Update on my patron pros...only thing I have done to them is put in a new footbed. I have very narrow/skinny feet and these things fit very nicely. Have been wearing them around my house a lot to get a feel for them (though it wont come close to actually skiing in them) before I get bootwork done on them.
They are pretty dam stiff boots, little ankle flexibility, seems like exactly how they were described online. A race boot with a more free ride oriented stance / more shock absorbtion.
From what I have read about the new GPX 130's...they have only improved on the problems with the PAtron pro. If I were you i'd go for them assuming they fit your feet pretty well.
