Pros: Very precise, grabs my narrow foot like a clamp, but still allows for toe wiggling, all day comfort without a second thought
Cons: Very precise
My first run, on hard snow, was a little scary as they respond to every little wiggle in a way that I do not recall the Langes ever doing. It only took about three runs, however, for them to whip me into shape and by the second day, they seemed like old friends already. Clearly, my skiing has advanced in the last 8 years to where my body knows better what signals to send than the Langes can respond to (though, in fairness, the packed out liners certainly don't help). What particularly impresses me is the way the Rampages hold an edge through the entire turn once the edge is set. I believe that edge hold is what initially scared me as that makes for purely carved turns that must be completed to control speed; no more scarving to slow things down. They are a huge kick when deeply railing GS style turns on the groomers. Just don't get caught in the back seat!
I am writing this in the SLC airport waiting for some friends to arrive from back East, hugely looking forward to days 4-10 in these boots!
BTW, I'm 140# and have skied the boots so far with Volkl All Stars, 168 cm, Blizzard Supersonics, 167 cm, and Blizzard Titan Eos, 166 cm. The 80 flex seems right on for me, but I intend to try the stiffening inserts this week to see what happens.
