KCoCMwondering what you have to say about the fit difference between same size full tilt original and full tilt soul shells. i know i could probably go try them both on for myself but it’s not really the same as having skied both of them. mainly interested in how the toe box feels, as that’s really the only difference on paper. fto is dropkicks/ original, FTS is first chair and tw pro
SlowbroFTS has a bigger toebox and feels roomier overall. FTO crushed my toes, FTS didn't.
KCoCMis it wideness or height or both? i guess i’m confused as to how the last is the same but it’s said the toe box is wider?
SlowbroNot sure, but I think last is the width at the forefoot so a bigger toe box wouldn’t change the last measurement.
tomPietrowskiToe Box is very very similar. The last width is the same it comes down to a slight depth difference due to adding the replaceable soles rather than the solid sole. But they are very similar. Honestly the CAD laid on top of one another is basically the same. The bigger difference really is the stand height and it's that which most of our athletes use to decide if they want to go FTS or FTO.
KCoCMare you referencing how FTS has replaceable toe and heel whereas FTO only has replaceable heel piece?
edit: or sole as in the like removable boot board underneath liner in FTS? i’ve only ever owned first chairs never FTO

tomPietrowskiYes the bottom of the shell. Obviously to add the space for the screws and the change in the lower shell to add the replicable soles we had to change a few things when it came to the overall mold.
If you have been skiing the First chair I would stick with the FTS. The new Wallisch and Revolver Team look so good next season.
