I have had multiple pairs of drop kicks and really like full tilt. I like that you can customize the fit very easily, no rivets to deal with, all you need is a screw driver. They fits my foot well and are very light. But in truth, the technology other boot companies have come out with far surpass any reason to really ski a 30 year old boot model. Until Full Tilt has a fully moldable shell (like Salomon or Nordica), or at least one that is easier to heat and shape; i dont see why you would choose a Classic or Drop Kick or any full tilt over other boots on the market that are in the same product range.
