onenerdykidForgot to add: the first thing to usually die is the liner. It just becomes packed out beyond revival, and you will lose your fit and warmth. This is generally the first sign that you need new boots or at least need a new liner.
fuckmekevinThanks, yea I purchased new Pro-liners from FT for the classics two years ago but skied them less than 20 times. The problem with my fulltilts is no matter how tight I have them and with booster straps laterally and the tongues feel soft. For instance if I'm going over bumps it feels as if my legs just push through the entirety of the FT tongues, there's like a floppiness to them that makes them hard to control at speed or if going over bumps. Now these are 6 flexes and I tried 8 which is slightly better but still not great.
When hand flexing the tongues they feel stiff as fuck but this doesn't seem to be the case when I'm skiing. Maybe they're stiff and I just think they're soft? idk
onenerdykidEach brand has boots that flex and feel differently. Some are more linear in their flex pattern, some are more progressive. From what you've said, it sounds like you might benefit from a boot with a more progressive flex pattern. It could be a different Full Tilt, or a different brand entirely, but something with a more solid feel and progressive flex.
