So I'm hoping to avoid the animosity that seems to surround full tilt flex ratings; but I still would like to ask this question: Is there a magical elusive 12 flex tongue?
I love my First Chair 10 (actually the last seth mo's) but I feel they could still be stiffer. I personally doubt that people like Bode Miller and Seth Morrison are rocking these exact boots. They're stiff but nothing crazy. Asked my local FT dealer and the guy (albeit not the lead boot fitter) said he thought they felt as stiff as any 130 race boot he has tried... To me they're softer than my old Rossi Pursuit Sensor 110.
Let's all try to remember that flex rating are completely arbitrary and do our best to refrain from telling others they/their mothers are idiotic.
