
Go to boot fitter, see if Full Tilts fit first of all, if they do don't get the Drop Kick. Thats the most park oriented boot alongside the Booter. Look at the Original, the Seth Mo's are really big mountain/deep powder oriented and you will probably be over whelmed by them.
What do you think makes them big mountain? They only have the 8 tounge which is not that stiff. They are a good choice though if you have to go full tilt as try at least have the replaceable soles and metal buckles. Those two features I would say are a must so if you have to go full tilt a Seth is a good choice really.
